Facilitate business-critical leadership development programs on Howspace, the social learning platform for businesses.
Instead of making your future leaders cram books, online courses, and articles on their own, invite them to collaborate on real-life leadership tasks together. Howspace allows the leadership program participants to learn from each other and reflect on the journey with their peers.
Because leadership skills are best learned in the flow of work, you’ll want to combine intensive training days with on-the-job learning. Howspace allows your future leaders to collaborate before, during, and after in-person sessions to create practical skills that stick.
No two people are the same. That’s why as a facilitator, you’re able to create customized assignments to each of your leadership program participants. The platform also allows you to send automated reminders and track each participants’ progress so that you can spend more time on coaching and supporting the participants.
Instead of using email to distribute learning content and a material bank for storing it, you can invite all your participants into a shared workplace that allows you to collaborate, communicate, and share video, text, and pictures with each other. This way, all your leadership program materials and discussions live in one place, and one place only. The participants will only be notified of the discussions and assignments in which they’re expected to contribute.
Your leadership program likely has a beginning, some milestones in between, and an end. Whatever structure you’ve created for the program, you’re free to replicate on Howspace. As a facilitator, you can either copy-and-paste existing pages and elements from previous workspaces, or create completely new ones with Howspace’s intuitive drag-and-drop editor.
Howspace makes it easy for the leadership program participants to reach you and the rest of the learning community. You can use the platform to automate reminders, answer the most commonly asked questions, and send out assignments. Additionally, you can use the appointment setting widget to allow the participants to book individual coaching sessions from your calendar.
Instead of having to set aside time for documentation, you can sit back and relax as the participants document their learnings, findings, and discussions on the go. Never again will you feel like the sole owner of an official report. Instead, your shared workspace acts as a living document that helps the participants commit to the process. You can also collect participant feedback on Howspace, either after the course or through an automated pulse survey. It’s up to you who gets to see the feedback: just you and the other facilitators — or all the participants.
“Leadership development always requires a strong human touch. With Howspace, we are looking to add a blended learning element into our highly regarded programs, also enabling social learning. We want to increase the impact of our leadership Quests by increasing involvement before, during and after learning, to sustain learning.”
