Our approach to training
Our unique experiential and participative approach ensures application of theory, personal “buy-in” and commitment to learning and is based on over 50 years of experience in delivering transformational training. Our approach is based on sound adult education principles, which focuses on the inherent strengths and competencies of the individual. Our tried and tested experiential facilitation process creates a safe, informal and relaxed atmosphere, thus encouraging skills practice and feedback so that the learning has relevance and significance. Self-awareness exercises and input are carefully tailored to match the specific needs of those participating. A by-product of the experiential nature of our training is that it facilitates an opportunity for team cohesiveness i.e. acts as a form of team building.
The structure of training at LifeLine Corporate tends to focus on behavioural learning techniques. This form of training is conducted with smaller groups, allowing for greater discussion and evaluation of models to embed real understanding as opposed to classroom rigid based learning. As our society becomes ever more interconnected, successful companies will be those who understand how to leverage and understand cultural differences instead of seeing them as obstacles. The need for skills such as Communication, Teamwork and Listening is not going anywhere in the near future. And in fact is more in demand.
In order to maximise “classroom” time, we work with small groups of minimum 6 participants (with 1 facilitator) and a maximum of 16 participants (with 2 facilitators). Classroom time is reserved for experiential and practical exercises. Theory is provided in a manual for participants to read at own pace.
Why LifeLine Johannesburg?
Premium corporate soft skills training at competitive prices
Training which involves behavioural change is not something that can be gleaned from reading a text book or an e-learning programme. It requires experiential learning exercises and the opportunity to practice and this takes time, so it is the length of the training rather than the per day cost that decision makers might struggle to approve. Over the years, it’s been noted that there is an underlying need and urgency for soft skills training, however not many companies seem to utilise and invest in these training options for the staff members upon employment or at a stage where training is urgently needed due to company budget difficulties not being implemented in the beginning of financial planning. Our programmes are delivered by extremely experienced LifeLine trained facilitators to ensure our methodology is consistent across trainings.
Our training is competitively priced and rates depend on the size and number of participants, the length of training and the amount of tailoring required.
With a minimum of 6 participants, we are able to provide training at your venue, as onsite training eliminates staff travel costs. LifeLine also has an excellent training venue that can be hired out should you require a venue. All training programmes are carefully tailored and flexible to match your participants’ needs, therefore all trainings quotes are matched to your requirements.
