New work spaces: how to choose the right training room?

 

The training market is facing multiple challenges. Technology affects our habits which means that our training methods have to evolve simultaneously: e-learning, collaborative learning, hackathon, brainstorming sessions…

The formats and stakes are transforming and the new training methods are numerous:

– Co-active Coaching: https://www.expertsenform.com/experts/andra-morosi/

– Gamification of the training modules: Lego Serous Play, playful processes… https://www.expertsenform.com/experts/mylene-berrebi/ – Design Thinking https://www.expertsenform.com/experts/betty-hohmann-conseil/

What about the work spaces which receive the training modules? What kind of layouts will meet your training objectives ?

Spaces that enable creativity and innovation

As a source of growth and improvement as well as a competitive edge, innovation is a key condition for the survival of certain companies. In mature, more or less dematerialised economies, change management and the ability to evolve are essential. So, how can you gather your talents in appropriate spaces which will enable you to move towards ever greater creativity and innovation?

Inspiring and unique settings to get creative

They incorporate seamlessly design objects within out of ordinary architecture. Through their colours, fabrics and shapes, training spaces can sometimes speak for themselves:

– If you want to take a break from the city chaos and enjoy the fresh air: gather your team in a listed castle. The history contained in these wonderful places will spark the participant’s imagination for sure.

– Town houses have the advantage of being easily accessible. They are ideal to gather small think tanks in a historical and central setting.

– Training rooms decorated with design furniture according to a theme designed to encourage reflection.

While an original work environment can sometimes bring ideas to life, some prefer to choose functional venues in order to meet specific goals. For instance, when an automotive company needs to train its international sales teams to sell a new vehicle, the stakes are high! See how Nissan gathers its sales teams (link: Nissan business case)

Large fully adjustable spaces to allow exchanges

Loft, open space, patio… The coworking phenomenon is taking such a magnitude for a reason. It reflects a need for collaboration in the training modules. Top-down information is

losing popularity in favour of the development of collective intelligence. New sharing formats are thus appearing, such as the “world café”, which consists in conducting a kind of massive brainstorming onsite or at a distance. The goal is to develop a collective intelligence on themes such as team management, project management or emotional control. In order to meet these training objectives, fully open and large spaces are recommended. Indeed, the free circulation of bodies facilitates the sharing of knowledge, energy and ideas.

The risk of gathering participants in large open spaces could be to lose them in places that are disproportionate to the number of people attending your training sessions. To compensate for this, you can choose between many solutions such as removable walls, fully adjustable rooms and tailor-made propositions to accompany all kind of training requests.
