Stevens Point, WI (PRWEB) September 8, 2004 -
Â MajoriumÂs Leadership Development program gives companies the necessary muscle to drive leadership training deep into their organizations. Leadership development and training is not a discipline that lends itself to event-based training. Running through the woods and walking on hot coals does not teach leadership. The principles of leadership must be incrementally built upon one another, giving managers the tools to enhance and polish their leadership skills.
Majorium employs its unique Integrated Multicast Learning technology to deliver a competency based and curriculum driven leadership program. The program was originally designed and developed to meet the training specifications and deliver training to the employees of Stora Enso North America, the North American subsidiary of one of the worldÂs largest paper manufacturers.
Majorium has continually polished and enhanced its Leadership Development Program to meet the evolving needs of companies seeking to enhance performance and increase results.
Majorium, an innovative and emerging information technology company has learned to harness cheap technology to profitably deliver corporate training for $75.00 per participant. Its standard leadership training program includes three months of comprehensive blended training lessons, group discussion activities and monthly testing and evaluation. It is able to do this without sacrificing the overall quality and the results it produces.
Trainers can seamlessly integrate MajoriumÂs Integrated Learning Technology to:
1. Deliver self-directed leadership training lessons two times per week in PDF format. Lessons are delivered directly to each participantÂs desktop computer. There is no need for employees to logon to a website. The training is brought to them.
2. Each self-directed leadership training lesson focuses on a single training concept and can be conducted at the userÂs convenience in short blocks of time, usually less than 20 minutes per lesson.
3. Lessons use advanced informational architecture concepts to make self-directed lessons easy to read, use and apply.
4. Trainers and managers are provided with discussion materials to tap into employeesÂ synergy to discuss ideas stimulated by the self-directed leadership lessons.
5. Trainers and managers are provided with the materials to conduct interactive leadership workshops that link the training activities to employeesÂ jobs. This effectively transfers training to the workplace.
6. At the end of the training month, employees are tested on-line for both retention and comprehension. Scores are reported to training managers.
This blended training is coordinated. All leadership elements are integrated with each other, sharing mutual leadership competencies and curriculums. Concepts are cross-linked and reinforced multiple times during the monthly training period.
Once training is contracted, it is seamlessly delivered without the need for expensive content management and delivery infrastructure. Majorium uses existing technology used by all companies, to drive training costs down.
Training managers who are concerned with employee resistance to new leadership training methods should note that sixty-six percent (66%) of leadership training participants preferred Integrated Multicast Learning over conventional seminar training (33%) and e-learning (8%).
According to David Drickhamer of Industry Week, ÂCompanies canÂt afford to waste time or money on non-value added training.Â He cites the failure of training results in the inability of companies to Âprovide any knowledge of lasting value Â and fails to have a long term-impact on performance.Â
Integrated Multicast Learning challenges the way traditional training produces results. For every dollar companies invest in the Majorium Leadership Development program, participants achieve an average 618% return on their training investments after their first year, with additional residual returns reported in subsequent years.
Mr. Drickhamer observes Âreal employee development, the foundation of any sustainable culture change, combines classroom sessions with on-the-job practice and on-going reinforcementÂ Training is continuous, driven by operational strategy and is delivered by peersÂ Such activities are maintained because they can be directly linked to behavior changes and activities that drive business results.Â MajoriumÂs leadership training provides companies with the training elements that achieve these goals.
To assist training managers to assess new training technologies and programs, Majorium is providing a free downloadable ROI Evaluation Tool on its website: http://www.majorium.com. This tool allows training managers to evaluate competitive training programs to identify the one that best meets their needs. The ROI Evaluation Tool is free of charge and obligation. It is formatted as an Excel database for easy use.
