What does the Industry want ?

Years of interaction with over one hundred corporate have helped us gain a crucial insight : companies look for competences which are a combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes while recruiting freshers. A prominent survey has revealed the following data about employer expectation rating and performance assessment of newly hired employees in terms of knowledge, skills and attitudes.

Clearly, there is a significant lag between industry expectations and the knowledge, skills and attitudes of employees fresh out of college.

The only way to make up for this is an effective ancillary program at the college level which addresses these critical factors.

A program which would not only ensure students are industry-ready but enhance the credibility and reputation of the college itself in corporate and academic circles.

A program that empowers students with greater knowledge, greater skills and greater attitudes and results in greater individual and institutional achievement.

Our experience shows when we are training to build skills, the methods and systems that we select can make or break the success of the training efforts. In our many years of experience in training we have realized that to get the most out of training effort it takes an understanding of how new behaviors are learnt and sustained.

Many traditional training programs focus on providing large amounts of information, with limited opportunities for the learner to respond and even fewer opportunities for immediate feedback specific to each response. At most, these training programs might train to a level of mastery where the end result is simply a demonstration of accuracy. However, research has shown that using feedback and frequent reinforcement to train results in faster acquisition, better accuracy and higher retention.
What we know about behavior can drastically impact the true success of our training programs. And now there is about a century of research on the laws of behavior which have guided the development of our training programs. The foundation of our knowledge of fluency comes from Applied Behavioral Science.

The foundation of ABS is the model of Antecedents, Behavior and Consequences.

model

antecedents The Science Behind Antecedents

In order for the training to be effective the behaviors must be specific and there must be frequent opportunities for the learner to respond. Any behavior occurs because something came before it to prompt it (antecedents).

With properly designed antecedent information, fluent responding will help ensure the student responds correctly to similar situations in life. We embed the science of behavior in our instructional systems. This ensures the development of judgment as to when to demonstrate the right behaviors and stay motivated to build the skill.

behaviors The Science Behind Behaviors

The first step is to identify the skill to be built and break it down into component behaviors that are measureable, observable, reliable and specific. But these behaviors still need to be performed by the student until the skill is developed, … so how can the science of behavior help us in this regard ? How will a student demonstrate learning ? What type of responding will be required ? These are all important questions that are central to the ABC Model of Applied Behavioral Science.

consequences The Science Behind Consequences

Applied Behavioral Science tells us that if these new behaviors are not positively reinforced then they will not continue. There is always a need for the frequent use of positive reinforcers directly following behavior when building any new skill.

Our training allows for frequent positive reinforcement and specific feedback. Use of consequences not only increases the opportunity for accurate responding but also makes the very progression of the training serve as a positive reinforcer.

Positive psychology is the branch of psychology that uses scientific understanding and effective intervention to aid in the achievement of a satisfactory life.

The practical application of positive psychology assists students in identifying strengths so as to increase and sustain well-being. Our counsellors and coaches use new methods and techniques to enhance the happiness index of the students.

Tools of positive psychology encourage students to strive to do their best. Research studies in positive psychology show that when students learn and apply the tools of positive pyschology their performance is enhanced upto 71%.  Other benefits include enhanced discretionary efforts, better relationships, more hope, faith and positive emotions.

PROGRAM METHODOLOGY

Our module delivery would use a combination of the following :

  • Pre-Assessment
  • Interactive Sessions
  • Case Studies
  • Games & Exercise
  • Videos and Webinars
  • Developmental Exercises
  • Group Discussion
  • Assignments
  • Online Questionnaire
  • Group Coaching
  • Post-Assessment

Through our program elements we focus on Knowledge (Information on what to do), Comprehension (Understanding knowledge at a deeper level), Skills (Developing the ability to do it) and Judgment (Demonstrating the skills in the right situation).
