The 60–Minute Active Training Series offers targeted learning solutions designed around the Active Training method pioneered by Mel Silberman. Each title in the series focuses on a core interpersonal or team–related skill and can be facilitated in the workplace, or as part of a formal training program.
Active Training is one of the most significant learning methods to emerge in the last thirty years. The effectiveness of the method is due in large part to the connections made between learning and participant′s own, personal experience. It′s an approach that enhances learning transfer by motivating participants to immediately apply what they learn back in the workplace.
"In less time than it takes to go out to lunch, participants gain valuable knowledge, master practical techniques, and acquire skills immediately applicable to personal or professional situations. Practical, participative, producing results what more could any trainer or performance–improvement technologist want?"
