ExperienceInnovation™ Train-the-Trainer

Meet Stephanie Tait, one of our Master Facilitators

Why Train-the-Trainer

Our workshops are transforming the way people learn, manage change and solve complex problems. They're fun to deliver, accelerate Facilitators' careers and enable your organization to achieve your desired change.

After Train-the-Trainer, your certified Facilitators will be the ones your people turn to when they have questions and want to make a difference. They will disseminate the knowledge, and the application of that knowledge, to help solve your organizational challenges.

You are the heroes of this story. To have external people deliver all of your workshops, or initiate all of your projects, creates an unhelpful dependency. Not only is Train-the-Trainer the most cost-effective way to deliver workshops to your people, but when we set up eager people in your organization to deliver workshops, it also signals to your organization that you have the aptitude internally to do this kind of work well.

The focus of Train-the-Trainer is to train Facilitators to deliver ExperiencePoint's award-winning workshops in a way that helps your people learn and practice innovation and change skills.

ExperienceInnovation™ workshop, built in collaboration with celebrated design consultancy IDEO, takes you through the essentials of a four-month innovation project in a half-day workshop.

Through an expertly guided innovation simulation, you will tackle a business challenge in a team-based competition. They'll build innovation confidence and competence and emerge with foundational knowledge and a real experience in design thinking. They'll be ready to apply it immediately to solve business challenges, support a culture of innovation and turn great ideas into solutions that make an impact.

½ Day ExperienceInnovation™ Aware

ExperienceInnovation™ Aware introduces your people to essential design thinking techniques, mindsets and behaviors in a hands-on format. This 90 minute workshop highlights how to bring creative habits like deep user empathy, radical collaboration and rapid experimentation to one's work every day.

As a result, your people will develop an awareness of and support for design thinking as an approach to problem solving. Our workshop will also help your people provoke fresh ideas to address a meaningful challenge or opportunity.

1 Day Deliberate Practice and Feedback

We believe that people learn best by doing.

Underscoring that effective learning requires more doing and less passive listening, participants experience innovation and change through our workshops, and teach the workshop back to their peers, turning Train-the-Trainer into a "flipped classroom".

Our intent is to increase the amount of time that Facilitators spend practicing in situations as close to their actual work environment as possible, with meaningful feedback on their performance, to facilitate a "best ever workshop" experience for your people.
