This session is about assessing the overall impact of the training.
Each person writes a 3-minute-long speech that covers their experiences of trying out the tools of Business Partnering in real life scenarios.
On the Zoom Workshop one person gives their prepared 3-minute speech (3MT). The group discusses the speech and makes comments and asks questions of the presenter. The presenter may ask for help or guidance from the group and can also (if they wish) ask questions about the tools and techniques.
We continue with this process (Speech + Discussion) until everyone has had a turn to present and has been given feedback.
This programme is delivered in a remote format.
Where appropriate, we conduct interviews and facilitate focus groups to gather information with which to write bespoke case studies that precisely reflect the culture and work environment of the participants.
Feedback is based upon peer reviews using Boulden Assessment Checklists. Completing the Boulden Assessment Checklists is not only valuable to the people involved in a given case study,it also helps those completing them to gain an in-depth understanding of skills used by outstanding Business Partners.
The workshop can be followed by a 3/4-month-long group coaching activity (using the Action Learning Philosophy). This involves delegates trying out the skills from the workshop in real life situations and getting support and guidance from their peers and the consultant as they do so. If this option is selected there is a Closure Workshop at the end of the coaching phase where delegates present how they have applied the techniques learned on the course into their daily work routine (using the Most Significant Change methodology).
All of our workshops can be delivered as Remote Training via e-learning modules plus Zoom based virtual workshops. Please see our Virtual Training page for more information.
