Empowering a more mindful community

Effinity is the professional development program of Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa, Fla., that builds leadership skills, improves team dynamics, creates a high-performing organizational culture, and improves client and customer outcomes.

Experienced trainers lead sessions customized to your group. Participants walk away feeling refreshed and equipped with the tools needed to continue work and improve their overall well-being.

“What makes Effinity superior in their training? It is interactive, interesting, and research-based,” says Dr. Brenda Reddout, executive director of Talbot House. “Their knowledge of human resource issues also gives them an edge, as they are able to quickly identify potential ‘hotspots’ and address in a non-threatening way.”
