    METHODOLOGY OF TRAINING

    The foundation of our training is anchored in activity-based experiential learning. Upon completion of this workshop, delegates will complete an action learning plan identifying which concepts from the workshop to apply back at work. All video recordings will also be sent to the delegates for their own review and self-awareness. The methodology in this workshop takes into consideration different learning and communication styles, and more importantly language and cultural differences. It is through active participation that the adoption and application of theory is expedited.

    Our training team pays careful attention to planning and designing effective instructional methods essential for the transfer of knowledge. It is the creative skill of our management trainers and consultants that reveal untapped skills of the delegates through:

      • Group discussion
      • Individual and syndicate activities
      • Individual and group tasks
      • Case studies
      • Role plays
      • Audio and video evaluation
      • Action planning
      • Experiential learning games
      • Presentations
      • Assessments
