Since 1984, by conviction as much as a desire not to lose focus, Kreno Consulting has chosen to concentrate only on personalised training and on the conception and organisation of intra-company training sessions.
Effective training means bringing together 4 commitments for efficient instructional design.
The 4 elements of auditing
1 –The company, the team, the context
2 –The aim of training, the knowledge or skills expected
3 – The goals of developing skills
4 – Appreciation criteria and current measurements
4 principles for organising sessions
1- Action: placing participants in an active situation, solving problems, reacting, finding solutions, imagining
2 - Alternating: sub-groups, pairs, full group. Presentations, exercises, games, U-shape tables, tables in a circle, no table, standing up, etc.
3 – Role-playing: trying out new methods.
4 - Games: puzzles, quizzes, ice-breakers, Excellence, playing ball to let yourself go, reduce inhibitions and experiment more freely.
4 tools to convince
1 - Meaning: vital for appropriating content. Makes long-term memorisation and the progression of beliefs easier.
2 - Summarising: the participants should be asked to do this regularly. It allows them to sort and prioritise information.
3 - Formalising: using the visual or physical medium of whatever needs to be learned: pocket maps, books, graphs, objects, etc.
4 - Realisation: ask the participants to express what they have learned in words.
4 driving forces for change
1 - Prior communication: Inform and set staff to work to raise motivation. Involve the management.
2 – Action plan: Get participants to see themselves in action. Apply SMART goals and commitments.
3 – Downstream evaluation: Measure changes via the skills radar. Get line managers to follow up on actions.
4 - Feedback: Feedback helps transform knowledge into skills. Overcomes resistance.
THE CONSULTANT AS RESOURCE
The coordinator is in the position of a consultant rather than a teacher. He represents a “resource” rather than “someone who knows”, aiming to guide participants in their development and lead them to success.
