Beyond training.

Let’s create connected & highly effective
leadership development journeys.

How to find out what’s truly necessary?

To excel in today’s business surroundings, leaders need immediate and precisely fitting learning impulses. And they need long-term development perspectives. At the same time, any content, any module needs to be in close relation to current business challenges. Otherwise we risk to waste time and money on “nice-to-have” development initiatives.

So, let’s talk about: What do you need to achieve as an organisation? And how exactly do you get there?

Connection

The more connection, the more impact is possible. For leadership development journeys that means: isolated standalone measures can’t have a place in competitive, innovative and successful organizations. At Think Beyond, we specialise in connecting the dots of development initiatives. For maximum impact throughout the whole organization. And real business results. Measures contributing to that goal are stakeholder involvement, networks of development and mutual learning support, cross-department cooperation. And many more. Want to know details? Get in touch!

high efficiency.

What would be possible if 100 years of transfer know-how would start working in favor of your development initiative? At Think Beyond, we have a crush on learning transfer. We even wrote a book about it with a savvy transfer researcher. And we have more than 20 years of experience in making learning stick. For sustainable change of behavior. And development measures that go from satisfaction to trackable change. Are you ready? Let’s go.

business need

What is the most pressing pain currently? What is missing in order to be successful as an organization?

Let’s find out by thorough questionnaires and quick and effective board workshops.

2. Define success-critical behavior

How exactly to your people need to behave in order to solve current challenges? And how would we see that we’re successful?

Based on the Kirkpatrick methodoly, we define behavior, performance drivers and mission-critical milestones together.

3. Derive the perfect

process design

Which learning format supports the expected behavior the best way possible? Who needs to interact and learn with whom?

Based on top-notch learning research and 20 years of design experience, we set up an effective learning process. 

4. Create content &
rock delivery

An experienced team of facilitators and leadership expert around the globe brings to the (virtual) classroom what your people need in a given moment.

Experience, emotion, relevance – we know how to rock learning sessions and leadership workshops.

meaningful adaption
