A variety of formats:

  • Lunch & Learns allowing for brown bag or company offered lunch. At the end of the workshop, all attendants receive a handout summarizing the topic covered encouraging and allowing for continued practice of the new skill acquired.
  • ½ Day of Skill Building practice and feedback on the methods and principles. Additional handouts, follow-up goals set, and peer follow-through.
  • Full Day with Multiple Practice rounds, often including video-taping with feedback. Workbook, active goal setting, and follow-up coaching calls to ensure practice and success.
  • Multiple days covering a variety of managerial topics to build well rounded managers and leaders.

Three Phases to every workshop:

  1. Engaging all participants through preparations:
    • a) Conduct an interview with a key stakeholder (such as an executive or manager) to learn the business context for the workshop and understand the participants, or
    • b) Conduct an online readiness survey of the expected audience to gauge their needs and skill levels. This data collection serves as a needs analysis and opportunity to motivate the participants beforehand. Most importantly, outcomes and measures of business success will result.
  2. Conducting the workshop: The Bader Group’s workshops employ highly interactive techniques and tools to fully engage participants and build a learning community. We utilize art, video, humor, and original activities to stimulate learning and emphasize critical skills and methods.  For example, to illustrate the need to provide specific feedback in performance coaching, we had teams play competitive darts with one blind-folded player per team throwing real darts.  Of course, the better the team’s coaching and feedback, the more accurate the blind dart thrower.  Don’t worry, no one was hurt and safety was everyone’s responsibility.
  1. Follow-up: Depending on the length of the workshop, different follow-up mechanisms come into play:
  2. Follow-up coaching call to the group leader or chosen representative.
  3. The above plus an email note to all participants that contains suggestions, encouragement, and notes from their workshop.
  4. Individual or Group based Coaching calls for all participants.
