What will I get out of it?
This is a very common (and valid) question asked by KAI practitioners when invited to attend. The workshop topics include:
• in-depth coverage of sub-traits and their uses
• use of KAI team & pair
• new case studies
• suspect scores
• the paradox of structure
• problem A & B
• answering difficult client questions
• the presentation & demonstration of KAI to all levels, including development of your existing presentation materials
• methods of avoiding the creation of resistors to change
Plus, sessions on using KAI for:
• individual development, and group training, to give personal awareness as part of the management of diversity
• the training of managers and key teams as part of the management of change
• the enhancement of group cohesion and effectiveness
• leadership development
• problem-solving team building and development
• identifying organizational issues, such as cognitive climate, the pendulum of change, the use of agents of change, cognitive bridgers, plus idea generation & adoption.
• current uses: consultancy (selection & assessment); counselling & stress management; idea generation
The Advanced Workshop will enable you to:
• be up to date with current research and use of KAI relevant to your field of work (the advanced workshop is carefully tailored to individual delegate requirements)
• present and promote KAI to clients and superiors, peers and subordinates within your organization
• detect and confidently handle suspect scores
• identify vulnerable respondents and deal with them correctly
• give in-depth feedback using all 4 KAI scores (that is, total and three sub-traits)
• use the feedback booklet more fully and be able to answer any client questions arising from it
• identify people under cognitive stress and give them in-sight to reduce this stress
• structure teams to maximize co-operation, and/or efficiency, and/or productivity.
• identify the cognitive climate of an organization and thereby improve the interface between selected individuals and its structure.
Advanced Workshop Networks
Many Advanced KAI Practitioners find the opportunity to discuss and share ideas (and problems) with other like-minded individuals one of the most valuable outcomes of attending the Workshop. Most remain in contact with their fellow delegates after the Workshop and continue to enjoy the benefits of informal collaboration and support.
