Realistic, Relevant and Useful – Our Approach to Training
Our programs are designed to be thought provoking, engaging and - most importantly - give you new tools and information that you can take back and use immediately in your workplace.
We know our stuff! We have over 20 years’ experience in designing successful workshops that focus on helping Leaders and Managers develop their own skill set as they move up in their careers as organisational Leaders.
Learning should be entertaining and thought provoking. Very few things are worse than a boring training session, so we design our workshops to incorporate lots of real-world examples and stories.
We don't hate role plays – but we know they aren't for everyone.
We won't make you do role playing. During a training session we will workshop scenarios, discuss approaches, argue points or use live issues participants are facing....but we don't include force role playing as part of our planning.
Why? Because, a forced role play feels unreal and - let's be honest - not at all like the reality of the situation you are facing back in the office. People who are unwillingly subjected to role playing often remember very little from the experience except the stress they felt during the role play. It can also have the unfortunate side effect of making people reluctant to take their ideas or learning back into the workplace.
We use lots of different learning methods to ensure you can test your ideas and new knowledge without amping up the stress.
'But what if I love a role play?'
If you love a role play, we will happily use your enthusiasm to help the rest of the group gain even further insights into a subject. A robust role play is a valuable learning tool for both the participant and observers.
