Educate and Empower Your Humans through Training

We are intrinsically motivated by learning, growth, and challenge. Organizations want employees who are agile, self-aware, and continuously evolve. And yet most training – a critical bridge between individual aspirations and organizational requirements – doesn’t cut it. It’s boring. Irrelevant. Too long. Not long enough. Flavor of the month/spaghetti on the wall. It’s time to reimagine this trusted talent development tool. It’s time for a collective growth mindset.

How It Works

Carol Dweck writes in the eye-opening book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success: “In [the growth] mindset, the hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development…[it] is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts…The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives.”

Training is about harnessing this growth mindset, igniting that passion for learning and applying new stuff. Which means training must be RAW – relevant, applicable, and  wowza (yes, that’s a technical term). Relevant – there’s a strong why anchoring the training, clear links to organizational, functional, department, team, and personal aspirations. Applicable – concepts are digestible, tools can be personalized, and benefits of real-world experimentation are apparent. Wowza – the content delights the eye, the facilitator matches energy and style to the audience, the environment (live or virtual) supports optimal learning, and there’s lots of interaction.

Examples of WorkJoy’s RAW training include:

  • 8-part management fundamentals training designed to shift mindsets from administrator/supervisor to “builder of meaningful connection”
  • Multi-month virtual leadership skill-building program that sparked conversations about psychological safety, situational leadership, and mentoring
  • All-people manager program on personalizing engagement through stay conversations – using a simple and memorable 2×2 framework
  • Emotional intelligence skill-building leveraging self- and social-awareness tools like DiSC, True Colors, and CliftonStrengths
  • Leading from the middle – content designed for directors + VPs who must manage up, down, and across (a super challenging role in most organizations)
  • Embracing productive and constructive conflict – leveraging the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument

Say goodbye to overcooked training that doesn’t capture hearts and minds. It’s time to get RAW with WorkJoy.
