Remote training program

The training program consists of five different modules, each of which has three remote sessions. The length of a session is one hour. We recommend having the sessions every week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, thus giving the program a total length of five weeks.

The training is developed for both employees and managers. The last module is specifically targeted for managers and team leaders. Maximum amount of participants in the training is 60 people, and depending on the organization we might recommend a smaller group size. The training can also be offered for individual teams.
