On-Site Training for Your Organization

Here’s how we bring the power of Perceptual Intelligence™ to work teams and entire companies.

The Perceptual Intelligence™ Training Process

It starts by understanding the two phases of the transformation process, the intensive phase and the extensive phase.

Phase 1: Intensive Transformation

Duration: One Week

In this one-week phase of learning transformation, participants get an initial literacy of the principles and practices of perceptual intelligence, and start putting them to work right away. The breakthrough is immediate, changes happen instantly.

Phase 2: Extensive Transformation

Duration: One Year

In this one-year phase of learning transformation, participants get several methods of extensive reinforcement and application, moving beyond literacy into mastery of the material and application of perceptual intelligence to solve key business problems. 

Step 1: Preview Event

Before the Phase 1 Intensive Transformation begins, we lead an on-site Preview Event for 5-7 qualified decision makers.

This is a half-day training, usually scheduled from 8am to 1pm with a working lunch, that helps decision-makers better understand the concept of Perceptual IntelligenceTM, how it makes change easier, and how to use to make better decisions, empower workers, build alignment in work teams and resolve conflict.

During the Preview Event, decision makers identify several strategic ways to put Perceptual IntelligenceTM to work in the organization.

Step 2: Intensive Training

After the preview event, we recommend the leadership team immediately begin the intensive transformation phase for themselves, scheduling three half days of initial training, during which they’ll get a full understanding of Perceptual IntelligenceTM, the four prime perceptions, and a solid strategy for solving business problems within their own group and for the departments they lead.

The intensive phase is three half-days live, on-site, offering 15 hours of live training. We like to see this done in back-to-back days, but will sometimes skip a day to accommodate each client’s unique constraints.

The goal is to complete the 15 hours of training in one week…without overloading participants. In our experience, afternoon trainings are not effective, and neither are whole day trainings. So the usual 3-day schedule is 8am to 1pm, allowing workers to focus fully but not intrude fully on their daily schedule.

These live half-day trainings range in size from 10-100 people, and can be done strategically, meaning, two departments who are having difficulty working together can take the training together. The goal is to fully ingest and understand the power of Perceptual IntelligenceTM and four prime perceptions that profoundly boost team health and performance.

Step 3: Extensive Training

The first week is just the beginning because that’s the nature of learning. It takes consistent effort to grow, solve business problems, get results. Yes, there’s tremendous immediate results in the first three days of training itself, but those immediate results don’t compare to the greater results from extensive learning and application.

For example, ever been at a training and heard how it was done, watched how it was done, went back to work, went to do it, and realized, I don’t know how it’s done? That’s the learning process. We get introduced to ideas, maybe we believe we can put them to work, but when the actual process of doing it starts, we realize, we need help.

So, when the intensive phase of learning and initial literacy is done, each group starts a one-year process of cementing in and applying the training to solve specific business problems in real time.

Each participant in the live training is enrolled in the digital course and asked to take the lessons on their own, on a pace of about one lesson per week. Teams get together in 1-hour and 2-hour internal seminars, watching specific digital course lessons together, again with the idea of putting them to work, pushing to mastery of the material and solving specific business problems.

We suggest each participant learn at a pace of at least one lesson per week and discuss insights for fifteen to thirty minutes in weekly team meetings. We ask leaders to use our network of consultants and coaches to work weekly with individuals and teams, live and by phone, in group meetings and one-on-one, to reinforce the learning.

It’s a custom-tailored approach to extend the transforming power of Perceptual IntelligenceTM into every part of an organization’s culture.

Step 4: Repeat from Team to Team

Once a department or an executive team has started the process, we recommend other departments and teams start the same process. The goal is to create a critical mass of application within an organization that eventually transforms the culture. 

Profound, Significant Empowerment

Teaches how to optimize emotions, motivations, and behavior.

Optimal Decisions and Alignment

Helps leaders and teams paddle in the best direction.

Transforming Happiness and Morale

Builds happy people who get things done and get better together.

What is Perceptual IntelligenceTM and How Does It Help?

Perceptual IntelligenceTM training creates profound improvements in organizational culture, including deep empowerment, better decisions and alignment, higher morale and lower turnover, effective conflict resolution, and a hundred unexpected things. It’s a root-level solution to serious people problems, a way to move people and organizations to their highest in health and productivity.
The first step to Perceptual IntelligenceTM is to understand the nature of perception, to know what perception is and how it works. This includes the way we characterize things and situations, then the way we evaluate them as good and bad. It includes sensory experience, but also imagination and memory. It involves perceptual limits and the “lock and block” effect created by those limits. Finally, it includes views of self, others, situations, and life.
Once we understand the nature of perception, we look at the dynamics of perception, emotion, motivation, and behavior. We learn to identify categories of “See,” “Feel,” and “Act,” and see how these categories automatically influence each other. Instead of hacking the branches in a futile effort to change emotions and behaviors, we strike the root, following the smart change strategy of starting with perception.

Once the foundational ideas are solid, we start optimizing corporate culture and every area of life by embedding four prime perceptions: views of self and others that improve the way we work in organizations and live our lives. Changes that seemed almost impossible before we understood this power are now profoundly easier
