SimplifyWork is a 12-week leadership development program that uses team-focused learning to address real world problems: leading process improvements and increasing engagement.
This is a practical, learn-by-doing program.
Managers learn in a supportive, small-cohort setting.
Then they share and practice the concepts with their teams on a real process they want to improve.
By sharing what they learn with their teams, managers strengthen their working relationship with the team.
That can set the foundation for inspiring engagement, inclusion, and trust.
Managers bring their results and challenges back to the cohort so they can learn from and support each other.
The cohort sessions are online live and guided by a qualified trainer.
Between cohort sessions, managers use an online training platform to access training material, including videos and downloadable tools.
By the end of the training the teams have a new process to implement.
Immediate success reinforces their confidence in SimplifyWork and their ability to improve other processes, maintaining momentum in their improvement efforts.
