What is Tero's training methodology?
Tero workshops are highly-interactive. Participants discover effective strategies through expert facilitation and practical activites. Tero is committed to a co-facilitation strategy for all workshops longer than a half-day in length. Research shows that small participant to facilitator ratios guarantee more one-on-one attention for participants and are more effective.

How do you measure the impact of training to ensure results?
All Tero workshops, that are at least one-half day in length, are evaluated for effectiveness and relevance by the individuals who participate in the workshop. Several weeks after the training, participants are invited to provide additional feedback on how the skills have transferred to the real world. In the case of longer workshops such as Tero's leadership development training programs, a pre-, post-, post-, post-series of assessments is carried out and the results are evaluated by statisticians for their statistical, educational and practical significance. Data is also collected through interviews, surveys and observation. Click here for detailed information about program measurement.
