Since 1998, we have provided on-site and online professional development and personal enrichment classes nationwide to companies, government agencies, schools, and the public. Using current research findings from educators and neuroscientists we show adults how to learn new information more efficiently and effectively. Specifically, we show them how to use their personal learning and thinking style to help them comprehend, retain, and recall new information from any source.
But learning new information is only part of the equation; therefore, we also show adults how to communicate new information effectively with colleagues, team members, supervisors, clients, and vendors to ensure their message is understood and acted on in a timely manner.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT? (see Different)
When adults take a class to acquire new skills, or improve their existing skills, they can feel extraordinary pressure during a 1-day class to learn and retain all the information they need. If the training program last several days, they will have more time to practice their new skills but applying new skills in a classroom is quite different than applying them in a busy work environment. And if adults face project deadlines while they are sitting in a classroom for several days, their attention will be divided between the training content and those project deadlines.
At Target Learning, every on-site training class includes our unique
Extended Instruction Program. This program provides each training participant six months of unlimited online follow-up with their instructor. As a result, participants who need additional help after
the training class can contact their instructor to receive customized
advice based on their personal learning and thinking style, as well as
their specific work situation. Our Extended Instruction Program
also improves the learning efficiency of the participants since they
won't feel the pressure to learn and retain everything during the
on-site portion of the training.
In addition, we provide each participant with a comprehensive workbook that contains all the relevant program strategies with easy-to-apply implementation steps.
We do all of this because we know that adults learn better when they have some control over the learning process, and when they have the tools and support to help them develop their learning and communication skills well into the future. See
