Half Day: Up to 3 hours of training. Typically there is one or two, short breakout sessions to practice skills. A short training provides enough time to deliver the important mechanics to achieve targeted goals. A three-week practice program will be provided.
Full Day Training: Up to six hours. Longer breakout sessions are provided with more direct hands on coaching. A longer training provides the opportunity to explore additional areas other than the basic skills and have advanced lessons. Also time is allowed for the group to deliver presentations/role play scenarios and received feedback. A three week practice program is provided.
Most Popular! Split Training: Two sessions that are up to three hours in length scheduled between one or two weeks to practice skills. This is our most popular training as companies like the option of two shorter sessions with the opportunity to practice skills. The second session typically is more advanced since participants had time to learn new skills. Also time is available for the group to deliver presentations/role play scenarios and receive feedback.
Level 1 Intensive Small Group Training: This program is designed for up to 8 participants. Small group training allows time for the participants to receive hands-on direct coaching to identify skilled behaviors and behaviors that are interfering with the message. There is opportunity for every individual to received direct feedback.
Level 2: Pairs Training: This program is designed for 9-15 participants. This program places participants in pairs of three-four people to practice skills during breakout sessions. Typically when an ideal or non-ideal behavior is observed the entire group is alerted and that moment is discussed or demonstrated. Short presentations or role play can be performed and the instructor and group identify strengths, improvements and areas for more practice.
Level 3: Large Group Class Training: This program is designed for 16-50 people. Given the size, instruction is a PowerPoint demonstration. Opportunity is provided for breakout sessions.
