When you participate in a live, interactive workshop at Basileia, the workshop is embedded in a larger process to ensure impact in the workplace.
We have found that the likelihood of impact is much higher when the participant
(a) prepares for the session beforehand,
(b) applies and practices the learnings from the session afterward, and
(c) has an opportunity for feedback and accountability around their learning:
Before each workshop session, participants are asked to access preparatory materials on a private web page, including handouts to download, preparatory activities, reading assignments, videos, etc. Typically, this preparation will take about 20-30 minutes. By engaging in the core concepts beforehand, participants can engage more interactively during the session itself.
After each session, participants are asked to apply the key concepts from the session to their own workplace environment using specific activity worksheets as guidance.
Each participant is invited to attend a monthly facilitated group practice session where they can ask for support on their individual challenges, ask questions, do role plays, etc. to support their learning.
FEEDBACK and MUTUAL ACCOUNTABILITY
Each participant is paired with another participant who will be their “Accountability Buddy” with whom they are asked to meet weekly for about 15-20 minutes so that they can give feedback and support to each other regarding the completed activity worksheets, reviewing key concepts and applying the learnings in the workplace.
As a means of fostering self- and mutual accountability, each participant is asked to email their completed activity worksheet to the facilitator and to their Accountability Buddy at least 24 hours before the next session begins. Additionally, participation in the sessions and in accountability buddy meetings is tracked and displayed on the private web page.
LEARNING SUPPORT AFTER THE WORKSHOP
After the workshop, participants have these added resources to support their continued learning and application of the learning content:
