All our training, coaching,
facilitation and process consulting interventions
are conducted in the English language. Their focus is
on global and cross-border communication effectiveness.
Based on a sound pedagogical foundation, these training
programs still are designed with a strong emphasis on
experiential learning. The adult learner brings considerable
skills and experiences into the training situation.
By building upon these foundations through role plays,
case studies, realistic team tasks, group discussions
and individual reflection the learner advances according
to her/his own needs, motivation and abilities. Where
appropriate, activities are videotaped and individual
feedback is given as the learner watches the training
performance. Videotape and other multimedia programs
are widely used to add intensity, variety and realism
to the programs.
The one to five day seminar or workshop format is commonly
used for business skills training. But it is not the
only structure employed. For highly specialized needs,
especially when senior management is involved, one-on-one
or small group coaching offers an intensive experience
focused on the precise requirements of the learner.
Actual teams, especially ones which are culturally
diverse, can often benefit from a process consulting
intervention. The trainer establishes an environment
where the actual work of the team can be done and interspersed
with evaluation sessions. Participants analyze how to
optimize their processes and receive objective feedback
from the consultant.
External facilitation or moderation is a technique
used more and more frequently by self-confident leaders
who seek the chance to provide a culturally and politically
neutral environment for their team meetings while affording
the opportunity for themselves as leaders to participate
fully and in total freedom from the demands of logistically
"running" the meeting.
We are pleased to offer this range of methodology to
