Each program of Crossover runs in a journey format. So for example the "Crossover Project Leaders Certification" is a 4 month journey. The journey gives the participants an opportunity to apply their learning and share those with other participants. Collectively they learn so many applications in the group.
Crossover content uses case studies extensively and they are also contextualized to customer environment. This approach makes the learning really application oriented and the participants can see their life in those case studies.
In recent times there are huge numbers of Massive Open Online Courses available for free. Since Crossover programs are journey based it becomes very easy to incorporate those courses between the modules. It gives an opportunity to the participants to not only interact on a new medium but also with participants from other industries and geographies helping them broaden their perspectives. If the organization has an LMS already implemented and have their own courses they can also be incorporated in the journey.
We have experienced that when a Leader shares his experiences in the context of a topic it becomes very powerful for the participants. So for example after the session on Customer Orientation we invite the leader to speak on his experiences of how he has managed his customer relationships. It also helps the participants to build a rapport with the leader within the organization making it easy for leader and them to connect with each other informally post the leaders speak event.
As required Coaching can be provided for select participants. This helps in ensuring that nobody is left behind. Also we help the managers of the organization become mentors for the participants to enforce the application of learning.
This is a unique offering from Crossover Leadership Partners to help sustain the learning and ongoing development of participants. Below is a snapshot on C&C Club wherein the participants meet once a month and some take the role of speaker while other take the other roles like grammarian, time keeper etc. It is created on similar lines as the format of ToastMasters International.
