Changescope launches public programme of “High Impact Learning” events incorporating 90-day action plans

… More organisations to access extended learning pathway that delivers return on investment …

Changescope, the bespoke coaching, mentoring and training company, today announced the launch of a programme of High Impact Learning events to help individuals and organisations to improve effectiveness and boost performance. The learning events include pre-training learning content, an intensive workshop on how to apply the training in the workplace and guidance to help each participant implement their post-training action plan.

Each High Impact Learning event is based upon Changescope’s extended learning pathway model, which aims to deliver a better return on investment by embedding learning and behaviours after the training through a 90-day specific, measurable action plan and mentoring programme. The model and learning content have proven to be highly successful in a number of the UK’s leading organisations; this new programme of events makes the training available to a wider range of public and private sector organisations.

Changescope’s High Impact Learning programme offers 12 different events, covering Leadership, Personal and Team Development, Project Management and E-Learning. The events are delivered in an active-learning, workshop format for up to 12 people and are targeted at individuals who have a leadership or management role in any functional area, such as Operations, Sales, Marketing, IT, Project Management and Finance. The key differentiators include:

  • Format: participants are expected to undertake preparatory work in advance of the training, attend the intensive workshop with specific objectives in mind, set a 90-day action plan, and work with a mentor who will challenge them to reach those objectives
  • Topic: the courses are designed to address specific gaps in awareness or behaviours that impede personal and organisational success, such as “Commercial Awareness” and “Delivering Exceptional Service”, as well as “Building a High Performing Team” and “Project Leadership”
  • Focus: the focus of each event is delivering return on investment. This is achieved through competency-based action learning, delivered by an experienced facilitator and linked directly to the participant’s functional responsibilities and business operations
  • Mentoring: the events emphasize the importance of networking and mentoring in delivering change; each participant is expected to participate in networking groups and to have a coach or mentor within their own organisation or to use Changescope’s mentoring service to verify behavior change.

Eddie Kilkelly, Managing Director at Changescope says, “We developed the High Impact Learning programme to address two specific problems. First, to deliver practical, results-focused training that actually delivers a proven return on investment and secondly, to make highly effective training more easily available – and easier to implement – for busy leaders and managers who find it difficult to take time out of the office. The return on investment in traditional training courses is generally very low because the focus is on learning information rather than changing behavior. Research by various organisations consistently finds that up to 87 percent of new skills are lost within a month. The magic that transforms learning into improved performance only happens when learners apply what they have learned, which is why our events are so action-orientated. ”

The Changescope High Impact training programmes are based upon the 70/20/10 rule; 10 percent of the learning comes from the workshop or preparatory work; 20 percent comes from feedback and coaching within the workshop and in the workplace and 70 percent from practically applying the learning in the workplace. This means the events are intensive but short – between one and three days – so they are accessible to busy managers. Workshop participants are expected to be active learners and facilitate their co-participants in order to reinforce the learning. The learning content is concise and focused on improving each individual’s performance in their specific organisation.

Kilkelly adds, “Over the years, we have seen clear evidence that this highly interactive and engaging format is very successful in delivering a return on investment. We are delighted that our new programme of public events will enable more organisations to gain access to high level training which translates into tangible results within their organisation.”

Changescope High Impact Learning events are facilitated by highly experienced leaders from a range of industry sectors and areas of expertise, including Finance, Media, Consulting and the Public Sector.
