Training Approach

  • Initial contact and Enquiry

    Give us a call or use the contact button on our website to get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you and find out how we can best support you.

  • Understanding your goals, exchange of ideas

    Your input is essential for us. In an initial dialogue we ask quite a few questions to find out what is important to you. What are the pain points? What should change? What should be different? What vision do you have for the future?

    Understanding your goals, exchange of ideas

  • Tailormade Proposal / Concept

    Based on your goals and needs, we put our heads together and develop a concept that works best for you. Alignment with you is critical. Depending on the level of detail you need, we will discuss our proposal and make sure it addresses your needs. We have training designs, interventions and material which have been tested and proven in numerous organizational development measures around the world and strive to find the perfect match to your needs. It is our passion to develop trainings, workshops and events which touch the heart and activate the brain. We value handouts and training material, which is qualitative, creative, and multi-facetted.

    Depending on the content and the desired change, we offer a selection of licensed tools which can also be integrated into your event. In such cases, we discuss options and offer transparency on pricing and fees which are attached to such options.

  • In some cases, interviews with participants

    Depending on the change desired, we often conduct interviews with participants during the preparation phase. This is, for example, recommended in preparation for team workshops where there are lurking conflicts or different goals that clash with each other. We collect as much information as possible up front and want each person to know that their opinion counts and that they are valued and heard.

  • Final concept and detailed planning

    We put together a detailed concept / measures and cross-check strategy and content with you at the level of detail you desire. We only send out a rough agenda to participants with time slots and general content before an event as this provides us more agility to answer questions and address unplanned content that may pop up in a training or team event.

  • Implementation: Online

    We offer a wide selection of our trainings online and call these trainings “blended learning”.  In these virtual training sessions, we blend online with our traditional face-to-face events. About a week before the event, all participants receive high quality training material per post, which allows them to take notes and record their thoughts while learning. This also helps us also reduce power point slides to an absolute bare minimum in these trainings. We prefer to work live with flipcharts and other material when conducted these blended learning sessions. Just like in our face-to-face events, blended learning sessions are designed to meet all learning preferences and involve, engage and motivate our learners. We’ll be happy to send you a digital catalogue with detail about our offers if you would like to know more.

    Implementation: Online

  • Implementation: Face-to-Face

    The heart of all our training design is based on accelerated learning and positive psychology.

    Accelerated learning means training designs which address all learning preferences.

    All our events are interactive. They involve and engage the participants. There is no sitting around, no staring at slides. We place value on having fun and meeting people where they are in their development and taking it from there.

    Positive psychology is based on the premise “other people matter”. Every single person we work with is valuable and appreciated. No one is more or less important than anyone else. This approach lays the foundation for psychological safety and ensures that everyone has a voice and that his or her voice is heard and valued.

    When we deal with conflicts in teams, for example, we know that the roots of most conflicts are that someone does not feel valued, understood, or respected. We help teams to discuss value systems and needs. We help teams heal the hurts of the past and help them move forward together as one team.

    Every single trainer has their unique personality and yet we all have at least one thing in common: we love what we do. We are trainers, coaches, and speakers because this job is our calling. We are passionate about developing people and helping companies grow. We are all grateful for the trust our clients place in us and for the chance to do what we love doing – whether it is virtual or face-to-face.

  • Follow-Up with You

    After trainings, workshops, project work, etc are carried out, we want to collect feedback from you and find out if further support is needed. Were your needs met? What went well? What can we do better next time? Are there questions or do you need any material or information from us? We place value on open and honest communication and are grateful for the feedback you provide us.

    Follow-Up with You

  • If desired: Coaching or learning assignments, learning groups after a training

    Depending on the measures carried out, it is often helpful to provide participants with a task that encourages them to implement their learnings or the tools provided in their daily lives. This is common when, for example, a training or seminar is made up of several modules as in a Leadership Development Program. Here we have handouts and tasks that help anchor the learning and accompany the transfer to daily life.

  • Sustainable change

    Our #1 priority is positive, sustainable change. The material, models, tools, and measures we have used should be implemented successfully in the lives of our participants. It is important for us that participants grasp the necessity of taking responsibility for the changes they want to have in their lives, be it personal or professional. It is also critical that they understand that a learning curve is involved. It won’t be perfect, and there may be setbacks. And the more they try, the better they will get.
