For more than 30 years, Kirby Edmonds and Laura Branca partnered as the lead consultants of Training for Change (TFC Associates).
TFC Associates was founded in 1981 by Kirby Edmonds, who was a managing partner until his death in August, 2020.
TFC Associates is a consulting and training firm based in Ithaca, New York. We provide consulting services to businesses, government agencies, human service organizations, educational institutions, and community groups. TFC designs and conducts skill-building workshops, learning activities and courses in a wide variety of subject areas. We also provide meeting management and facilitation, lead planning and problem-solving processes, team building sessions, revitalizing retreats, leadership intensives, and our taproot is human relations and assisting individuals and groups who are navigating change.
The core of TFC’s work is in helping groups and individuals increase capacity through making connections, developing alliances, negotiating conflict and bridging differences and building skills in ways that express their values ethically and progressively while accomplishing their goals.
