This high energy, half-day workshop is a powerful combination of tools that people learn to use to establish a curious, innovative growth mindset and workplace tools to implement on-the-job.
People learn how to establish a positive outcome orientation, keep things in perspective and then implement new techniques in a collaborative work environment that is experiencing change.
Much more than just concepts, this is a course that provides people with practical tools to use in all aspects of their life. Like the other PPA courses, this course is different from a lot of courses in the same genre in that it is suitable for people of all ages, and all levels of seniority in organisations.
The 'no-fluff' approach that is focussed on practical application through activity-based learning throughout the session ensures that people are engaged, keeps it 'real' and has people walking away with tools and skills that are as powerful as they are simple to implement.
We use secure Video Conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat and breakout sessions. Please discuss your preferred platform, most commonly we use Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Webex or Zoom upon request.
These courses are facilitated in English, and are open to people from different industries across the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong - this is a short but powerful learning experience that gives you global collaboration opportunities. Our trainers and processes have been refined to give you a personalised learning experience where it is specifically targeted to your needs.

Building Creativity and Problem Solving Capacity with a Growth Mindset
In this half-day, workshop-style activity, people are actively engaged in learning a powerful combination of self-management techniques and workplace applications. The approach we take to situations depends on our mindset and perspective, and how we then execute and/or follow through.
This is a great foundation for developing teams that are more collaborative, take a curious (there must be a way) approach to challenges and work together to develop innovative solutions in a constructive and supportive way.
Highly recommended for teams and organisations that are needing to adapt and grow, and want to do so with a positive approach that finds solutions and moves forward together.
In collaboration with our clients, trainers, participants across the globe and our research & development partners (The OrgDev Institute and Leading Dimensions Consulting), PD Training has developed Productive People Advantage (PPA), designed for the needs of today to prepare your people and organisation to have a sustainable advantage tomorrow.
The combination of activities in this course provides a unique and powerful blend of self-management and workplace application.
This course works in perfect partnership with the other PPA modules.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
