Helping you learn from your and our experience.
At The Red Thread Partnership we have years of accumulated experience. Over those years we’ve also built up an impressive array of materials that help support developing a wide range of skills and behaviours.
This means we are able to quickly and effectively build a wide range of masterclasses to suit your needs. All we need to know is how long you want the workshop to last and how much pre-work will participants do.
Some organisations prefer comprehensive self-paced workbooks before a workshop. This ensures that participants come to the workshops ready to discuss the application of the skills in their work environment.
Others prefer that pre-work just consists of a few pages of notes to reflect on and maybe one or two videos. Whatever you want – we can structure the workshop around your preferences.
Workshops typically vary from 90 minutes to half a day. Focused and experiential they will stretch participant’s skills and assumptions and encourage them to experiment and try out new ways of working.
When these workshops are run in-house we would typically need a minimum of 6 people to organise and run a workshop.
Workshops can be face to face or online. If appropriate masterclasses can consist of more than one workshop to follow through on the application of learning.
Final content and format will be agreed with you in advance.

Custom, Bespoke, or Standard
We have a substantial library of IP and so are able to run off the shelf programmes for you if required. Our preference though is always to bespoke the content to match the needs of your learners and organisation.
With senior leaders this is especially important and we would recommend we look at a more customised and dialogue led approach for them.
Driving Impact online or face to face
Time and attention are frequently in short supply for senior leaders. As a result they often have a preference for short online sessions at regular intervals to manage diary time while giving the repetition that drives application of learning in the workplace. It is important that the programme uses day to day challenges as a key part of the learning.
We have found providing pre-reading and a range of active and reflective exercises for leaders to complete prior to attending workshops most effective.
The materials for pre-learning may be: online Ted Talks, word documents, interactive pdfs or more sophisticated online materials hosted on your LMS.
