About the OPEN Programme
At its core, a successful training programme helps delegates to make behavioural changes, and embed and apply their learnings in a work-based context.
We have built this programme to provide the most impactful learning for delegates by combining a focus on behaviour and experiential modules. As experts in behaviour, we understand that making behavioural change isn’t easy, but it’s also critical to a delegate’s future success. Throughout the programme we work with delegates to increase their behavioural awareness; it’s only by recognising your current behavioural patterns that you can identify areas for change or development.
Our use of experiential modules (as opposed to classroom-based learning) enables delegates to experience ‘learning in action’. This provides a safe environment so delegates have the opportunity to stretch themselves in real-world scenarios, whilst also ensuring there isn’t an impact on your business. Ultimately, they are designed to be challenging, exciting, memorable and results-driven. Combining a focus on behaviour with experiential modules provides delegates with clear examples of their behaviour in scenarios that are simulated to reflect real work situations, for example a pressurised situation. The feedback provided by our trainers and their peers will provide delegates with career-defining insights into their strengths and development areas.
The programme will take place over the course of 12-15 months, and consists of an induction session, 4 experiential modules, and on-going coaching and support visits. Alongside the experiential modules, we also use business coaching, work-based learning and real-world projects to fast-track delegates’ development back in your business.
