personal and professional development material on paper and on
the Internet. Our focus is the working professional. We publish
in English. We make all of our publications available in both a
traditional paper form and through the web.
We are associated with Workplace Competence International
Limited (WCI - www.wciltd.com),
a consulting and professional development firm that has been in
business since 1986. WCI started
WCI Press in order to make
some of the material that we have used in our practice available
to a wider audience.
In 2005, we contracted with HRD Press to become the North American paper based publisher of the Competency Styles® workbooks. We also made arrangements with Amazon.com to sell these workbooks. That is why you will see reference to their web sites.
We are the source for the Facilitator Kits and Supplies, "Working in Teams: The GPS Profile" and "Managing Others: The MO Profile".
Our current writing and publishing plan will see us bring out material
- providing effective feedback in the workplace,
- developing effective performance contract and performance appraisal methods,
- managing and dealing with conflict in the workplace,
- participating effectively in meetings.
Some of this material is available in draft form on the author's personal web site (www.roelfwoldring.com).
The WCI Press Competency Styles® workbooks
are based on a set of design
principles on which we base all of our professional development materials.
Press follows the following guidelines in
working with its authors and distributors.
- All our publications will be accessible on
paper and on the web. Individuals will
be able to access the media format that suits their needs.
To facilitate this, we will establish a web site for each set
of books that we publish.
- The audience for our books is the
working professional who reads English. As a result,
we edit our publications so that they can be used by individuals
who are motivated to increase their self awareness, their personal
knowledge, and their personal skills.
- We are delighted to work with adult
development professionals who
want to distribute or to use our materials. We will use volume
discounts to make it attractive to do so. We will work out
win-win arrangements that allow you to access to the workshop
and other material that support our publications. Please contact WCI Press if you want to do this.
- As a small publisher, we focus on the
material that we write, not distribution and printing.
Think of us as more of a design house than a traditional publisher.
We work with outside partner firms to print and to distribute
our publications. We make this a seamless experience for
our customers, so that they are do not need to deal with
- We are also delighted to work with organizations
who want to customize our publications for their internal
use. We will help train your trainers and make arrangements
with you to use our publications inside
your organization. Please contact WCI Press if you
want to do this.
