Professional Development Training
We will always tailor the delivery of your In-House Training to ensure it is relevant
to your team, and targeted at your learning goals. We can incorporate your company's
examples and terminology to ensure the training can be directly related back
to your workplace. This is standard and included in the price.
We use specialist trainers for each course. Therefore, you receive a course tailored
to your operational needs by a specialist trainer - every time.
These energising training sessions can be highly effective and can be used in a variety of ways.

The "One Off Team Building Energiser"
Many busy organisations use a single "1-Hour Motivator" as a team building session
that is designed as a fun session focused on a specific learning needs such as Time
Management, Email Etiquette, or Conflict Resolution.
The "Culture Creator Series"
By running these great fun sessions as a series (once a week or once a month),
organisations can drive a behavioural change by maintaining a focus on specific
areas. These sessions can be really effective to provide training that can be applied
on the job immediately and gradually build on the skills over time.
These great fun, fast-paced sessions are often the best choice for training for your team.
The most common situations where 3-hour Power sessions are the best choice are:
Outcome Imperative - Only specific learning is required
When you have identified just a handful of very specific topics for your team, and you want to ensure every minute of the training is relevant, outcome-focused and engaging for your team.
In this situation, we will work with you to select the most poignant topics from the full course outline (normally 3 - 5 topics from the full course) and deliver a tailored course that achieves the biggest outcome in the least amount of time.
Operational Imperative - Timing and scheduling drives the training
When your operational situation is such that you can't or would prefer not to have everyone off the job at once, or off the job for a full day.
Commonly in this situation, we rotate half the team through in the morning and the other half through in the afternoon, and often cover the full course over 2 x 3 hour sessions over two or more days.
However, we will work with you to find the most suitable solution to accommodate your team and their situation.
"Immersed in Learning"
This traditional Professional Development Training style is highly effective and
gives the participants the best opportunity to really immerse themselves in the
topics and explore topics in some depth.
The full-day approach gives the trainer and the participants the opportunity to
build on topics throughout the day and provide opportunities to have lots of 'learning
by doing', reflection and collaboration.

Skills Learned in Training
During the high impact tailored courses delivered by pdtraining,
participants gain a fantastic range of skills and techniques that are directly applicable
to on-the-job performance.
After the course - without reinforcement
After completing a course, participants can be categorised into types of people
- the "Implementers", and the "1-dayers"
These people will give the new techniques a try in the days or weeks after the course.
As with any new skill, the success in applying these new skills will be varied.
Some will find instant success and improved performance! Some will find trying the
new skills the first time will be hit-and-miss.
These people will give it a go 'one-day', and we all know when 'one-day' will come.
Both of these categories of people benefit dramatically from Post-Course Support
received from our Skills Booster sessions. The Skills Booster sessions are 1-3 hour
sessions during which the participants receive coaching, support and encouragement
as they share their experiences (successes and short comings) in applying the skills
they learned in training on the job. The trainer provides coaching and facilitates
collaboration and support between the participants.
These sessions benefit the 'The Implementers' by helping them gain confidence through
the coaching from the trainer, and collaboration support from their peers.
The '1-Dayers' benefit by having the course concepts reinforced, and by discussing
exactly how the course concepts are being applied by their colleagues.
Normally by the second Skills Booster session, even the '1-dayers' have become 'Implementers'
and a new organisational competency will have been created.
These sessions are the most effective way of creating true organisational competency
in a particular area, and to foster a strong learning culture.
