    Reach your customers live…anytime, anywhere.

    The shift to live virtual training has accelerated and you need to keep up. Through our virtual facilitation workshops, iQue Group can help your training team, people managers and employees get more out of your virtual learning programs. We offer workshops in two key areas:

    Virtual Training for Presenters and Producers – In this workshop (delivered as an on-site one-day program or through four, virtual sessions of two hours each), your staff will learn how to take their current facilitation experience and apply those skills to virtual facilitation. The program includes four modules:

    Best Practices for the Virtual Trainer
    Presentation Skills for the Virtual Trainer
    Instructional Design Best Practices (for designing virtual training sessions)
    How to Produce/Host an Event

    Getting to Know Adobe Connect – Using Connect Meeting provides the knowledge and hands-on practice facilitators need to create and host Connect meetings. Your facilitators will improve their skills in areas such as scheduling meetings, displaying content in meetings, using audio and video during meetings, customizing the meeting room, interacting with participants and recording meetings, while learning best practices for hosting meetings and managing associated content. The course also includes optional content for creating and managing Connect events.

  • Ethical Leadership

    Lead through ethical business practices.

    The subject of ethics in the business world can be handled in a variety of ways. At one end of the spectrum, it can be a simplistic approach limited to a focus on specific behaviors based on a company's unique policies. At the other end of the spectrum, an ethics discussion can encompass a macro view that aligns your corporate values with individual decision making and behavior and the external world. At iQue Group, we look at both.

    Ethics is a key component of any leader's development within an organization. iQue Group’s two-hour instructor-led course focuses on the place of ethics in an organization and how the standard of ethics is part of your organization's brand. Interactive, hypothetical case studies provoke deep discussion leading to a better understanding of ethical leadership.

  • Leading & Managing Change

    Lead through a time of change and uncertainty.

    Leading and managing change can make a real difference in getting the business results you set out to achieve with change.

    iQue Group’s Leading & Managing change workshop is built on solid and practical change principles and techniques, yet customized to the specific needs of your population. The program can be delivered all at once or in brief modules – virtually or face-to-face – to deliver maximum value to your organization. During the workshop participants learn about three types of change (Organization, Team and Individual) along with practical strategies for managing through change and gaining awareness into change barriers and how to overcome them. The purpose is to achieve desired business outcomes of change initiatives by understanding how to leverage change management approaches, help leaders adopt techniques for approaching change and implement a concrete change approach to drive individual and/or team change.
