At Speak First, we have always passionately believed that L&D can unlock the full potential of your team and raise up your business. This can only be done through an in-depth knowledge of your business, industry, teams and strategies, as well as gaining buy-in from across the company. This is where our consulting approach comes in.
As consultants, we take the time to get to know our clients. We run a full Training Needs Analysis, spending the time to understand both the learning requirements and the culture of the company, before making our recommendations for which of our learning solutions will be the most effective and helpful. In our position as external experts with an objective perspective, we’re able to spot underlying challenges and identify solutions.
As an L&D professional working in-house at a company, you can also utilise a consulting approach to identify development areas for your teams and ways to improve the business.
It all starts by knowing your company and your business, building relationships and positioning yourself as an expert advisor. You need to keep your training aligned with the business strategies and priorities, while gaining buy-in from staff of all levels.
