Many organizations, and indeed, the training and development industry seem content to perpetuate the false notion that curriculum development is 80% PowerPoint presentation and 20% courage to stand in front of a group for an amount of time. Unfortunately, what that gets you is ineffectual training and a large expense shown against the budget.
Leadership Systems takes curriculum development seriously. It requires an in-depth knowledge of adult learning principles and a blended learning strategy that affects every learning style.
Also, we are aware that the material has a correlation to behavior change. The more generic the material, the more reluctant the class participant is to believe that it truly relates to his or her situation. When the material is customized to use the language, difficulties, accomplishments, and situations of the participants, the easier it is for them to believe that the material applies to them and can help. When we work on customizing courseware for a client, we go out of our way to maximize the learning experience for your people.
Because we are working with topics on the people side of business, we have to understand the myriad of variables groups bring to the table. And we understand them intimately. We aren’t working with a programming language or a piece of machinery where repeating certain actions will always net the same result. Instead, we have to teach people to think. We have to help people understand what signs can be read from person to person and give them approaches and courses of action that are reliable. All of this is what curriculum development entails for Leadership Systems
