Make Behaviors Stick

SilegaTraning Process is a time-proven system to guarantee effect of training and it includes the following 12 steps:

  1. Needs and gap analysis – On this first encounter with your organization, our team will help you analyze the current performance issues, how they impact the business and define what are the potential areas for growth. Pre-workshop online questionnaires can be applied as well.
  2. Set expectations and define outcomes – This stage includes meeting the customer and defining crystal-clear objectives for the learning intervention. Objectives can be linked with performance both on individual or organizational level.
  3. Benchmark (Current state picture) – Silega can measure the current performance levels of your organization, skills, behaviors and compare it with the improvements after the training.
  4. Senior management engagement – Our team will involve actively your senior management in the design and delivery of the learning program.
  5. Training fine tunning – Silega customizes its programs to fit your specific organizational culture. The customization is done on various levels:
  • Culture (role-models, languages, symbols, images, relevance)
  • Content (examples, relevance, case-studies, terminology, and depth)
  1. Engagement of participants prior to the training – Silega engages participants prior to training by creating awareness and eagerness for them to attend the session.
  2. Action plan creation – Together with the customer, Silega creates an action plan for excellent conduction of the training. This includes project stages, timeline, roles and responsibilities. Specific commitments can be also followed-up using our online system.
  3. Logistics – Our team will support you with detailed checklists that guarantee that all logistics needed for the training will be available on site at the day of the session.
  4. Training – The training session is conducted using the principles of experiential learning. Silega ensures that participants are fully engaged, group dynamics are managed smoothly and learning makes business sense.
  5. Transfer of Training – The ultimate goal of training is influencing performance. Silega offers you solutions that increase the degree to which participants successfully apply in their jobs the skills gained in the training room. This might include tools and job aids, additional learning sessions, telephone or live coaching, advice to managers and e-learning through our Training transfer system called SilegaLattitude™.
  6. Benchmark (Before and after comparison) – As an option, Silega can compare the effect of training with your company performance levels before and after the session. As an option you can apply Silega’s Training ROI Audit™ hat will help you quantify the advances achieved.
  7. Report – Silega can provide you with detailed report about the group attitudes, conclusions reached during the training, facilitator’s observations, action plan after the training. Some of our programs include measurement tools which provide higher reliability of the report.

INTEGRATION: Silega’s business simulations can be readily integrated into current training and development initiatives you are managing: BEGINNING as a course beginning to assess initial level. END as a course final to reinforce key messages, DURING as a course theme and as a course complement to theory.

The Power of Accelerated Learning in fast, complex and competitive business environment.

Immediate feedback

Organizational change initiative, product launch, new service development, managing a critical project – you don’t have to wait for months to see how those will unroll. With Silega’s simulations you can experiment with different scenarios and only after a few hours you will be able to analyze the potential outcomes for your business.

Sustainable impact

Immediate feedback is important, however our programs are ultimately designed to provide participants with sustainable skills that will stick. Our methodology (Experiential Learning System – ELS) guarantees that with Silega’s programs people learn and retain four times faster than with regular classroom training.

Easy to apply in real life

Silega’s hands-on experiential learning programs and business simulations are designed to provide executives with practical and immediately applicable skills.

People are responsible for their own learning

Most training programs are “telling” programs – managers or trainers tell trainees what and how to do it. While this might work for specific skills, the “how-to” robotic approach is not applicable to more complex or people-related tasks. Leadership development, innovation, customer services are only a few examples of activities that are always dependent on the context and following a strict “how to” policy might be even counterproductive.

Business simulations let participants focus on the ultimate outcome and experiment with the impact of different decisions.

Active and engaging

Business simulations are based on game theory – participants are presented with a quantifiable outcome and set of rules. Because of their nature of being competitive and result-oriented, simulations engage participants in a unique way. Silega’s programs are designed for short and more effective interventions – from 4 to 5 hours, so participants can stay focused at all time.

Relevant and realistic

All of Silega’s business simulations are based on a mathematical model that reflects a business process or a system. The behavioral patterns of participants during a simulation are similar to those in real life, which make analogies and analysis much more relevant.
