    Course Description

    The training process in eight easy steps:

    1. Decide which blocks of Management best fit the needs of your managers

    The content of The Building Blocks of Management training program is the decision of the client. Simply put together the building blocks that you consider most valuable. Each block can be conducted in an hour or a day depending on your specific needs. You decide how many blocks of management you would like to fit into each day.

    1. Pre-program exercises

    Participants are provided with relevant articles and case studies two weeks prior to the program commencing. Discussions during the training program will relate to these topics.

    1. Delivery of training program

    Delivery of The Building Blocks of Management training program.

    1. Executive summary management briefing

    Following the training program, the trainer will be available to provide a summary of key learning outcomes to participants’ managers.

    1. Addendum learning journal

    A learning journal will accompany every workbook. Participants will be encouraged to make note of creative solutions to address relevant work issues.

    1. One-to-one coaching

    Approximately three to four weeks after the program, a business coach will contact each participant to monitor their progress and provide some specific ideas to address any issues.

    1. Measuring the results – Retention, Application, Impact, Training/learning index (RAIT™)

    RAIT is a valid and reliable learning assessment tool which produces a return on your investment, on any training program delivered. Developed by Dr Stanley Rodski, a neuropsychologist, this measurement system enables identification of training which exceeds, meets or falls short of learning expectations.

    1. Smart additional learning

    Individuals learn in different ways. An additional learning tool will be sent to each participant after the training program. All tools are complimentary and will be pre-approved by your learning team. Tools are selected that are likely to create a behavioural change in each participant, for example, articles of interest and reference materials such as Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’.

    Measurement Measuring training has never been easy and measuring learning even more difficult. How do you know if the training you are providing is increasing learning and adding value to your organisation? The Building Blocks of Management training program is measured by Dr Stan Rodski, Chief Psychologist at the Melbourne Institute of Neuropsychological Diagnostics (MIND). Objective evidence regarding learning, training impact and business outcomes is gathered by Dr Rodski using proven psychometric techniques and measures, developed by MIND over the last 10 years. These include:

    • Pre and post measurement of the training program and learning outcomes.
    • Fully benchmarked data for comparative and improvement processes. Comparative data includes high profile leadership programs from around the world including USA and UK.
    • When/if required, behavioural interviews by MIND measurement psychologists to verify, clarify and expand on the data collected, from assessments with participants.

    A clear and detailed report will be provided. This easily understandable report establishes the impact of the training, learning and retention which has taken place. Trend analysis, time comparisons and benchmarking are all provided within 24 hours of evaluation.
