All school improvement workshops and training are two – six hours in length and customized to meet the unique needs of the participants.
All staff trainings consist of a half-day (three hours) or full-day (six hours) segment that lead to in depth understanding, skills and a plan of action that can be used for their success.
Customized On-Site Workshops and Training
We can send one of our trainers to your location for a workshop or training that focuses on your organization’s needs. We will help identify what issues you would like our skills training to address before the workshop/training takes place. We will customize exercises to specifically address your group’s issues so topics will resonate with staff experiences, thus increasing their involvement.
Each of our workshops can be tailored to meet our client’s needs. In addition to considering organizational goals, culture, and size, Ground Game Consulting will assist in assessing and identifying what teams in your organization are lacking and how they might improve. With this information, our design team will customize a workshop, team-building training experience, or a high-impact retreat. Our experienced and highly educated facilitators will then deliver the material and concepts using hands-on, experiential activities, interactive discussions, and practice opportunities. Once the training is complete, we’re available to help participants sustain their newly acquired skills for the long-term success of the organization. We want to see our services work for our clients, and are committed to making that happen.
These offerings are for eight to 100 participants and can be scheduled to fit your calendar.
