Each online workshop offered in this Specialty Series is designed to showcase an original application of Genuine Contact as developed by Genuine Contact professionals. Genuine Contact provides a blended, synergistic, holistic approach to change and to leadership. It is not about a big quick splash, but rather about developing the skills, knowledge, and capacity to sustain the ongoing organizational change necessary to thrive in today’s constantly changing, complex times.

Each short workshop has been designed to teach you hands-on applications of holistic ways of working with leaders and organizations. Workshops in this series will offer you ways to develop the skills, knowledge, and capacity to thrive in change that you can begin implementing in your work immediately.

Evaluating Impacts to Improve Results

Evaluating Impacts for Improved Results

Online | February 3, 2021 | 9:00 am - 12:30 pm EST / 15:00-18:30 CET

With this workshop, you as a leader and/or facilitator will get an understanding of how to evaluate impacts from change efforts such as trainings or workshops and how that improves results. We share a simple framework and tools for how to put it to practice in easy and life-nurturing ways.

In this workshop, you will

  • Learn about the benefits of measuring impacts from development work in organizations
  • Learn about the framework Kirkpatrick 4 levels and how it can be used the Genuine Contact way for measuring impacts of a development process
  • Learn to use this approach in a holistic way – before, during, and after the intervention
  • Understand how this practice increases the ROE (return on expectations)
  • Hear stories of how we have successfully used the method in different organizations
  • Get an opportunity to reflect on your next steps

This is a highly experiential workshop where you will have opportunities to connect your learning to your unique situation and share together with others.

I have used this approach to measure impacts in 100’s of development activities over the last 15 years. I find it contributes to clarity in preparations with my sponsor, great reflections, and learning with participants and sponsors both after a training/workshop as well as in follow up meetings later. It’s like getting a specified receipt when you buy something – you know what you got.

Join us learning about measuring impacts to increase results!

  • From ‘Bored’ Room to ‘Board’ Room with Tulika Mehra and Sapna Moudgil, March 24, 2021: ‘Change is the only constant’, is a familiar phrase. ‘Change Management’ is another common management term. After having literally grown up with these phrases, our entire worldview turned upside down when we learned from Birgitt Williams, ‘change cannot be managed, we can only learn to navigate through it’. Using NIIT Foundation's organizational transformation journey as a case study, we will offer you ways to navigate through change by using the simple, yet profound framework from the Genuine Contact Program.
