What We Do


If you’ve met Gretchen and anyone on her team, you know they are confident, seasoned, and know what they are doing. And, you also know, they check their egos at the door. They are happy to play any role you need.

Gretchen will work with you to figure out the best place she and her team can play a role, be it high-level design, the nitty gritty of development, facilitation, or the day-to-day management of a project.

Learning Strategy

Experiencing a big change or shift in your business and not sure how you are going to support the people side of the change? Let Hartke Designs be your thought partner. We’ll work with you to dream about the possibilities and develop actionable next steps to work toward making your vision a reality.

Custom eLearning

Our team has years of experience designing and developing eLearning solutions and are happy to jump into the project wherever you need us—be it at the initial design phase, at the point of development, or anywhere in between.

We are happy to leverage the technologies you already use (Storyline, Lectora, etc) or help you think through the right development approach for your organization.

Instructor Led-Training

We design and develop both classroom and virtual instructor-led training solutions that are active and engaging. We are happy to design and develop in order to hand off to your team of facilitators OR help you with the facilitation as well.


Have a course that is already “in the can,” but need help implementing? We can jump in as facilitators and bring your content to life.

Blended Learning

Often clients have a learning initiative that requires a broader approach. We are able to step back and look at the overall strategy with you to create a blended-learning solution that works in your business environment and leverages technology investments you’ve already made. And, we might just push your thinking about what’s possible!

Learning & Development Project Management

We are master project managers and have a track record of bringing intense, complex learning projects in on time and on budget (and we all still like each other!). We employ this skillset on any project we take on, but can also simply provide project management for already established teams.

Staff Augmentation

Some clients don’t need us to take on whole projects, but are looking for a specific person with a specific skill set. Gretchen has spent years cultivating relationships with incredible and highly successful independent learning consultants. She is happy to work with clients to leverage her network and support you in getting your projects over the finish line with the right people at the right time.
