Workshops and seminars that really make a discernible difference to the work habits of participants tend to provide an experience that incorporates new learnings while validating why past behavioral techniques have worked for them. It is not content or substance of curriculum alone or the intellectual capacity of participants, but rather the integration of the learning process and delivery that are key variables to improving performance.
The Halen Group specializes in action simulation based on real operational examples and experience responding to a variety of situationally relevant venues.
Instructors endeavor to deliver high quality competency based programs that are anchored in “best behavioral practices.” The challenge of global problem solving skills is that they require the “behavioral intelligence” necessary to navigate through diverse and difficult emotional and social situations. Every performance study ever conducted confirms that it is practice that makes skills better. Therefore the highlighted skills have to be complementary to past experience yet applicable to everyday life for observation and practice.
The programs described on the following pages emphasize the prevailing framework of social and emotional intelligence essential to selecting a judicious menu of approaches (whether it be anger or caring, questioning or conciliation) to decision making and influencing of people and situations. It is this “behavioral intelligence” that is at the core of any effective interactional curriculum. It strives to go beyond a mindset mentality to fully appreciates divergent interests, is open to viable options, and continually seeks and provides clarity of intent.
