Better presentations through first class trainings

High-intensity training

People are more successful in changing their routine behaviour when they have the chance to experience successful outcomes stemming from their “new” behaviour. To ensure that participants get the most out of practical exercises, HPS-Intensive-Trainings are usually run by a trainer team: one trainer plus a co-trainer ensure that each participant gets a chance to be assessed via video up to 4 times a day.

100% practical relevance

“Time spent in the seminar saves working time”, as participants can work on their own practical cases, thus saving time by learning and making progress solving their individual cases under the direction of experienced trainers. 

Structured feedback

The most effective feedback is immediate, constructive and delivered point by point. In this way, general assessments about the presenter are avoided. The number of observers is limited and the trainer focuses his feedback on 3-4 specific points. 

Efficient video analysis

The HPS video analysis is painless in the sense that we avoid putting participants in the dreaded position of running the gauntlet. Instead, we facilitate parallel video stations with high tempo of analysis, without the pressure of the group. Thus, participants can take their time to fully comprehend the feedback in a secondary room, alone or, should they wish so, in the company of a coach. During this time, the main room hosts the next presentation. Through the use of this parallel-room system, the practice time is increased to the maximum and the duration of group exercises is dramatically reduced.

[Translate to INT:] HPS Bildungscontrolling - Qualität ist messbar

HPS training audit – Quality is measurable

A training of high quality enables participants to start implementing their knowledge into practice immediately, despite having taken part in a strenuous day of training. And the way that this knowledge is applied to real life is something that is of utmost importance for us at HPS. This is the yardstick by which we measure the success of our trainings and is thus continuously evaluated and analyzed at any expense. The results of these evaluations are the basis for the perpetual improvement of our trainings and guarantee that we are always ahead of the game.

Seminar evaluation immediately after the training

Immediately after the training, we collect the general opinions and impressions of each and every participant. 

Participant surveys 12-24 months after the training

Even after the initial seminar euphoria has worn off, we conduct a quality survey in order to ensure that the teachings of our trainings are sustainable and transferred into practice in the long term.
