Skills Development Program
At Calleam our goal is to help people develop the knowledge and skills needed to deliver successful projects. To that end we provide training, mentoring, coaching and support that covers the full learning journey from foundation level up to advanced expert. Recognizing that traditional classroom training has its limitations, our unique three-tiered training method adapts the teaching style to match the level of experience or need.
Starting with our foundational training (tier 1) we provide people with the basic knowledge of Project Management practices and how projects are initiated, planned and then guided towards successful outcomes. Focusing on terminology, process, tools and techniques we have the training to equip our students with a broad base of knowledge that covers both formal and agile approaches to Project Management. Setting a solid basis of knowledge our classroom based tier one training helps people develop their knowledge all the way from beginner to professional certification through the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
Our tier 2 “transitional” level shifts the focus from building knowledge to developing skills. Using a role model and group coaching based approach we help participants assess their own strengths and weaknesses as leaders and help them use their knowledge in practical application. Recognizing that knowledge needs to be applied, we help people realize their potential and help provide the support that bridges classroom learning into achievements in the modern workplace.
Our tier 3 “professional mastery” level uses one-on-one coaching focused on the student’s own projects to help people master the skills. Helping people optimize their performance and achieve their personal goals our tier 3 coaching puts you in the driver’s seat and allows you to direct the training in the directions you want to go. While some schools believe the classroom is all you need, Calleam’s unique three-tier approach recognizes the reality of how people learn. We aim to deliver value that is manifest through the achievements of the students we’ve helped to train.
