Enhance Course Structure
Enhance the design and structure of your training so that your learners are gaining more confidence through real competence, without needing more time or resources.
Improve Coaching Behaviours
Upgrade your coaching skills by asking better questions and giving more effective feedback. Engage more with the learners and get better results.
Deliver More Effective Conflict Training.
Leveraging modern research into coaching and learning you can make the changes needed to get the very best results from training delivery in your Conflict, Personal Safety and Restraint programmes. Rigorous approaches by trainer/advisors in violence management are increasingly required, and this methodology can supercharge your courses, without changing the system of tactics you teach.
Maximise Training Effectiveness
Dramatically Improve Learner Engagement.
What does the learner need to know, understand, and do? Who is the person standing in front of me? What coaching behavior helps me develop that in them? And then, what type of practice environment gives me the environment that I need to develop that learner?
Implement Efficient Whole-Task Practice.
Practice needs to become a progression – an increasingly complex version of the whole. You’re looking to learn through the practice. You want your learners to recognize cues, and things that are happening as the scenario unfolds, so learning through it.
Safely Incorporate Scenario Training.
Putting learners under pressure, but pressure comes in different ways. Pressure could be peer observation. Pressure could be against the clock. Pressure could be with a camera on you. There’s a whole range of creating pressure that isn’t full-blooded fighting, essentially.
