SOFT SKILLS training

Even the greatest captains throughout history had to learn the ropes from the more experienced. A training workshop is a great place to learn new things, meet interesting people and experience the change in your behaviours… behaviours that will help you take the reins and lead yourself on the most exciting journey to personal growth.

At Learning Adventures we don't go with the flow! Instead we work in collaboration with you to help you identify your training needs upfront and then we develop a customised training solution to help you reach your goals and improve performance. 

HOW WE WORK?

Step 1

You contact us (or fill in this form) to let us know what topics you are interested in and what outcomes do you wish to achieve.

Step 2

We arrange a meeting to understand your organisation, your pain points, your desired outcomes and how we can help you achieve them.

Step 3

We design a draft session plan and send it to you for feedback. We do this until you are happy with the session design.

Step 4

We deliver the session and collect feedback from all participants and main stakeholders.

 
 

Our methodology

We can deliver 3 types of training sessions:

Traditional classroom

An experiential face-to-face or online training session delivered by an expert facilitator. 

Prices start at €600

flipped classroom

A series of 3 events: pre-class, in-class and post-class work spread across multiple days or weeks.

Prices start at €600

webinar

An interactive virtual session delivered exclusively to an online audience.

Prices start at €300

All training designs use a mixture of experiential and active learning approaches as well as the latest adult learning concepts. The classroom events are interactive and practical, aiming to allow learners as much freedom as possible in exploring the topic.
