Black Crystal Management Training and Workshops are conducted
through the COMET Group, a Contemporary
Organization Management and Employee Training.
Comet is committed to meeting and exceeding
the professional development needs of managers and support
staff through training workshops that are affordable, accessible,
and designed to meet the specific needs of individuals or
groups in any private and or public organizations. These
training workshops feature skills and tips to improve participant's
personal and professional abilities, earn respect, and get
ahead in today's world. Each workshop is designed based
on the current management practices in the public and private
sectors using comprehensive interdisciplinary learning approach.
The workshops will present, illustrate, and explain the
importance and practical application of each subject topic.
Training materials in the form of handouts and homework
exercises will be provided to participants.
Given the rapid and unpredictable changes in technology,
our workshops are very interactive in nature, and tend to
focus on current and future challenges faced by both employees
and the employers. Several sessions will deal with step-by
step role-playing of life events, re-enactment and simulations
of critical management policy decisions or incidents. Other
sessions will use small group discussions and lectures.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a clear
understanding and working perspectives for their role in
their respective organization.
Participants will have the opportunity to identify, discuss,
interact, debate and share experiences on key practical
issues of concern that will be discussed in class. Major
policy and/or management issues currently facing contemporary
organizations will be discussed. Participants will be able
to use what they learn in the training on the job, to enhance
their positions, improve their lives, or to implement changes
within their organization.
Because of the interactive nature of these workshops participants
are encouraged to attend the workshops in their entirety.
They will not only be challenged to demonstrate their understanding
of the course content through class exercises, but will
be required to give detailed analytical reports of the practical
application of what they have learned, at the end of each
workshop. We offer a variety of management training created
for the purpose of improving management skills, advancing
career growth, increasing productivity and reducing work
Educating while increasing the overall efficiency and
effectiveness of work is our goal. Therefore, it is an honor
and a privilege for Comet to provide administrators,
managers, and support staff the essential management tools

Managing and Valuing Diversity Training
The purpose of a managing and valuing diversity training
workshop is to educate, coach, re-train, and increase our
sense of understanding about ourselves and other people
– especially people who are different from us due
to their color, age, nationality, ethnicity, gender, physical
abilities/qualities and sexual preferences or affectional
orientation. It is an opportunity for all humans to learn
how to understand one another.
This managing diversity workshop presents the cross-cultural
practices and other social minority group attributes that
could help an organization and all its employees achieve
greater efficiency, effectiveness, increased productivity,
improve quality of work life, and create a work place free
While major sources of influence that directly or indirectly
affect business decisions include legal, fiscal, environmental,
human resources, service production/delivery, technology,
and organizational structure; valuing differences in the
context of proper cultural diversity management makes good
business sense. This workshop focuses upon an appropriate
contemporary management decision-making process, which rejects
discrimination based upon race, age, life style, gender,
culture and nationality.

values and beliefs to
improve the organization.

We must, we can, and we should, as a people, celebrate
our differences instead of fighting over them. It is the
only way for all humans of different age, races, cultures,
customs, ethnicity, traditions, nationality, gender, religious
beliefs and sexual preferences to get along. Since we cannot
change our race or escape interacting with other people
with diverse race, color and or national origins, we must
learn to accept each other for whom and what we are.
