E-learning Nove­lis manage­ment trai­ning

You are born to lead. You eit­her have it or you don’t. BULL­SHIT!

Our cli­ent Nove­lis sup­ports its employees in their lea­ders­hip deve­lo­p­ment. The com­pa­ny con­ducts regu­lar needs ana­ly­ses to con­ti­nu­al­ly expand its trai­ning offe­ring. The result: a desi­re for more com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ve con­fi­dence.

A chal­len­ge:

  • Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ve chal­len­ges are usual­ly very indi­vi­du­al - lear­ners face dif­fe­rent hurd­les that we have to address wit­hin one trai­ning pro­gram­me.
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is about expe­ri­en­cing, making and doing - theo­re­ti­cal know­ledge trans­fer does not help lear­ners (nor does 99% of pro­fes­sio­nal chal­len­ges).
  • Dis­tri­bu­t­ed teams lea­ve us no choice but to train in a digi­tal envi­ron­ment. The result is some­thing we are real­ly proud of: the most inter­ac­ti­ve online trai­ning pro­gram­me in our histo­ry.

Our task

We are responsible for the design and delivery of various communication training courses. The client required the training to be delivered digitally and in small groups.

Our aim

Participants gain security for their professional future.
We lay the foundations for development that goes far beyond our training programmes.

Our stra­te­gy

The most interactive online training courses in our history. Almost all the content is developed by the participants themselves. The learning group becomes a safe space, colleagues become facilitators and the digital meeting room becomes a stage.

The result

Prospective leaders go through an empowerment programme where they learn with and from each other. There is no one format.

From virtual coaching to facilitated peer learning and hands-on tutorials, our digital course programme for Novelis is as diverse as the needs of the learners.

All touch­points the same

To ensu­re that all trai­ning modu­les feel the same, the­re are a few con­stants that we trans­la­te into dif­fe­rent for­mats:

1. com­mu­nities working tog­e­ther to deve­lop rele­vant con­tent

Our coa­ches pro­vi­de con­tent impul­ses and sup­port the group in inde­pendent­ly fin­ding ans­wers to key ques­ti­ons (e.g. What is important when crea­ting good pre­sen­ta­ti­ons?”, How can I best get to know dif­fe­rent tar­get groups?”, etc.). In this way, we not only achie­ve a hig­her lear­ning effect, but also con­tex­tua­li­se the lear­ning con­tent.

2. lear­ning with col­leagues and experts
Our pro­gram­me encou­ra­ges employees to learn tog­e­ther with col­leagues who have simi­lar goals but dif­fe­rent chal­len­ges, and to dis­cuss what they have lear­ned. The desi­red side effect: a deep under­stan­ding of very dif­fe­rent busi­ness are­as and struc­tures.

3. lear­ning con­tent is avail­ab­le on mul­ti­ple plat­forms and in mul­ti­ple for­mats
Trai­ning mate­ri­als such as check­lists, video links, fur­ther rea­ding, etc. allow par­ti­ci­pants to enga­ge with the lear­ning con­tent out­side of the trai­ning ses­si­ons: Indi­vi­du­al­ly and whenever the workload allows or the situa­ti­on requi­res.

    Need an examp­le of con­tent?

    How do we over­co­me the fear of pre­sen­ting con­tent and at the same time put into prac­ti­ce the rhe­to­ri­cal tech­ni­ques we have learnt? We take the par­ti­ci­pants to our digi­tal karao­ke bar. It’s not about sin­ging, but about pre­sen­ting unfa­mi­li­ar Power­Point sli­des to the group with con­fi­dence. Just like in a karao­ke bar, but without the alco­hol.

    Lin­ked con­tent

    After over­co­m­ing some initi­al obsta­cles, our Power­Point karao­ke is the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty for par­ti­ci­pants to gain a lot of con­fi­dence in pre­sen­ting in a busi­ness con­text and to expe­ri­ence how pau­ses, ges­tu­res and breat­hing can help them. At the same time, we can prac­ti­se ano­t­her important aspect of Nove­lis’ cor­po­ra­te cul­tu­re: The group gives appre­cia­ti­ve, con­struc­ti­ve feed­back accord­ing to the methods we have trai­ned.

    A ques­ti­on of (lear­ning) cul­tu­re

    Every orga­ni­sa­ti­on has its own lear­ning cul­tu­re. By this we mean the infor­mal rules, norms and values that govern beha­viour wit­hin the orga­ni­sa­ti­on, inclu­ding lear­ning. A sus­tainab­le lear­ning cul­tu­re is cha­rac­te­ri­sed by, among other things, lear­ning being embed­ded in work pro­ces­ses and lear­ners taking respon­si­bi­li­ty for mana­ging and proac­tively shaping their own qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons.

    This is whe­re our online trai­ning comes in:
    We pro­vi­de the impe­tus, crea­te the frame­work and give the par­ti­ci­pants all the tools they need - but ulti­mate­ly they are respon­si­ble for the (las­ting) suc­cess of the trai­ning.

    We shape the lear­ning cul­tu­re of the com­pa­ny:
    Acti­ve par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on pays off for the lear­ners. Indi­vi­du­al respon­si­bi­li­ty is deman­ded and abo­ve all encou­ra­ged, and in the long term it beco­mes an acti­ve atti­tu­de at Nove­lis.
