What We Do:

ACI conducts its own primary research using surveys, interviews, and social observation techniques while also collecting secondary research done by academics, businesses, and other credentialed institutions.

We use this vetted info to develop practical tips & tools to educate and coach individuals and groups. We use a variety of expertly designed training formats, each with the goal of being immediately applicable and forever transformational.
