At LKS Quaero, we are zealots for productive training. Do you hate sitting through boring training? So do we. We’d like to share some of the principles we use in our training because they can also be applied to lots of activities you do with people in your organisation.
- Incorporate your policies, procedures, and processes into the training material so that the participants work with the relevant material in a learning and development environment. This will help them to connect theory with practice back in the workplace
- Require participants to make demonstrable positive changes to their own leadership practice, their teams, and the organisation. The assessment task reflection pieces and assessment days require participants to reflect on their actions, their learning, and the results
- Where substantial training work has already been undertaken, build on this work to provide meaningful, adaptive support that does not reinvent the wheel
- Create an enjoyable yet challenging learning experience for all participants. Utilising action learning, adult learning principles, and various learning styles, participant experiences include case studies, role plays, reflection, interactive simulations, and participant presentations to foster learning that lasts
