Unlike informational training techniques that rely on classroom learning, experiential training focuses more on the APPLICATION of learned skills. By providing training that emphasizes simulation and experience over theory turns employee development into a more practical and rewarding process. It can also be defined specifically as learning through insights and reflection. Most experiential learning experiences will use a hands-on approach and are shifting their focus from the outcome from facts and figures, to the development of practical skills.
To achieve maximum results, Top Team often combines training providing both theoretical insight (by means of classroom training) and experiential training that will create personal and team change. In particular Outdoor‐based programs offer training in a fresh and motivating setting and tend to eliminate many of the role conflicts from the day‐to‐day work setting, and emphasize many of the interpersonal skills so important in today′s work setting.
Here is an example of an interactive breakfast seminar on innovation and creativity in the workplace, designed by Top Team, which combines classroom-style training with experiential learning. This particular event was carried out in association with the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam, British University Vietnam and PublicisOne (Vietnam).
Key note speakers included Lukasz Roszczyc, Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors of PublicisOne (Vietnam) and Dr. Declan Bannon, Academic Researcher and Senior Lecturer at the British University of Vietnam.
The event included creative challenges for the participants, designed by Top Team. View this video to see how the teams have completed their challenges.
