Performance Solution Specialist

 

Here at RWL Tech, LLC we have spent years cultivating a culture of learning.  Now we want to share that experience with you.  We want to share our successes, our failures and mostly our hopes and dreams for the future because we believe that learning will be the primary key to success for any individual and for all organizations. 

As we engage in a workplace where knowledge and information evolve at exponential rates, the only way to keep up is to learn.  If your learning programs are not one the most important programs in your organization, your organization cannot and will not be competitive and thrive. 

Join us on our learning journey. 

Cheryl Johnson is a Performance Solution Specialist with more than twenty years of experience in coaching, learning, development and workplace training performance.

Cheryl has dedicated her life to developing learning solutions that drive performance at work and in one's personal life.

It was while working with a partner, VoiceTeach, in 2001, that Cheryl assisted in the instructional design strategy for a powerful interactive patented, landmark online training solution for voice recognition technology long before online learning was deemed to be an effective learning solution. Cheryl continues to seek solutions to aid in the learning and development process. In 2011,

Cheryl partnered with Mental Training, Inc. to develop a revolutionary mobile application, MentalApp Mobile Mental Trainer, that supports high performing athletes in tracking mental training progress and connecting their success to their physical and mental training efforts.

In her volunteer time Cheryl works with people who have mental health issues to educate them on strategies for managing their health and wellness. Cheryl also works with troubled youth and their parents to find successful strategies for navigating the difficult teen years.
