Employee Learning

Everyone has the capacity to learn and to change and can be engaged in a learning process of actively building his or her own knowledge, skills and values.

To be successful in the rapid and continued change of today’s world, each of us must be a learner and a teacher. Continuous learning, individually and in groups, and effective teaching of one another allow us to keep pace, to thrive and to grow.

Effective communication results in real learning. Educational communications combines strategic communications with the power of learning so that people retain and act upon what they have learned.

Stakeholder Communications

We engage end-users in developing educational communications. This co- construction process builds on the shared concerns and results in developing strategic communications that resonate and respond to the real needs of stakeholders.

Facilitation

Creating a safe environment for effective, open and honest dialogue is key to educational communications. In one-on-one or group settings, knowing how to ask the right questions, facilitate a free flow of positive discussion and gather consensus into action is one of our core strengths.

Professional Development

Educational communications results in professional development. People learn through stories, through doing and through applying their knowledge and building new skills. This is the process of personal and career development.
