Mixonian Institute was founded in 2009 to serve growing knowledge-based companies with multicultural or international workforces. Our best clients are companies employing scientists, chemists, analysts, programmers, biologists, and other highly-trained professionals. Mixonian communication training raises performance, productivity and engagement.

When your managers spend a day or two in a Mixonian Institute leadership program, they come out as different people. They’re energized, engaged and have an incredible new perspective on their work.

They gain a clarity that reduces confusion at work, which turns out to be an instant productivity booster. More focus on more clear priorities means better performance. Better communication increases engagement and profits.

In teaching growth mindset, emotional intelligence and communication principles, your whole company benefits from the ripple effect. They, in turn, teach their team to be more emotionally mature, to be more proactive and focused. This change results in lower levels of discontent, resentment and frustration.

Mixonian programs are all created from a growth mindset and global perspective. Our instructional designers are leadership communication specialists with multicultural backgrounds.

In the big picture, with enough participation, your whole company culture becomes more appreciative and participative. Your employer brand is stronger and your company attracts a higher-level workforce and enjoys more retention.

This isn’t your dad’s leadership model and it’s not even a U.S. workforce. Immigrants make up 16.4% of the workforce and that percentage is growing. The Mixonian leadership model is informed by diverse thinking, communication and leadership research and decades of experience in the global marketplace….unlike what you’ll study in a typical management class.

It takes a commitment to excellence to be world class in your market. Mixonian develops your talent to take your company to the championship level. Develop your talent and your company culture transforms. And when you get down to it, it’s the culture that makes a global brand.

Mixonian training is not for all companies.

Mixonian works with companies who have a strong international component, which can be a foreign owner, an international sales market and/or a global workforce. It’s for companies where managers are expected to innovate, not to follow cookie-cutter instructions.
