The Foundation Course can be used to develop existing teams, to assist with culture change initiatives, or to further develop individuals’ interpersonal skills. It enables teams to explore topics together, exchange ideas, and benefit from a unified approach to introducing improvements into the workplace.

Most importantly, the course is designed to deliver a fun and lively learning experience that even the most course-averse participant will enjoy.

Course Structure

The course consists of five modules that reinforce and build on each other, with the first module providing participants with skills and perspectives to enhance reflection and learning for the rest of the course. The course allows for evolutionary change at a manageable pace.

During each session, participants engage in a series of purpose-built experiential activities and discussions. Activities keep energy levels high and are designed to be both fun and insightful -allowing the practical application of new skills and knowledge in a safe environment. Discussions dovetail with activities and allow deeper exploration of module topics.

Participants are encouraged to draw on their own considerable pool of experiences and knowledge during discussions, and instructors 'facilitate learning' rather than ‘teach’ the course. Throughout the day, participants discuss ways to apply learnings to the workplace and specific actions for workplace improvement are recorded at the end of the day.
