One Size Doesn’t Fit
Our focus on customization isn’t an add-on feature of our programming, it is central to its effectiveness. The work you do is distinct, as are the people you work with, so your training should reflect that!
Without customization, soft skills training can often feel tacked on. Even if your curriculum is sound, it may not feel relevant to the day to day needs of the learners, and that makes sense!
Soft skills training is not a one-size-fits-all subject. A pre-designed lesson plan just will not be right for everybody, which can make it feel like a waste of time and resources.
So, what do you do?
Hone in on your learners needs and address them.
This focused approach can be of great benefit to your team in the long run. Soft skills issues can be subtle, and may avoid notice until they spiral into something bigger. A major fallout with a client, a breakdown in team cohesion, or workplace burnout often begin as small, easily missable decisions and habits that escalate over time. A detail oriented training program can target these and provide alternatives well in advance, and give your team new tools to use going forward.
Think of it like a leaky rowboat. When you start to sink you have a wealth of options to not go all mini-Titanic. You could do a seminar on how to row faster. You could abandon the poor boat and learn to swim. You could grab a bucket and bail.
Or, try the (ix)plore Lab solution. Learn how to patch a leak and build a better boat. In the long run, you’ll get a lot more nautical mileage and won’t be nearly as soggy.
