The recommended duration of the program is six months. At the first kick-off session, Act2Manage app is introduced to the participants to ensure that they make the best use of this mobile learning tool. Each month, one Act2Manage topic is covered by the participant, typically including 4-6 management dilemmas discussed in microlearning units. Specific action steps or commitments are made to turn new or refreshed knowledge into action. At the end of the month, an online, individual or small group coaching session is facilitated by a seasoned practitioner to follow up progress, discuss questions, solve problems, learn from peers and agree on further action steps.
Program content is fully customized to maximize relevance for the manager. It may come from the combination of these sources:
- company hot topics
- participant learning preferences
- dilemmas faced on the job
- focus points from Act2Manage Leadership Feedback function
