Training

MORRIS ASSOCIATES INC. takes an active role in designing and customizing presentation and training agendas and materials with you so we can address the key needs of your organization.

Our full-service, before-during-after approach ensures that participants maximize time at the event by focusing on pre-defined learning goals, channeling activities and producing desired results from the moment training begins.

PRE-EVENT:

Define Learning Goals, Set the Stage
  • Listen to understand organizational culture and context (who and what) and to define specific training focus and relevance (why and how).
  • Develop preliminary workshop objectives and agenda.
  • If appropriate, hold an informal meeting or call with a focus group of participants to refine and reinforce workshop objectives and agenda and to set the stage for an effective event.

EVENT:

Fun, Fast, Productive
  • Promote a high-energy interactive environment, with participative exercises and discussions punctuated by focused presentations of key points.
  • Facilitate learning, goal-achievement and skill development through practice and practical application.
  • Capture and reinforce participant input and learning through review and post-event process.

POST-EVENT:

Follow-Through and Follow-Up
  • Format, edit and word process results from the event to be distributed to participants after the workshop.
  • Review training results with management to help structure follow-up communications to participants. Depending on your goals, we can set another meeting and hold a 60 – 90 minute review and reinforce training with participants to insure skills learned are effectively being used on the job.
