Course description

Training in a Virtual Environment

Transferring your face-to-face skills to the online world

This virtual training session is designed to help experienced trainers transfer their existing facilitation skill set to the virtual world in order to provide fruitful learning experiences for learners. Throughout this series of virtual sessions and on-demand modules, participants apply the principles of The Orderly Conversation to their own real-life virtual training content. Training in the Virtual Environment includes pre-work and access to eCoach. Participants receive reusable job aids and reference materials to apply what they learn in class to the situations they face outside of it. As part of the tailoring process, Turpin works with clients to understand the specific needs of each group of individuals and modifies the workshop accordingly. If training materials don’t exist prior to the workshop, we help participants with the instructional design process (additional fees apply). If you use dedicated hosts, they can participate in the training as well. At times they will observe; at other times, they will take an active role.

Communication Training Yields Business Results

We believe that business communication training must focus on business results: making work easier, employees more successful, workplaces more cooperative, and goals more attainable.

Getting Business Done and Growing Leadership Capability:

Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases and careers advance. This brings positive results to your team and company.
