People Performance Profit

Why is our methodology so effective at delivering tangible results ?

Learning by 'doing' to ensure consistent & long-term impact...

For training to truly impact performance it must instill knowledge that can be applied effectively in real-life situations with consistent and long-term success. By stretching not only the understanding of theory, but the ability to apply it in both the training room and the workplace, our approach increases the likelihood of the skill becoming an intrinsic strength or characteristic of the participant.

Highly interactive delivery. Skills development via application, review and coaching...

Whilst the 'knowledge' is readily accessible, true understanding comes from arriving at conclusions based upon first-hand experience and experimentation. Our highly interactive delivery style 'draws' out understanding by lacing new insights into the participants existing perspectives and skill maturity.

Concepts are not just presented, but discussed, debated, applied, reviewed and adapted to instill a deeper real-life understanding and context to the individuals personal and professional circumstances.

Focus on People, Process and Personal skill sets creates powerful workplace context...

Our ultimate aim is to improve business results so we've approached each skill area from the three perspectives that add the greatest focus to delivering improved performance in the workplace.

'Time-spaced' format improves learning absorption, retention and application...

Traditional 'immersive' training formats require participants to maintain prolonged focus and attention, which is not a natural strength for most people. We break sessions up into smaller 'bite-sized' units of learning that better engage the natural human attention span of 3-4 hours.

These shorter sessions are then distributed across a longer time period (typically 1-2 weeks apart) so each participant gets to experiment immediately with their newfound insights in the context of their own personal and professional lives. At subsequent sessions success (and failure) can then be shared, reviewed and skills adapted accordingly, creating a very effective 'cycle' of learning, application and improvement.

Focus on behavioural & attitudinal change to ensure longer-term results...

Knowledge diminishes with time unless continually exercised and refreshed, so simply arming participants with a toolkit of insights & skills is too reliant upon them being disciplined in subsequent 'sharpening' & 'maintenance'.

Our focus upon enhancing the way participants choose to think and behave, nurtures a 'way of being' that permeates their intrinsic skills and personal characteristics.

Once these 'habits' are formed they become an unconscious competence that increases the longevity of skills improvement.
