New technology and information systems along with the increasing internationalisation of many economic sectors are putting us into contact with people coming from a different cultural background.
Not only has this increased the demand for language training, but at the same time the need of specific skills.
Confronted with a different culture, with different mind sets, ways of perceiving and behaving the unprepared person is likely to encounter difficulties.

ApprendoInprogress®

Self-driven, sustainable learning in 5 steps: simple, fast and fun

How to keep up with fast paced change?
 
Organizations need to be alert and flexible to compete and require a highly qualified and performing workforce, able not only to keep up with ongoing change and continuous improvement, but playing a proactive part in it.
However, in our experience, there is no such thing as a personal trainer who assists you whenever the need arises, telling you exactly which skills you need and what to do. It’s up you in the first place to take care of your personal and professional development.  
We created ApprendoInprogress® to make self-driven learning simple, fast and fun.
ApprendoInprogress® is an essential part of our training approach. While acquiring new job related skills and knowledge, participants learn how to assess their individual training needs, how to develop skills autonomously and through reciprocal coaching and knowledge sharing across the organization.
Every individual has unique traits, knowledge and skills. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning. Therefore, we start by stocktaking of what you already know and do, and of your favorite strategies and skills.
Do you like to think things over and over again before you make a decision or take action? Do you take the bull by the horns and decide from your gut? Do you rather try out how it works than read the user’s manual? Is it essential for you to get the big picture?
