SOFT SKILLS, HARD IMPACT
As the pace of change in the workplace accelerates, an individual’s ability to engage, collaborate, communicate, manage conflict, and lead becomes more important than ever. Data from Korn Ferry shows managers with strong soft skills can boost their team’s productivity by as much as 30%. Successful teams need to be agile, creative, and embrace a learning mindset. These traits start at the top with leadership.
HOW ARE YOU BUILDING YOUR NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS?
Our Talent Development learning programs help companies upskill their team members, preparing them to handle those challenging situations that inevitably arise in today's workplace with poise, confidence, and competence.
WHY IT MATTERS
“Overall, social skills—such as persuasion, emotional intelligence and teaching others—will be in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills, such as programming or equipment operation and control. Content skills (which include technology literacy and active learning), cognitive abilities (such as creativity and mathematical reasoning) and process skills (such as active listening and critical thinking) will be a growing part of the core skills requirements for many industries.”

WHAT WE DELIVER
Our proprietary D-CAF™ (Dynamic Instruction + Coaching + Application + Feedback) learning methodology is the cornerstone of the pelotonRPM approach.
We offer live video-based instruction that incorporates leading-edge streaming technology to drive an exceptional and engaging learning experience. Live classes allow us to be very agile in our topics and content delivery.
One-to-One coaching is a critical component of pelotonRPM’s D-CAF approach. Coaching allows (a) us to deliver a highly personalized learning experience and (b) the learner to ask questions and fill knowledge gaps.
Impactful learning cannot happen without application. Each of our learning programs include an application exercise or simulation that ensures our learners have a chance to ‘practice what we teach’ in a realistic way.
After the application/simulation exercise, we deliver feedback to each learner via a personalized video-call and a written report, discussing strengths and areas for improvement. Learners also have an opportunity to get additional coaching.
WHY IT WORKS
Our learning programs are a perfect balance between live, ultra high-quality virtual learning experiences and immersive application exercises that instill genuine skills-building. If you are looking for an impactful way to upskill your team members, we have exactly what you need.
Our Talent Management learning programs are designed to help our learners become more effective leaders by developing skills such as active listening, conflict management, collaboration, critical thinking, empathy, and others. Here’s are some examples.
DELIVERING TOUGH FEEDBACK
This module gives the learner the opportunity to navigate a live, simulated scenario in which they need to gather information about an employee’s performance and then communicate some negative feedback in a direct yet empathetic way.
Conversations with employees about compensation can be incredibly challenging. This scenario requires the learner to communicate a year end bonus number to an important member of the team that may not match their expectations.
THE PROMOTION TALK. MAYBE NEXT YEAR...
It is the end of the year and time to speak with a member of the team who has been expecting a significant promotion. The learner needs to explain the company’s change of plans and lay out a clear path for advancement going forward.
POLITICS IN THE WORKPLACE. THE DANGER ZONE.
The learner needs to manage a challenging situation in which a heated political disagreement between two employees has negatively impacted the dynamics on their team. This scenario requires the leaner to actively listen, manage conflict, and mediate tactfully.
RETAINING A TALENTED TEAM MEMBER
The learner is approached by a very talented member of their team who is considering leaving to pursue a new job opportunity. They need to listen, understand their decision-making process, and communicate a compelling case that staying may be the employee’s best course of action.
MANAGING EFFECTIVELY IN THE ERA OF REMOTE WORK
In today’s hybrid workplace, the unique demands of managing remote employees are very real. This scenario requires the learner to deal with situation in which remote team members feel disadvantaged relative to their in-office peers.
Our agile content creation process and live learning delivery model allows us to create custom scenarios that fit specific business needs. If your organization is facing unique challenges, let’s talk about how we can help.
