- Two Former FranklinCovey COOs Join Forces
DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SMCOV, the top innovator of highly sought after world-class Intellectual Property (IP) and distribution, announced today the launch of a global training network led by former FranklinCovey COOs David Covey and Stephan Mardyks. SMCOV is releasing a revolutionary approach to training throughout the world. Their creative content adeptly addresses the many complex challenges currently facing both individuals and organizations today.
"SMCOV is all about unleashing amazing human capabilities," according to Covey. Their content "taps into our most natural, innate gifts to give us the specific skills and capacities to both resolve our problems and lead our lives with limitless potential."
SMCOV distributes cutting-edge training programs from some of the most ground-breaking thought leaders around the globe.
"Creating the absolute best worldwide network requires a truly global mindset," Mardyks said. "Our vision is to continue assembling paradigm-shifting content that responds to the complex workforce challenges of our time. There is a definitive need to uncomplicate the complicated, and SMCOV DNA is specially encoded to do just that."
SMCOV has already aligned itself with an impressive arsenal of Intellectual Properties (IPs), which will each have special introductions over the coming weeks.
"We are very excited to reveal these fascinating brands to the world and expect that they will indeed impact millions of lives," Covey said.
"Most training content has been developed in the last 20-30 years and is therefore very outdated," said Mardyks. "Today's jobs require a very different mindset and new complex skills to succeed in the modern marketplace. Our solutions provide individuals and companies with the best chance to become relevant and resilient in today's highly turbulent work environment."
