Your organization is successful at the moment, but you see that your market is changing and your competitors are quickly gaining on you. You’ve got the feeling that your organization has come to a standstill. How can you keep pace with the changes in your market? How can you keep ahead of your competitors? You see that your employees lack a sense of urgency, which means they also lack the sense of ownership that it takes to bring about changes and improvements. You want to get your people moving, but without undertaking a major reorganization.
New mindset and skills
Change in your organization starts with the people who work there. They must have the right mindset to want to continually grow and improve. Creating a culture that prioritizes change and innovation calls for a new and different kind of skillset. With our Future Skills program, you develop the mindset and skills that you need to keep up with a rapidly changing market. These skills provide the basis that every employee needs in order to work at—and contribute to—an innovation-focused organization, and to perform optimally.
Based on the type of organization, the culture you are trying to achieve and the strategic focus, we help you determine which new skills you are going to need. Some of the main future skills we have helped our clients to identify and develop in the past include:
- customer focus
- personal leadership
- social and personal skills
- creative and critical thinking
- learning agility
Our Future Skills program has proven successful at developing the right skills among employees. The program starts with a science-based scan which we developed ourselves. This scan reveals the extent to which employees already have the skills they need. Based on the findings of the scan, we work with you to develop an action plan and create your development program. This ensures that the program is a perfect match for the development you are trying to achieve.
The development program lasts for 3 months and consists of 4 interactive bootcamps with a wide range of interventions, as well as an online learning platform with various e-learning modules.
We design the interactive bootcamps to cater specifically to the challenges you are facing as an organization. During the bootcamps, we form multidisciplinary teams that work together to find solutions to these challenges. This requires for all participants to apply new skills. In addition to developing new skills, we also work on finding solutions to overcome existing challenges. This makes the program not only highly effective, but also an excellent return on investment.
Throughout the program, all participants have access to an online learning environment where they can continually develop specific new skills through e-learning modules, online assignments, videos, questionnaires, podcasts, whitepapers and many other online tools. To accelerate the learning process, participants also have the option of taking part in personalized (e-)coaching.
We strongly believe that managers play a vital role in creating a culture of innovation and change. Throughout the program, we organize masterclasses that are specially developed for managers, teaching them how to promote and handle change and innovation.
The program is guided by a learning director who oversees the learning process, monitors progress and serves as a single point of contact, directing all participants in their personal development.
