Achieve Lasting Behavior Change

This customizable turnkey program is delivered in short learning bursts rather than as a one-time training event. Our burst learning model uses five simple but extremely powerful steps:

Essential Steps in Burst Learning - Learn, Internalize, Apply, Follow-up, Repeat

Step 1 – Learn

Supervisors learn practical how-to skills from a short course. Each skill is explained step by step, making it easy to understand.

Step 2 – Internalize

Supervisors discuss, practice, and connect skills to their own workplace situations.

Step 3 – Apply

On the job, supervisors use personal action plans to apply their new skills to solve workplace challenges.

Step 4 – Follow-up

Follow-up tools hold supervisors accountable for applying their action plans back on the job.

Step 5 – Repeat

The process is repeated every two to four weeks until all core leadership skills are developed.

Our burst learning model is based on 20+ years of learning research and neuroscience. It follows core adult learning principles that drive behavior change, skill transfer, and retention.

How We Help Companies

Supervisors and managers are often promoted based on their job and technical skills, not leadership potential. If they aren’t properly trained on how to lead and manage their teams, morale, teamwork, and productivity can be damaged.

Develop Communication, Leadership, and Soft Skills

Companies often experience problems because supervisors need to improve skills like communication, conflict resolution, and accountability. Technical workers may have issues managing peers. Supervisors may struggle with making the transition from buddy to boss. Great employees, unfortunately, often become mediocre leaders.

Improve Existing Training for Supervisors and Managers

Companies often discover their old training programs no longer meet their current needs. Seminars, workshops, or classes at the community college often overwhelm supervisors with too much information. Many of these offerings are more motivational than educational.

Prepare Frontline Leaders

Companies may have excellent leadership programs for high-level leaders, but there’s no space or the content isn’t applicable for frontline leaders. They want a cost-effective solution to easily develop their frontline leaders.

Train Many Leaders Quickly

Companies need to improve skills quickly and often simultaneously at many sites. Leaders may be at multiple geographically dispersed locations. Many sites are running 24/7. Others may have a primary location where some employees work on site and the remaining workforce works remotely.

Improve Employee Engagement

Organizations understand the correlation between high-performing managers and high employee engagement. They understand a leading factor in turnover is the employee’s immediate supervisor.

Reduce Turnover

Turnover rates and their associated expenses are too high. Companies understand a leading factor in turnover is an employee’s manager. By developing leadership skills in managers, they improve employee engagement and reduce turnover.

Manage the Pains of Rapid Growth

Whether hiring or acquiring, the headcount is growing exponentially for many companies. Usually, employees are promoted quickly because of their hire date or technical competencies for the job they’re in—often before they are ready. Managers and employees experience rapid change on a daily basis.

Start a New Leadership Development Program

Companies that understand their employees are an asset take a proactive approach. They believe in and develop their supervisors and managers. As a result, their employees give more discretionary effort and maximize productivity for their leaders.
