  • What training methods do you employ?

    We work primarily on a workshop basis, which means that theoretical knowledge is limited to a minimum and most of the time during sessions is devoted to experiencing and practicing skills.

    We apply engaging and diverse methods of work with people, among others, online and classroom workshops, webinars, conference lectures, Action Reflection Learning sessions, workshops conducted by the drama method, business simulations, implementation calendars, self-diagnosis questionnaires, consulting & coaching and blended learning sessions. Applications, websites and platforms are used where they facilitate the development process.

    Achievement of the effect consistent with the customer’s expectations, which was contracted at the process beginning, is the core of our philosophy of action.
