Training Methodology | Designed with the brain in mind


Learning by doing works, (sit-and-listen doesn't). We'll present a tool, demo how to use it and then get you to 'take-the-wheel'.

No Half Haircuts

Squeezing our bigger trainings into half-the-time, is a little like giving someone half a haircut. We just wouldn't do it! Quality comes first.

Layered Training

Each training module is layered into other modules giving you a package of tools that embed key leadership principles.

Brain-Based Training

Tools and skill-sets trained are partnered with an understanding of the brain, giving deeper insights without an academic overload.

Client Centred

These trainings are about you not a textbook,  your own experiences help you make sense of the content.

No One Gets Lost

Our trainings have a max. of 14 people, so no one gets lost in the crowd and everyone gets the space to engage.

Visual Workbooks

Our workbooks are styled on the slides you'll see as the training unfolds. This makes for easier referencing and 'glazed-eye' prevention.

Business End

The tools and skills we train have a business-end... i.e. they lead into clear actions, owners and timeframes so that things get done.

Embedding Strategies

It's not over when the training ends, we've added embedding strategies to help people leap in to action and apply their learning.

... a REAL understanding of how the brain 'wires' and people develop ...
