A hallmark of Forward Motion’s engagement approach is our emphasis on customized solutions. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach heavily dependent on canned training courses, we recommend that each engagement begin with an assessment of needs, concerns and objectives, from which an action plan is then defined.

Woodson has given workshops on leadership and diversity management at the invitation of world class organizations such as Indiana University, the University of Michigan, Pfizer, and Johnson and Johnson. A current area of focus is secondary education. Woodson is working with several public and charter school organizations seeking to be more effective in serving students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Contributions in this area have included defining, designing, and delivering leadership, communication skills, and classroom diversity management training to educational administrators, teachers, and advocacy staff. He has also helped define programs designed to increase diversity effectiveness at an organizational level.

Woodson’s multi-cultural and international experience includes planning and executing surgeon training programs involving doctors from around the world. These programs identify and develop high potential, underrepresented surgeon educators as national and international thought leaders. These initiatives met the client’s social service objectives, while bringing advanced surgical techniques to traditionally underserved populations in the U.S. and around the world. At the same time, these programs opened up new patient populations and regional markets to the company, resulting in expanding market opportunities and sales growth.

Woodson’s clients include a new media company targeting urban trendsetters. Also among his client base are local retailers focused on the high end of market, such as luxury automobile dealerships. Such businesses focus on winning in the marketplace by providing exceptional customer service. Because of their customer-centric focus, premium retailers recognize the value of training sales staff in communication and relationship-building skills that enable them to provide an exceptional shopping experiences to all members of a client base that is increasingly female, foreign-born, and non-white.
