We are offering an exciting range of workshops to help you more effectively work with people and projects.

I hear you asking “Why do you call yourselves High Impact Training?”.

Each workshop will be hand-crafted to meet the specific needs of the participants, based on the results of a pre-workshop survey. We’ll list the specific topics that will be covered in the two-day workshop, and ask you to rate your existing knowledge and confidence for each. We’ll then collate that and provide the results to the learning facilitator beforehand. They will then design the workshop to best meet the needs of your group and spend more time on the items you want to learn about.

The workshops will be lively and engaging. We won’t go over the top and use touchy-feely activities just for the sake of it. Instead, purposeful activities will help you build the knowledge and confidence you need for each topic. There will be a good balance between theory and practice – so you’ll not only know what to do but why.

Before the workshop concludes, you’ll create an action learning plan outlining how you will apply your new learning in your workplace. You’ll share that with the group and they can suggest ideas and resources that might be helpful.

You then return to your workplace and we’ll provide support to you for 60 days afterwards, to ensure you apply and embed your new learning. We will re-engage with you at both 30 days and 60 days so you can tell us how you are going with implementing your plan.

Plus when you register, we’ll ask you for the contact details of your manager (who presumably is providing the funds for your professional development). We’ll contact them before the workshop and encourage them to chat with you about the activity and outline how they will support you when you return to the workplace. That will get them thinking about making space in your work schedule to allow you to apply your new learning in the first 30 days. We’ll prompt them to think about any other resources you might need too, so they can get the greatest return on the investment they are making. If you are self-employed, then we will remind you to allocate time and resources for implementing your learning.

This combination of factors will help ensure that these are indeed high impact training events.
