“Transferring knowledge in a different way” is the hallmark of the IMCS Training Academy.
Very often the fact of being sent to a training course evokes the perception of not being good enough (“why do I need to be trained?”) or being forced to change (“will this require me to change my current working method?). Also the fear of failing possible exams, tests … related to training courses (“what if I do not pass”?) causes some reluctancy with participants.
With the IMCS Training Academy, we do away with these negative vibes and make training a pleasant experience by minimizing “learning efforts and change” and maximizing “outcome”.
Our “different” approach can be summarized as follows:
- stimulating creative thinking through information exchange and debates which enhances solution finding and boosts confidence;
- giving autonomy to make choices, decisions and providing guidance to ensure that the expected result is achieved;
- following solution oriented training processes which focus on whether a solution or approach will work under given circumstances, rather than adopting the “right/wrong” principle;
- creating relatedness with the subject and making participants believe that what they do will make a difference;
- identifying and working on subject-related soft skills required for performing to high standards (authority, team spirit, leadership, diplomacy, psychological insight and understanding the effect and consequences of what you are doing).
Throughout the training, and by using various training techniques such as CBT, workshops, simulation and mock scenarios, the candidate’s embedded knowledge will be lifted to a higher level.
The continuous process of challenging, encouraging, steering and guiding candidates together with disclosing the tips and tricks from the trade, allows candidates to build up a profound understanding on matters concerned. In a limited time frame, candidates will acquire the necessary competences and skills to perform in a professional way.
Furthermore, our highly qualified instructors possess a wealth of practical experience which allows them to provide a holistic view on a specific subject and make complexity simple.
Apart from having knowledge of, and information on, the mission to be completed, it should be recognised that satisfactory completion of a task also involves soft skills (authority, diplomacy, psychological insight and understanding the effect and consequences of what you are doing). In order to guarantee excellent performance on site, candidates will also be familiarized with the necessary soft skills through discussions and mock scenarios.
Our “open-minded” approach is further reflected by our IMCS Training Academy Club (click here).
