Build your workshop in 4 steps

To ensure that your team develops the knowledge and skills most relevant to your business, we’ll spend some time to build a tailored training program. Here’s how the process normally goes.

Step 1. Discuss your goals with us

We want to understand your business, goals and learning needs so we can offer training that is spot on. We like to get into the details of your business, your typical challenges, staff capacity and so on. This may require a few discussions.

Step 2. Select lessons

Our entire training system consists of 6 days’ training, with over lessons broken into 80 mini-lessons. Most lessons contain a combination of theory, reinforcement exercises, and practical applications.

Below are our 2 most popular courses. We also provide training on personality, psychometric nudging, and gamification for education with a focus on LMS design.

Step 3. Pick your format

In most cases, students love our default approach. We’ve spent years perfecting the format, which blends our content with experiential learning, group exercises, design challenges and scenario-based learning games. It’s quite engaging.

However, depending on your needs, we can tailor different types of courses. If you prefer a traditional classroom setting, no problem. If you prefer a hands-on workshop, fine. And if you prefer a behavioral science sprint, that’s also good.

However, here are the three most common formats:

Interactive Classroom

1. Standard Interactive Classroom

This is our standard workshop, which we’ve perfected over the years. It’s heavy on educational content while blending numerous exercises to keep the class energized and engaged.

If you want to cover a lot of content, we recommend this format.

Interactive Classroom

2. Standard + Design Challenges

In this edition, we’ll map your platforms, personas and goals, then run the class with a blend of modules and design challenges. This is between a formal class and design sprint

This is a good format for blending education while solving business challenges.

Hackathon

3. Hackathon or Design Sprint

Want to use behavioral science to build a digital product or campaign? Consider our hackathon or behavioral design editions. The hackathon edition is more about group competitions, while the design sprint edition is for solving a big challenge.

Use these formats to innovate.

Step 4. Augment with spicy add-ons

If you want training that’s truly special, consider some spicy add-ons. They’re the energizers that will make the class extra engaging, fun and productive. Here’s the spice you can add:

Psychology-Driven Design Challenges

Pre-training Process Modelling

Scenario-based Learning Games

Design Tools & Templates

Pre-build Segments and Personas with behavioral insights

Experimental-learning exercises

Online training subscriptions for long term retention

Live polling and voting exercises
