Companies typically have a handful of managers who are geographically distributed or can’t attend our core instructor-led workshops at a central location. The eStudy Group approach elegantly solves that problem, in addition to reinforcement of on-site training.
Seattle (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
Impact Achievement Group, Inc. announced the availability of eStudyGroups, a series of blended, distributed training sessions that focus on the key competencies of performance management.
The eStudyGroups integrate the company’s Performance Advantage SimSeries™ program of self-paced tutorials and simulations. The topic areas include Principles of Effective Leadership™, Performance Based Management™, Performance Based Coaching™, Managing Workplace Discussions™, and Performance Problem Discussions.™
With eStudyGroup, following their completion of each self-study SimSeries topic, up to five participants engage in a conference call with a certified facilitator to discuss key learning points, expand on the application in their role, and take part in Q&A opportunities.
“The eStudyGroup solution provides a great resource for leadership development among our customers, and is generating a lot of interest,” said Lee Klepinger, president and chief executive officer. “Companies typically have a handful of managers who are geographically distributed or can’t attend our core instructor-led workshops at a central location. The eStudy Group approach elegantly solves that problem, in addition to reinforcement of on-site training.”
The eStudyGroup package provides participants with the Performance Advantage SimSeries™ training programs. The SimSeries’ CD or web-based, highly interactive learning environment engages participants with choice-based content, case studies, activities, and tests, plus interactive voice-based simulation drills. All elements are designed to ensure comprehension and mastery of the most critical leadership skills for managing employee performance.
Afterwards, study group participants receive training in the facilitator-led call to further reinforce the SimSeries topics. Customers benefit by blending both self-directed learning and instructor-led training available for small groups that need focused development, executive teams needing to align concepts, language and models developed with their front line and middle managers, and to reinforce and continue learning among those managers attending the full onsite workshops.
