This is how our conversation usually starts
They organized a training, Conflict Bootcamp. The challenge was to create an effective follow-up and ensure that the lessons get applied in practice, enable behavior change.
Panda Training provided a micro-coaching service for Futurice's employees. The main focus was on helping participants to set goals, follow up on them and help them overcome possible obstacles. We received positive feedback
- Helped people to apply the theory they learned at the Bootcamp
- Provided a meaningful way to work through hard emotions
- Helped to gain self-awareness
Well, most training programs are useless - it's an open secret in HR circles. According to research, only 12% of learners apply the skills from the training they receive to their job.
We developed a new approach that we call 'micro-coaching'. With the help of certified coaches that work remotely, we are able to provide a personal coach for every employee, in their pockets.
Yep! More than that, we also collect qualitative data and deliver reports with insights into the company's processes.
We think that you need both pieces of the puzzle: knowledge and behavior change. Training is responsible for one, coaching - for the other.
Do you have a case study?
Hey! My name is Lauri, I'm a Head Coach at Panda Training. How can I help you?
The problem is… Frankly, corporate education doesn't work
As a result, return on investment (ROI) isn't visible and the HR budget is cut at the first sign of trouble. All while employees aren't able to focus on learning due to work overload.
Here is what one of the participants said:
Cool! I'm curious, what problem is your startup working on?
Since coaching allows us to build trust with the employees, we are able to have honest dialogue and find out the information about change management results, leadership and team dynamics, skill gaps, conflicts at the workplace and more.
Futurice, a digital innovation and engineering company with Finnish roots, wanted their employees to manage conflicts at the workplace better.
You see, there is a known methodology - coaching, which helps people to change their behavior. Unfortunately, so far it has been difficult to scale.
So, do you help employees to
achieve the goals they've set for themselves during the training?
What's your solution then?
I see. And what makes you think that?
Mm... How would you do that?
