All of Our Action-Planning Programs are Designed to Build Capability
- Reseach shows that people will remember only about 20% of what they learn at a training seminar just three weeks later. That means they forget an incredible 80%!
We think, and our clients agree, that seminars are a waste of your money.
- However, the research also demonstrated that a program in which people were able to apply what they learned immediately, the results were just the opposite: They retained 80% of what they learned three weeks later!
Therefore, we redesigned all of our approaches. We no longer will do a “training seminar.” Now every program is based on Capability Building. Here’s how it works:
- Concepts: Most management personnel already either know the concept or have heard about it. So we don’t spend much time on them.
- Best Practices: Only those Concepts that can be translated into a Best Practice are worthy of an executive’s attention. Therefore, we are sure to provide clear and concise Best Practices.
- Tool Kits: Every Best Practice, to be applicable, should have a Tool Kit to make it work in the real world. Tool Kits are usually something simple, like a framework, a checklist, a set of questions, or set of sequential action steps.
- Application: Every cluster of Best Practices, within minutes of presentation, is brought to a point of Application to a real life situation your organization is grappling with now. That’s why we encourage people to attend in teams.
