XPO believed that their graduate programme had become outdated, boring even, and were keen to give it a real injection of life. They felt that graduates could benefit greatly from a more hands on experience, with plenty of opportunity to put new learning into practice, building confidence to transfer new skills to their everyday roles.
RoleplayUK worked closely with XPO’s L & D team to develop an intensive learning experience, using drama based techniques to explore and understand individual communication styles. Forum theatre scenarios were used to demonstrate bad practice and provide a productive environment for participants to identify workable strategies to correct behaviours and work towards successful outcomes.
Working in smaller breakout groups participants then had the opportunity to practise their own conversations with a Skills Coach and receive individual constructive feedback on how to hone their own personal skills.
