Our Learning Style
The delivery style of our workshops reflects the way in which people learn. We use a variety of accelerated learning techniques, which really appeal to people and ensure they engage well and enjoy their experience with us.
We only use PowerPoint slides where it will enhance the learning process, display a set of instructions or for modelling. We prefer to use rich visual to aid the retention of information.
We like to work in an open environment, without tables or a formal setting. Our aim is to facilitate free flowing movement and activity, as the subject requires. In a typical learning environment we will be using whiteboards colour, music and imagery to offer a creative and vibrant learning experience.
We regularly run learning programmes that use one or more of the following scenarios:
We have run many facilitation workshops focused on specific business, performance or behavioural change. These have covered everything from Inspirational Leadership and Emotional Intelligence through Performance Management to specific Problem Solving, Teambuilding, Customer Service and Sales and Business Development.
Mini-Workshops and Seminars
These have varied from half hour sessions, through two, three and four hour sessions to half day seminars and have varied from small group meetings to company wide workshops or presentations.
Interactive and live online seminars on a variety of topics have been run for a major Blue Chip client. These seminars have been stored on their intranet and are regularly referred to by employees at all levels.
Skills Development Workshops
We offer a wide range of traditional skills development training courses covering standard material at one end of the spectrum, to bespoke workshops that focus on, develop and measure specific competences. The mix varies with pre-course work, design of specific case studies, role-play, video recording and the use of actors, where appropriate.
One to One Coaching
Many coaching sessions have been run mostly at executive level covering a wide range of leadership, change, performance, behavioural and development objectives.
Once a development programme is completed there is sometimes a need for ongoing support for managers or directors. Remote Coaching by our Professional Coaches using telephone appointments allows us to continue the support. Remote Coaching is a time efficient and cost effective support to follow up change and development initiatives.
We have a resource library of over 1700 titles and can design bespoke subjects. These cover soft skills, business skills and IT topics. In addition our unique platform offers, Full client rebranding, online performance management, appraisals, 360-degree feedback, personal training planners, automated compliance training and testing.
We recognise that a combination of learning methods can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of development of staff. The most common request is for online learning prior to practical workshops for honing skills or discussing application of that learning.
