SDW Management and Employee Development
Have you ever walked out of a training session feeling like you were ready to take on the world with the new information you just acquired? Ever wonder why a few days or weeks later you notice yourself reverting back to the “old way” of doing things?
This is because the emphasis was placed on the “act of training” instead of the desired outcomes.
In the recent Harvard Business Review article “Why Organizations Need to Make Learning Hard”, the author points out that standard teaching methods don’t incorporate on-the-job applications that will help people retain the information. Typical management and employee training relies on memorization, which does not provide for long-term learning.
At SDW Management Development, we create content and courses by “beginning with the end in mind.” This leads to:
- Long-term behavior change in learners
- Improved on-the-job performance
- Measurable results
Consider the many benefits your organization will experience with SDW’s systematic management development programs. These programs will identify new practices to immediately implement and foster sustainable learning across your workforce to drive increased profitability.
Choose one of two options for workshops/coursework to be presented:
Face-to-face: One of our senior facilitators will come to a site of your choosing and deliver the sessions directly to your managers. This provides the best opportunity for exchange of ideas, best practices, and experiential activities that enhance the transfer of what was learned back to on-the-job behaviors.
Turnkey Licensing: We provide all the training and materials (including facilitation guides) necessary to set one of your in-house facilitators up for success. Ask us how our organizational licensing program works!
How are the SDW Management and Employee Development Programs Different from the Competition?
Most of our competitors fall into one of two categories:
Those with the academic backgrounds to develop sound content but lacking the practical experience to make it relevant.
Those with the experience to know what end-users want but lacking the expertise to develop content that accomplishes the desired objectives/outcomes.
The SDW Management Development team includes Both PhDs who combine academic excellence with practical experience and former Senior Executives who bring an invaluable client perspective including a focus on delivering a return on investment.
