The world has gone just a little crazy during the outbreak of COVID19, with toilet paper panic buying, unstable stock markets, seminars being cancelled, whole countries closing down and the world economy taking a sustained and prolonged hit. As a result, we are advised that the best way to avoid the virus during this peak period is to stay at home, however that’s only a temporary solution and this and other diseases are not going away anytime soon.
How do we avoid contagion AND stay productive? Virtual sessions…
The answer of course is to move, temporarily at least,
online, which is happening as a matter of course with any job that doesn’t
involve the need to be hands on. If you are a plumber for instance, this blog
may not be of further interest to you!
Peers and Players has been providing Virtual Training Sessions for many years for companies around the world. This isn’t just online training modules, it’s working live with educators and corporate actors, learning, discussing and sharing training to enhance communication and management techniques. Whether it’s presentations skills, roleplay or challenging conversations, most forms of interpersonal skills training can be conducted online as effectively as working face to face.
Apart from the germ free nature of virtual sessions, there are added advantages of this kind of learning delivery. There are huge monetary savings to be made because you can deliver the training you want, with the trainers and participants you want, without the need to fly them from site to site. Virtual training can be rapidly designed and implemented from anywhere in the world.
Peers and Players has team members in all corners of
the globe, in Australia, Asia, Europe and America and everywhere in between. We
can marry the right training team with the appropriate vocational background,
language and cultural awareness to your training needs. Whether you want to
teach a team of bi-lingual novice managers from south-east Asia about dealing
with difficult or demanding clients, work with Managers in the USA who need to
practice difficult feedback conversations with their staff or just inspire and
add value to new team leaders, we can have the appropriate trainers and actor/coaches
set up to deliver virtual training within days.
The chances are that this won’t be the only time
something like this happens. Pandemics, natural disasters and financial
crashes, to name a few, can happen at any time. So maybe it’s time to protect your
training schedule from the unpredictability of future events.
