COLLABORATIVE DESIGN

From the outset, you and your organization become an integral part of the design process. The subtleties of your team’s dynamics, leadership impact, knowledge strengths/gaps, strategic goals, and operational philosophies are all used to inform the content and to ensure real value and results. We also involve program instructors in all preliminary discussions and assessments to ensure they gain first-hand insights from this rich exploratory process. The ultimate program design draws from a blend of learning approaches—such as diagnostics/self-assessments, business simulations, company-specific scenarios, projects, peer-reviews, coaching, and more.

WORLD-CLASS INSTRUCTION

Our instructors are international experts in their fields. Hand-picked to fit your organization’s needs, they bring the academic wisdom and practical experiences that will most effectively evolve the needed capacity within your organization. Their advanced instructional styles awaken hidden potential and challenge your team with new perspectives—eliciting in participants a deepened understanding of their professional roles and responsibilities.

Group work, opportunity recognition, and projects are tailored specifically to your organization’s experiences and challenges. Perhaps you need to build critical leadership competencies, adopt more sustainable business practices, build cultural intelligence in an increasingly diverse workplace, or help individuals better understand the risks, impacts, and long-term viability of complex business decisions—for all desired outcomes, our instructors bring a powerful mix of deep knowledge and real world experience.

SUSTAINED IMPACT

Impact is our highest priority. A custom approach allows us to collaboratively design learning that will have a sustained impact at every level of your organization. Above and beyond the practical topics discussed, our programs establish a shared vocabulary, knowledge base, and memory of experiences—which become the fertile ground for ongoing, positive change, and the basis for a new culture of learning. Companies participating in our custom programs report increased productivity, job satisfaction, and employee retention, as well as improved strategic problem solving. They notice more thoughtful and insightful decision-making, right down to the operational level. Above all, the practical and applied nature of our programs has resulted in participant projects prompting critical new thinking within a company or being used to test new ideas and opportunities. To talk about ways to bring these benefits to your organization, please contact us for a consultation.

WORLD-CLASS INSTRUCTION

As an accredited higher-learning institution, we are uniquely able to offer not only career-path driven learning with real organizational impact but also academic qualifications and rewards for your employees. From customized certificates to diplomas laddering into a corporate EMBA, academic recognition can be a strong vehicle for attracting new employees, developing high-potential leaders, and retaining existing talent.

For example, to create a customized diploma you would work with us to develop a customized version of our general Graduate Diploma in Business Administration. Courses would be specifically chosen based on relevancy for your company's strategic goals, and designed to address company-specific issues. Each course usually consists of six full days of instruction, either as two three-day sessions or three two-day sessions. Sessions are typically spaced three to four weeks apart. In some cases, there may be an exam in addition to class time, and there is always the option for online delivery. Learn more about Beedie's unique collaboration with Teck Resources.
