If employees feel that the training is responsive to requests from them or from others like them, it will be well received.
Decades of our research and interactions with employees and companies have taught us what people care about. Our training, which combines high production value videos for e-learning with in-person participatory practice sessions, respects the intelligence of your employees. People have more capacity in them than is often expressed, due to problems that hamper them. They are yearning for solutions.
Your message will be along these lines: “Some of your fellow workers have expressed an interest in training on a number of important topics and skills. We listened. We recruited the country’s top coaches to put together programs for us. The e-learning component is filmed by a director who has worked for The Jon Stewart Show, for ESPN, Fox News, ABC, CBS and NBC. The coaches will also, “deputize internal champions” volunteers from among us, to be trained to lead live practices on the various topics. Original, new ideas. No boring PowerPoints!”
Coming Soon! When major motion picture studios put out a film, they put out advance publicity. Trailers, notices, comments of praise from reviewers — these all help build excitement. It actually enhances the audience’s experience.
We’ll provide you with materials for e-mail release, wall posters, Tweets… whatever will engage your audience.
It’s a Popular Movement from Within. We want there to be anticipation and advance discussion. At the same time, we will be deputizing an internal champion. That is someone from within your ranks who is a “go-to” person, a connector, who is trusted by their co-workers. They will have to have a real interest in the subject and wish to be a leader on it. So they will also generate advance publicity as they are being specially trained in advance of the company-wide e-learning.
We are all about this being 100% authentic and coming from within your company or institution.
“I Hear this is Different.” From seeing screenshots, reading reviews, and hearing from the champion, the employees will know in advance that this will not be like other training. Our original work digs deeper than the stock phrases and easy formulas that cause employees to roll their eyes. People care about their safety, their self-respect, their ability to communicate with other and be heard. They deeply want to learn how to reduce stress, increase success and have more control of their lives.
