During Initiation, we will meet to discuss your employee training goals for the session. Typical questions during this meeting include:
After this discussion, we will finalize pricing information and provide options so you can select a level of effort that is within your budget. The initiation process is free of charge. You only start paying once you agree on a level of effort and decide to proceed.
After the initial discussion, our team organizes a detailed content outline that explains the content, training workshops, and reference materials for the entire session. We then meet with you to review the outline and to gather specific information that will help us tailor examples and activities throughout the session. After this meeting, we begin to develop training courses including slides and the participant companion for your course.
This is where your training course begins to come alive. After the customization process, we send you our draft slides and participant companion for your review. Specifically, we are interested in ensuring that the examples, in-class exercises, and take-away resources are perfectly suited for your employee training and development needs. After you have some time to review, we will meet with you to discuss any last pieces of feedback that you would like incorporated into your course.
It's go time! Your course is now ready to be released to your workforce. Your exceptional corporate trainer is versed in the core skills that lead to enduring learning experiences: group dynamics, adult learning theory, oratory skills, and real-life experience. More than the classroom experience itself, we can also deliver longer-term performance support such as Reinforcement Toolkits that make it easy for your leadership to hone and maintain the skills people learn during their classroom experience.
We don't believe in "train and pray." We want to build enduring learning experiences, which means gathering meaningful evaluation data to show the impact of this effort. At a minimum, this includes thoughtful end-of-course evaluations gathered electronically. We can also do more comprehensive evaluation to understand the longer-term impacts of your staff development training effort on the organization with recommendations for how to make sure the learning sticks.
