Down to earth solutions that let your training soar
The road to dull is paved with good intentions. A lot of training has perfectly well designed content, which is equally perfectly dull. How many training courses have you sat through as your imagination soars out of the window, mercifully free of the well-intentioned, but badly structured, poorly presented or irrelevant content?
Most underwhelming training just needs a little careful thought, an injection of imagination and buckets of enthusiasm.
A client – a global energy company – needed to make sure that their Eastern European operations knew and followed local laws on cartels, price-fixing and bribes. To achieve this they had a comprehensive but rather dry set of workshops.
We talked through the programme with people who had just joined the company as well as long-serving employees.
We used what we learned to restructure the programme to include a series of progressively challenging role plays which had a different outcome depending on the response from the participants.
With relevant feedback and on the spot coaching, they had the chance to test new ways of behaving. It gave them the experience of seeing what worked and what didn’t. This was a great deal more effective than the dry theory they had been given before. The result was they had new ways of dealing with long-standing problems.
