About us

Dallas based, Training for Hispanics in the Workplace was established in 1992 by Isaac Botbol, a bilingual, Leadership Skills facilitator. He provides workshops throughout the United States and Mexico in the food processing, food manufacturing, and hospitality industries.

Early on in his career, he noticed that while organizations were requesting leadership training for their middle and senior management, there was a general lack of leadership training available for non-English fluent, Spanish speaking supervisors and team leaders. Mr. Botbol’s ability to speak Spanish, along with his experience in production and manufacturing workplaces were the perfect combination for the birth of Training for Hispanics in the Workplace (TFHW). For the last 27 years, TFHW has developed the workshops that have been designed for the specific workplace learning needs of first-generation, non-English fluent Hispanic supervisors, and front line employees.

The workshops provided in The Leadership Series – Level 1, helps them realize the impact their behaviors have on their team members. They learn about the importance of communicating with respect, managing aggressive behaviors, both their own as well as their team members. They learn to manage conflict situations and provide constructive feedback and avoid the automatic tendency to resort to negative criticism.
