Free the prisoners
Workplace training has earned a bad rap because it’s boring, mandated, outdated, time consuming, or all of the above. Participants are more distracted than ever before, yet organizations rely on the same old “death by PowerPoint” and boring handouts they’ve always used. When it comes to delivering content in a creative, interesting, and engaging way, trainers are simply at a loss.
Make your training stick
Our participant-centered approach will work for you because it focuses on the needs of learners. We understand that learners’ attention spans are short so we routinely capture their interests. Even television directors understand this challenge, and they change camera angles every six seconds to keep viewers hooked.
Your Boot Camp experience will show you practical, easy ways to involve participants more in their own learning. As participants take ownership of their learning, they remember more of what’s taught and apply what they learn back on the job. Now that you know why our method works, come and experience how it works.
Training made engaging…and fun!
Catch dozens of our Creative Training Techniques in action as our expert trainers model them for you. Learn expert strategies for dealing with difficult participants, how to cut your design time in half, and how to help people remember twice as much of what’s taught.
Whether you’ve been training for days or decades, Boot Camp is guaranteed to take your training from upside-down to right-side up. Choose between the standard two-day or our enhanced three-day course.
