Conducting workshops, virtually

Do you lead workshops, train people in companies?

Most large companies nowadays use online cooperation tools. Video conferences are now part of our daily lives. They also have LMSs (e-Learning Management Systems) to train their employees online.

However, many individual trainers and smaller companies still lead workshops in physical meetings rooms, thus being unable to train people across regions. There are many tools for online collaboration, for video conferencing, but the trick is to combine them effectively in order to train people online in an engaging way. You can use Skype or Skype for Business, to talk, see each other and share your screen. You can also use Webex or Zoom, which enables participants to hand over the control of their own computer to a distant participant. The technology is there.

The challenge though comes when there are several people in the meeting room and participants scattered around the world via video conferences. One trick we found useful (for our own team) is to have everybody participate via their own computer with their own webcam. Even the people who are together in a same meeting room in a same location! Thus, there is no effect of a group vs. individuals. Everybody is on the same foot. Everybody can see clearly the other participants, as individuals.

Coaching is good, actually required!

Success

As a young company, we are convinced that coaching is not only good but actually absolutely necessary to succeed.

One of our very first steps was to constitute a Board of Advisors. This helped us tremendously!

Without them, we would not be where we are now.

Thanks to our great coach Urs!

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity Insurance

Have you considered your exposure to cyber risks?

„Cybersecurity insurance is designed to mitigate losses from a variety of cyber incidents, including data breaches, business interruption, and network damage. A robust cybersecurity insurance market could help reduce the number of successful cyber attacks by: (1) promoting the adoption of preventative measures in return for more coverage; and (2) encouraging the implementation of best practices by basing premiums on an insured’s level of self-protection. Many companies forego available policies, however, citing as rationales the perceived high cost of those policies, confusion about what they cover, and uncertainty that their organizations will suffer a cyber attack. In recent years, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has engaged key stakeholders to address this emerging cyber risk area.“

INGAGE’s „Horse“ game

„Think differently“

You can prepare the game this way:

1. Print the following picture (you can download it below in this page)

2, Then, cut it along the dotted lines, as indicated.

3. Without bending nor folding any further, you try to organize the 3 pieces of paper so that you see each jockey sitting in his own horse!

4. Remember to start the timer to know how much time you needed to do it! Fair play, please. So, how long did it take you? 😉
