Learning for the World we live in!
Did you know that the retention of information one day after a classroom training is about 10%? And that participants apply only 10% of what they learned once back on the job?
Yet, 90% of learning in companies is still delivered as an instructor-led classroom training! Similar statistics apply to eLearning, with average completion rates at about 10% for any online class.
Millions of dollars (145 billion annually to be precise*) are spent every year in "training solutions" that fail to truly impact human behavior and fail to deliver business results.
This bothers us. Deeply. Learning done right and continuously can be so enriching and inspiring, and provides such a unique competitive advantage for organizations. We've obsessed about this topic and spent years experimenting with various learning methodologies and formats. We think we're far better than most at delivering high-impact, bite-size and cost-effective intelligent learning to people who are too busy and too smart to just sit in classrooms with fancy handouts or in front of a computer.
We're particularly good at working in small group customized consultations with sharp and driven learners who are motivated to acquire knowledge quickly and to apply it for immediate results.
We hate old-fashioned "training" as much as you do, but we feel it is a privilege to learn and grow, and to help others learn and grow.
If this resonates with you, contact us. We'd love to speak with you.

"Providing staff training is always a challenge due to the time commitment and the return (i.e., knowledge retention). Manuelle worked with me directly to develop training into smaller “bite size” chunks, resulting in a multi-part series on “Negotiation Skills". We divided the classes into three 1- 1½ hour sections, allowing us to conduct trainings during normal/routine meetings, so no extra time or travel was necessary.
Manuelle recognized the advantage of short sessions, and applied homework assignments in between to stimulate participation and keep the subject fresh. She utilized breakout groups during each class and encouraged participants to teach each other.
These brief seminars proved highly beneficial and were much better received by participants with far more impact than if the same amount of time had been used to deliver a one-time training."
