Leadership Toolkit Series

The Human Equation provides a range of practical learning solutions tailored to an organisation’s needs and environment. We focus on the organisation, ensuring that learning outcomes support the organisation’s development initiatives and strategies.

Our approach is to combine proven, successful training techniques and tailor them to the individual organisation’s particular needs. This results in material relevant to your workplace and participants, helping to ensure the skills and knowledge are applied beyond the learning environment and in the workplace, maximising the return on your training investment.

All learning and development activities are facilitated and delivered in accordance with the principles of adult learning, accommodating a variety of learning styles. We employ a range of activities and techniques, encouraging participants to be involved by drawing on and discussing their own work-related experiences. Sessions are designed to be interactive and include hands-on activities and exercises.
