E-Learning with Our Online Development Academy
Are you looking for a learning method that you can access online at any time? Are you unable to afford the associated costs of , for example, coaching programmes and other forms of training away from the office? Do you want to grow your vocational knowledge alongside your everyday workload?
At Call of the Wild our web enabled online development academy is an exciting new online business coaching and learning facility that’s designed to enhance our face to face development services and also to act as an invaluable learning resource which our clients can use throughout their managerial career.
It provides practical online management education that is geared towards business managers. It is most successful as a blended learning approach – when it’s linked to a company’s values, behaviours, competency frameworks, performance reviews and/or off-line training initiatives.
This has been stimulated by feedback from our clients. A number of recurring issues kept arising:
- Firstly time away from the office and its associated costs. Most training and development programmes will require time away from the office. Therefore the more this can be eliminated the better.
- You’re all busy people with heavy workloads but with the desire to further your vocational knowledge to enable improved performance and progression. E-learning is an excellent means of achieving this difficult balance.
- Retention of learning. Course material can be posted on the site together with pre and most importantly post-course material.
- CPD – For continued learning after the programme and throughout your career.

Change Management Initiatives
Our online coaching programmes can help those companies who need to standardise a company culture that’s fragmented by mergers, acquisitions or high staff turnover due to attrition or high growth. They may need to:
- Teach managers what good behaviour looks like in their company

Performance Management Support
Our online academy also helps companies with is performance management for HR professionals and those in other departments. Performance management support can help to:
- Put in place a programme to support leaders or high potential individuals
- Find a mechanism for rewarding good learning behaviours and management styles

- Build development action plans
- Link education/learning to a 360 degree feedback process

Graduates often need to be taught self-awareness and be educated in areas that they don’t learn at university such as leading through change, building a team, coaching and mentoring, communications, motivation, personal profiling etc. An online training and development resource can be supplemented by quarterly workshops to discuss learning experiences, and access to external one-to-one coaching/mentoring.
A common challenge for companies with graduate trainee programmes is how to make graduates feel special in order to retain them long enough to recoup the training investment. Our blended solutions dedicated to graduates can assist with retention rates.
