Authentic employee engagement is our people-centered approach to training and communication that integrates the needs of people, the possibilities of learning methodologies, and the business needs of our clients.
Authentic employee engagement is a deeply human pursuit that addresses the unique needs that we all have, but which are overlooked by more conventional training and communication practices.
It relies on employees to be aware of their own biases, understanding of the contextual big picture, and meaningfully connected to the needs of the business.
This approach, which Applied Learning calls authentic employee engagement, is what makes Applied Learning solutions powerfully differentiated.
Applied Learning’s pursuit of authentic employee engagement has evolved during our 17 years of working with hundreds of leading companies and seeing results with millions of client employees.
We create authentic employee engagement by expertly integrating
visual thinking, meaningful conversations, and experiential process.
Visual thinking is the way people see and personalize information.
Meaningful conversation is how individuals connect with one another at a deep level, and create a shared willingness to adopt change.
Experiential process is a guided path to ensuring that desired outcomes are achieved on a consistent basis with every group of people.
We Believe People Are Visual Learners. We Create Powerful Visuals to Make Complex Ideas Simple.
Visuals help us retrieve and remember information. Much of our sensory cortex is devoted to vision and studies have shown that the use of visuals can increase comprehension, decrease learning time, and significantly improve retention.
"A visual makes sense to everybody despite ethnic, cultural, and geographic differences."
We Believe Authentic Conversations Produce Employee Openness and Emotional Connections.
There is power in conversations. It can reveal common ground and open hearts and minds. We believe conversations are the invisible driver of workplace culture. Conversations build relationships, stimulate behavior change and improve productivity.
"Conversations that are authentic and meaningful define the quality of relationships you have with employees."
We Believe Experiential Process Achieves Higher Levels of Engagement and a Willingness to Change.
We define experiential learning as the use of multiple senses to contrast personal beliefs and assumptions with external realities. We believe active involvement by learners is key to critical thinking, problem solving and personal reflection.
"Individuals involved in a 'hands-on' learning process generate better insights and feel more connected to your business."
