Training and development
models of adult human development, stages and crises
12 topical areas
Whitefox provides 12 basic training courses. Each of them is a topical area that includes broad and diverse knowledge, skills and technologies from a given field. For each of the topics, we have selected methods and exercises whose effectiveness has been reliably verified in empirical research and business practice. We only choose those solutions whose results can be measured and precisely quantified.
The Statement Coding System and the facial expression coding system "translates our customers’ thoughts and emotions into mathematics” which changes their understanding of themselves, of others and of the world in which they pursue their business.
Mindfulness and accuracy
The promise we make to you is that we will, in all our development activities, maintain the maximum precision and mindfulness. In our opinion, the majority of adults change their beliefs, attitudes and behaviours in a situation where results of the adopted logic of action involve losses, failures and problems. However, connecting the style of action with its inherent consequences requires precise and quantified feedback. Otherwise, it is not clear which results from which.
„We count words, statements and grammatical structures; we count face movements” - the knowledge that we derive from this experience helps our customers achieve important development and business goals.
Our core activity is the implementation of complex development programmes. We start collaboration from the definition of competency profile that will be verified and developed during the programme. Next, we carry out the Development Centre sessions, so that each participant can obtain an individual report with the record of key forms of statements and preferred emotional reactions. After completion of the feedback session, we move to behaviour training. Individual reports are only provided to the people concerned. A summary report is anonymous and prevents identification of individual employees.
Below, we present one of the development patterns we use. The subject of improvement can be any skills of the 12 topical areas. In a situation where the study group operates in a unique context that prevents the use of standard Whitefox scales and exercises, the entire programme and all tools are adapted to the specific circumstances of operation of individual persons.
A sample Whitefox development programme pattern:
From paraphrase to Heisenberg’s matrix mechanics
During performed development activities, we teach the simplest things, such as asking open questions or paraphrasing statements of others. These skills, although technically not causing any difficulty to anyone (everyone can ask a question with what, how, when, where, and almost everyone can repeat what he/she has just heard), require special mindfulness and training in practice. In order to deal with the mind that “thinks too much” or “works too much”, we are forced to refer to models, theories and abstractions.
Building the motivation to listen and learn results from going beyond what we take for granted and see as obvious.
At the beginning, many rejected the Heisenberg’s matrix mechanics: it assumed something disturbing, something that exceeded the imagination, something that was destroying foundations. What does reality mean where there is no “place” of which we can become cognisant? What “is” the world which we can enter by means of numbers and equations? How can there “not be” something as obvious as 3D space that permeates almost every concept we use?
Some of the participants of our training courses constantly talk and interrupt others or stubbornly keep silent or control everything around until they deal with their basic assumptions. Whitefox specialises in working with people who know too much or work too much, although they are not necessarily worried about Heisenberg’s findings.
