Contextualisation
Our programme is bespoke for each client. Through discovery conversations prior to the training, we come to understand an organisation‘s culture, language, and values so that we can represent the mission and message of its leaders. This context is then embedded into the teamwork experiences and facilitated discussions, as well as reinforced when creating transfer action plans for bringing lessons learned in the programme back to the workplace.
