Our Products

Concept Keys has three different product lines: Turn-key Solutions, Private Label, and Blended Content. Our Turn-key Solutions are available for purchase at any time and are ready to go without any need for customization. They cover the gamut from interpersonal skills to avoiding perceptions of sexual harassment to better customer service. Our Private Label product line involves content from the customer or from an outside author. The Blended Content model is available to customers that only want to slightly supplement an existing Turn-key Solution to better fit with their organization or project.

Our programs are classified by size as Small (15 Keys or fewer), Medium (16-30 Keys), and Large (up to 50 Keys). Each program may use the Certification option or remain as a Basic model program.

Regardless of size or model, these programs can serve as supplemental material, extension material, or independent courses. Every program can be provided on a daily or weekly schedule as you feel most beneficial, and you can specify exactly how many Keys and Micro-lessons you want delivered at a time.
