Real World Training Results

We’ve surveyed people that have undertaken our training, we’ve got the data back – here’s the real world training results:

1. To what extent did this training meet your expectations?

“96% said the training met their expectations”

The Agile Mindset offers training using accelerated learning techniques whilst utilising the 4C’s:

  • Connections
  • Concepts
  • Concrete Practice
  • Conclusions

The instructional design and delivery process keeps learners involved, and proactive, through each step in their course. Engagement throughout the course encourages learning and boosts the overall experience, whilst allowing them to retain more of the techniques and information that they were taught. This makes it more likely that team members will be able to transfer their new skills into their daily life.

2. Did the training keep you engaged?

“95% said they were highly engaged”

Being able to fully engage with a class is a crucial factor for any trainer, because they need to be able to quickly analyse how each attendee works in terms of personality and ability. Engagement is also important to ensure that attendees don’t become bored or lose interest. Interactive lessons that encourage individuals to work in various ways, keep them attentive whilst helping the trainer to understand what makes each person tick.

3. How well did the trainer communicate the information?

“100% said their trainer communicated very well”

In any form of education or training, good communication is key for a variety of reasons:

  • Attendees find it easier to interact with a trainer who communicates well with them.
  • Helps the attendee to gain the confidence to speak up when they do not understand an area that is being covered.
  • Communication removes the possibility of attendees making assumptions about their course and/or training. Instead, they will know as fact everything that they need to.
  • Highlights how important strong communication is – at all levels – and how easily poor communication can result in problems.
    Thus, it enhances the attendees’ personal communication skills.
