How to develop your business? Develop your people!

How to develop your business? Develop your people!

It’s in almost every job vacancy text. Great opportunities for personal development. Everybody knows that a company’s biggest asset is the people that work there. Some know it but don’t act upon it, others know it and try to do something about it. A training budget, in-house training days or a personal development program. In fact, I was lucky to enjoy this gift from my employers as well. But how effective are those development programs really?
The honest answer: I had some great trainings and also some trainings where I can mainly remember the after drinks, but in both cases it is questionable whether the organization really experienced the benefits..  
At Bricklayers, this is where we see it going wrong. We believe that training should lead to shared benefits. For both your people and your organization!
Therefore we always structure our trainings around a clearly defined business goal. Your people learn new tools and approaches to solve your challenge.
We offer trainings in Lean Six Sigma, Team composition and Team communication patterns.
