As you work with ESI consultants to create your custom learning plan, consider what happens after the formal training events. As an industry average, 80% of knowledge gained in training is lost within three hours of exiting the classroom for participants who don’t get the proper support.
ESI makes support a priority to ensure you get the most out of your learning investment. Employing the appropriate mix of follow-up workshops, blended learning options or coaching to bolster newly-acquired knowledge will help ensure the immediate application—and long-term adoption—of new techniques.
Your ESI consultant will work with you to devise a learning reinforcement plan that’s right for your organization, promoting continuous improvement and an environment that fosters new practices.

- One-on-One Coaching or Mentoring - Reinforcing or demonstrating new techniques via virtual or in-person trainers

A Case Study: Honing Skills for the Real World
A leading global financial services firm needed a way to help PM executives practice applying their skills in real-world scenarios. ESI provided workshop learning events that simulated real-world experiences in a lab-like learning environment.
Since the approach made the learning event relevant, participants were able to test and apply their skills, allowing them to try, succeed or improve in a safe, supportive environment. The workshop setting also let the entire group draw practical conclusions for use on the job.
