In some positions which require skills in technology, data and/or numbers: IT people, accountants, actuaries, and “back office” positions, sometimes it is difficult to communicate with others… especially those who may not be that technically inclined. Compounding the issue is that many people in these business sectors are naturally introverted or have challenges in easily relating to, or communicating with others. So while it is important to not make the content the barrier, understanding communications styles can be a powerful tool to enhance the communications and teamwork among these highly skilled individuals who are critical to your organization. This is easily delivered by Connect.
The step-by-step process within a series of short interactive lessons is meant to be absorbed by all users regardless of their personality style. We’ve integrated the basic tenant and expanded the understanding of the powerful DISC system into an online learning system strengthens individual skills and helps to build high performance teams.
Whether the user watches the first five-minute lesson or absorbs the entire program in one sitting, Connect has been created so that the learning is immediately applicable. The core concepts are so simple and so recognizable as truth—because the user has already experienced what we portray as core problems with interpersonal communications—that the understanding is instantaneous.
The majority of the eight micro-lessons are less than 10 minutes each. And the concepts are easy enough that for many, a single sit-through is enough. The downloadable PDF bonus tips associated with each lesson are designed to help with some of the key details and they can be absorbed anywhere and anytime.
The energizers arrive in the inbox monthly to give reinforcement to the learning so that it can be consistently used in the work environment. The formats and lengths of the energizers vary, but they take up no more than a fraction of time on a monthly basis.
As communications learning and development specialists we understand how people need to receive information in order for it to be effective. That’s why the lessons are mixed with video vignettes with live actors to illustrate situations so that the user can recognize and identify with the concepts in real life, interactive graphics for emphasis and narration from Connect creator Ellen Cooperperson. Many training videos are long affairs with talking heads. Clearly there is a better way and we do it.
Connect is designed to be an unfolding story. So each lesson builds on the preceding one. Monthly “energizers” ensure the lessons stick.
