Our Perspective on DE+I Training:
- We think about the difference between knowledge and skills. We focus on less telling, more doing, with an emphasis on practical application of learned knowledge and skills.
- We treat the learners as consumers on a journey, that starts from the will/need to learn a new skill to the application and mastery of the skill.
- We curate the experience and inject the right stimulus at the right time to ensure lessons are reinforced and skills applied. This allows learners to come to the “aha” moments and draw their own conclusions.
