Homer and Kahle’s (1988) Cognitive Behaviour model states that in a human being, the values one holds dear will drive the attitude of the person. The attitude, in turn, will drive the outward behaviour which then creates an impact on the physical world.
We believe that in order for change to happen, a training program needs to cater to the 3 domains stated. That’s why people can go to a training, stating they have learned a lot of skills, yet we don’t see them applying it to their daily lives and tasks.
That is the approach we take when you contract us to support your leadership development initiatives in your organization. And that’s why we don’t have a menu of skills for you to pick and choose from in this category. Because we deal with what is really happening.
Our Design Approach
Our programs are not lecture based. All our instructional designs are based on Brain-based Learning methodologies and Experiential Learning as a foundation for maximum transference of learning. Skills taught are evidence or science based, from leadership frameworks such as The Leadership Challenge, Adaptive Leadership, etc, to micro-skills such as negotiation, listening, awareness (yes, awareness is a skill!), foresight, etc.
Here is an idea of what will happen in our partnership:
Stakeholder engagement, Planning and Design
We will be working in partnership with you to design the leadership development progression that will work for your organization in the present and the future. This could include doing an in-depth training needs analysis to running focus group discussions amongst your present leaders and upcoming ones to find out what they really need to level up their leadership game.
Based on the data and eventual learning objectives, we will design the program that is uniquely suited for your organizational needs.
We work with your leaders to create awareness on how your organizational values and their personal values drives their attitude, which in turn drives the way they use the skills effectively. We draw parallels to actual work situations such that they can transfer the application immediately to real life.
We will work with the relevant stakeholders to measure the training effectiveness of the program. This can come in the form of surveys or a series of mini coaching workshops over a short to long term period. This includes supporting your L/T&D function to design the rubrics necessary to create an unbiased measurement for analytics.

COOL STUFF. – Gerauld. The trainer literally know his stuff well, can answer and explain everything for us to satisfaction. Totally earned all our respect. (Thumbs up)
I like the way the program is structured, activity followed by an explanation for the purpose of the activity.
I liked that the program was well organised with a trainer(Gerauld) who was extremely clear with what he was doing. Additionally, facilitation at the end of each activity helps us to learn more.
I’m amazed by how activities tie into the training program that made so much relevance during the debriefing.
– Anonymous feedback
First of all, thank you Gerauld Wong for the fantastic training. I felt that you showed us not just the warmth of a Master Trainer, but also the warmth of a Mentor and Friend. You opened a few insights for me and I am thankful for that.
Here are my 3 takeaways from this training:
- Be nimble and always be open to new ideas on how to make the training as interactive as possible.
- Become a organized trainer even though it does not gel with my personality. I’ve experienced the benefits of this logic system and I will imply it to my work.
- Have fun and always build/maintain relationship before content.
Personally, I enjoyed this Facilitator in Training (Virtual) despite it is an online session which I normally switch off or get very distracted. The connection with the facilitator and participants from across the (..) agencies built up is really something that makes me look forward to every FiT session. Something that I wish to achieve in my own program in future, where by participants enjoy the interactions and look forward to the training sessions.
- Personally, this program had showed me that in this challenging and changing times (Covid19 pandemic), to achieve training excellence (using new platform eg Zoom, Google Classroom, Skype etc. ) , I must continue with my learning, have an attitude that is constantly reflecting, searching for deeper understanding, exploring options, seeking solutions , so I can add meaning to training and imparting knowledge to my colleagues.
- I also enjoyed the program, as it gave me the opportunity to catch up with old, meet new faces (I think I’m the old one in this cohort) and have a chat on their respective roles.
- Did the program meet my expectations? Like Simon Cowell (AGT), a YES for me! Before I start this program, I thought it was just another MOI. When I checked in, I felt that there was collective goal and collective spirit amongst my fellow cohort mates – it resonated with me. Being around like-minded people was incredibly inspiring and I felt connected. This training validates me as a Manager, Coach, Trainer and I’m up-skilled in using Zoom 🙂
Thank you Gerauld! God Bless.
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being so creative and passionate about your sharing. The following are the 3 biggest takeaways from this program.
- I think is a good way to get away from paper and to use more technology in the classroom. I learned about the different tools (ie google doc, Jam board, Zoom, PowerPoint as virtual background, etc) that are available and how engaging this tools is going to be for my virtual class in future.
- I gain better knowledge on the different techniques to conduct a facilitation, especially the 4F Questioning Framework (Facts, Feeling, Finding Future) and David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle (Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptualisation and Active Experimentation).
- This course is refreshing for me, as well as adding new knowledge. The sharing on managing learning disruptions helps me to identify the catalyst for disruption and address the situation appropriately.
Once again, Thank you so much for facilitating such a positive learning environment!
Mind blowing, impactful, a trainer (Gerauld) who uses simple games to portray values very applicable to society
