This workshop is for you if:

You want your employees to be more effective at their jobs.
You and your employees spend valuable organizational resources (effort, time and money) on training but you don’t believe you are getting the return you need from this investment.
You want to beat this statistic: only 10-15% of employees apply what they learn from training to their day-to-day work, a loss in the U.S. of roughly $136 billion per year.
You want to create a culture of learning in your organization for the purpose of individual and organizational performance improvement.

We will show you how to use “The 5As Framework.” The 5As Framework is an easy-to-remember aid for ensuring that any learning intervention, whether classroom training, e-learning, coaching and mentoring, self-directed study, or internships results in employees applying what they have learned. 

This is the foundation for creating and sustaining a learning culture.

Five key organizational factors determine whether employee training and development programs contribute to achieving positive outcomes for the business and develop employees to their fullest. 

These factors make up the 5As Framework:

1. Alignment of learning with strategic goals.
2. Anticipation of learning and success.
3. Alliance of manager with employee for the purpose of learning.
4. Application of learning on the job.
5. Accountability for learning and performance improvement.

We will teach you and your team how to apply the Framework to get the results that you want from your training and development efforts. Using a real-life business problem and learning goals that already exist in your organization, we will help you ensure that learning is applied and performance is improved.

Our Unique Approach Ensures Learning and Application

Learning to be Great™ workshops are designed to address some of the most pressing needs of organizations today. The facilitators are senior consultants with experience in a wide range of organizations, from Fortune 500 companies to startups, from social service organizations to manufacturing firms. The goal of each workshop, regardless of specific topic, is singular in nature: to significantly improve the performance of each organization through a demonstrable application of learning by all workshop participants. 

U.S. companies spend in excess of 160 billion dollars annually on training and development programs, with less than 15% of participants applying that learning to their organizations (source: ATD). We want to help you ensure that your organization is not experiencing this kind of waste in your training and development budget. That is why we implement every one of our workshops using the 5As Framework. We not only offer the 5As approach as this stand-alone workshop to help you improve your training results, we believe in it so strongly that we apply it to every workshop we conduct. So, when you contract with us for a half-day or full-day workshop, you can expect results that will have a positive and lasting impact on your business.

Each workshop is delivered on-site, in either a four-hour block or eight-hour block, designed specifically to meet the needs of your participants.  Because your satisfaction is very important, if the experience does not meet your expectations, we will work closely with you until your expectations are met. To help ensure we deliver exactly what you need, every one of our workshops includes the following steps:

  1. Conduct a pre-meeting (online, telephone or in-person) to identify your needs and expectations for the workshop and to ensure the workshop content is relevant to real-life challenges you are currently facing.
  2. Assist you in preparing workshop participants for the learning experience.
  3. Deliver a workshop designed to meet your needs, including methods for aligning participants’ learning with organizational priorities and strategies.
  4. Provide guidance to support immediate application of learning.
  5. Recommend a plan for follow-up that will reinforce learning and help managers and learners be accountable for results.
  6. Conduct a follow-up session to help increase the probability that the learning is being implemented.
  7. Follow up with a small sample of workshop participants to measure impact.
