Studies show that behavior change happens with shorter, targeted training sessions rather than multi-day events. This program applies these principles by using ongoing virtual group training modules.
How it works:
· 90-minute long virtual training sessions (recommended one per month)
· Each session will include a specific topic and the theory behind it, examples and then allow participants to apply it using practice sessions and roleplays.
· These are highly interactive, and fun sessions designed to give participants plenty of new ideas to practice in a safe environment to build confidence for real-world scenarios.
