Use of theories, models and frameworks to aid understanding of concepts for practical application in various situations at work.


Workshop delivery style is highly interactive and facilitative. We use a range of methodologies to increase the richness of the learning experience from group discussions, psychometrics, individual reflection, coaching and experiential exercises.


The content, processes and methodologies used in our workshops and programmes are designed to address the cognitive, emotional, behavioural aspects of learning to effect change.


Due to the deep nature of this program, the trainers work with the participants in a large group, and also in small groups to build trust and intimacy. Working in small groups enables them to receive support and feedback from their peers and the facilitators.
