Providing Inclusive Leadership & Human Capital Solutions

Most organizational training classes use the traditional 'death' by overhead approach to training which involves participants observing slides, taking notes and having a limited number of times they actually interact with each other and the course facilitator.  We have included options for learning and development that include the use of 'learning maps' to convey the intended skill and behavioral changes.

Through the use of learning maps we are able to effectively transfer the knowledge and skills needed to succeed.  A ‘learning map’ is a graphic representation of the information to be taught in a workshop.  It is designed to allow the participants to interact in a consistent and structured method that enhances the effective assimilation of the designed learning points.  The learning map displays major learning concepts on a two dimensional grid / map that allows participants to better understand the intended learning and how to apply it to their specific situations through discussions and interactions with peers.

The example below dealt with three key learning points; respect, inclusion and teamwork. This foundational course provides a clear understanding of the importance of workplace respect and allows the participants to begin to develop their own understanding of how people feel disrespected by comments and behaviors in the workplace. This class also lays the foundations for the teaming sessions that follow where employees specifically identify the ‘Standards of Behavior’ for their work group and/or organization. The core topics in the baseline class was the understanding of the impact of derailing behaviors on the ability of the organization to reach its stated business goals.  Statistics, business case issues and the link to the leadership's strategic goals were critical steps in creating ownership and buy-in.Type your paragraph here.

Workplace Respect


Creating an organizational culture where people are treated with dignity and respect should be a minimum of what people can expect when they come to work everyday.  Unfortunately, for many employees that goal is a dream that they have yet to encounter at their place of business.  Developing an accountable culture of respect can be accomplished with a focused effort, customized programs and targeted policies that clearly define behavioral expectations.

Workplaces are becoming increasing more diverse; with people from multiple generations, cultures, regions of the world and different perspectives and outlooks.  These differences are important for organizational success and different approaches and input.  They also can lead to behaviors that are intended to be appropriate yet are perceived as being disrespectful.  Creating a baseline of understanding and behavioral guidelines is a requirement to eliminate the inappropriate ways people may act or speak with coworkers, managers and/or employees.  


Some studies have explored the best ways to increase the level of retention from things we have been taught.  The results have indicated the following factors are part of why simply going through training with PowerPoint may not be the most effective way to retain what we are taught.
