Maximising your Development Investment

Highly Personalised & Bespoke Development Programmes

A tailored development programme for a select group of people whose performance and development is essential to the business. Applications, formats and duration can all be personalised to your exact requirement.

Develops Performance and Maximises Potential

An intensive programme that balances the focus on the delegates’ performance in the present, whilst unlocking the potential for the future to ensure a high return on investment for delegates and organisations.

High Level of Workplace Application Encouraging Cultural Shift

A high investment return cannot be realised unless delegates apply their improved behaviour & skills on a day to day basis in the workplace for the long term. Put simply, a PDW Academy experience maximises the likelihood of this being a reality.

How it Works

Regular and Varied ‘Touch points’

Academies provide a ‘transformational’ learning and development platform for organisations to invest in small numbers of high performers or high potentials.

The PDW Experiential workshop model forms the bedrock of the learning approach, coupled with interactive bite sized sessions, mentoring and on line support tools. Topics and applications are completely bespoke to each client but typically cover a broad range of behavioural areas that assists delegates to be more rounded and business performers.

A Genuine Development ‘Journey’

An Academy programme takes delegates on a genuine development ‘journey’, enabling them to build skills, behaviour and confidence in ‘layers’ so that their experiences can be applied effectively into the workplace as they go.

Academy groups report incredible levels of commitment, engagement and motivation during the programme and significantly increased performance and results both in terms of their core role and their career progression.

Driving Cultural Shift

Organisations often report seeing a genuine positive change in their culture as a result of the groundswell of people adopting long term, congruent behavioural improvements and capability.

The relatively small numbers going through an Academy programme have a progressively bigger impact on the majority through their own leadership, management and internal influencing endeavours that results in genuine cultural shift.
