Benefits of a Lunch and Learn workshop

Does your team need to develop new skills in order to meet the demands of a changing business landscape? Do you struggle to find the time for full-day training workshops?

How about trying a new and exciting format that is quick, time-efficient and highly interactive. Not only it will be an opportunity to develop lines of communication between different departments; it will also develop new bonds and relationships across teams. Best of all, you can do this over breakfast or lunch as a great work social event.

New Reflections’ Latte and Learn and Lunch and Learn training workshops provide a fun and exciting environment for team members to get together and develop their skills over lunch, breakfast or a coffee. You can select from a variety of programs across personal and professional development: communication skills development, management, leadership, team building, emotional intelligence, organisational culture, internal customer service, and much more. Select from 35+ topics available.

Lunch and learn training workshops are time savers

Traditional training workshops can take a significant time to organise and implement. They can range from half a day to a few days. It can be difficult to organise the time available for such development opportunities as it can be unesay to get everyone there for a workshop, organising around individual’s availability and setting a time that meets everyone’s schedule.

The Latte or Lunch and Learn workshops are organised at a time where everyone is available and free to learn and develop their skills. A heavy program can be broken up into ‘chunks’ and spread out across multiple lunches, providing an easier allocation of time, and facilitating fewer disruptions in the rearrangement of one’s work. The Lunch and Learn format also provides a less formal platform that aids team interaction and development.

Lunch and learn training workshops are hands-on and practical

New Reflections understands the learning process, thus, the programs are organised around how we process, retain and enact on the information. The brain can only process a certain amount of information at a time. With too much information presented at one time, it becomes difficult to retain all of it, with a lot of it falling by the wayside and forgotten only seconds after it has been heard. With that, important knowledge and skills are forgotten, hindering the development of your talents.

The Lunch and Learn and The Latte and Learn workshops are designed to overcome this concern.

The programs are developed as ‘bite-sized’ workshops focusing on specific challenges, skills and topics, with an emphasis on providing hands-on techniques and models.

Latte and Learn and Lunch and Learn programs typically run for 90 minutes. Breaking up long programs into ‘bite-sized chunks’, avoid for participants to be overwhelmed with new knowledge and information; instead, it gives them the time to process, advance and work on their skills development between workshops.

Thanks to this organisation and model, you get greater results in the long run, producing superior outcomes for your team and organisation. Given time and patience, your talents are able to develop stronger lasting skills.

Lunch and learn training workshops are ideal for small groups and teams

New Reflections appreciates how the environment we learn in affects our learning exeprience. The Latte/Lunch and Learn programs are designed for a small groups, ranging from 6 to 16 participants, creating an intimate and close-knit experience. This encourages greater interaction and communication between participants. A key driving principle behind the Latte/Lunch and Learn programs is that the more participants that are willing to interact, the greater the results. Thus the program is designed around a smaller environment as this makes individuals feel more secure and safe. With these feelings, participants are more likely to be significantly more involved in the development experience and facilitate greater interaction with their fellow team members. This enhances team environment and culture as the training develops.

Lunch and learn training workshops are tailored to your needs

The Latte and Learn and the Lunch and Learn programs are designed to be adaptable and malleable. At New Reflections, we understand that we all have different times when we are most productive at working. While some of us are morning people, getting the best work done first thing in the day; others are more night owls and do better later in the day. The Lunch/ Latte and Learn programs can be modified to suit the strengths of the individuals and the team. We can even consider running Appetiser and Learn workshops after work hours if that best suits your organisation and talents.

Latte and Learn workshops are designed to be completed in the morning, when individuals have just got into their daily routine, catching them at their most eager and alert time. The Lunch and Learn programs are the ones designed for the middle of the day, where individuals are seeking interaction. With in a lunch environment, individuals feel more relaxed, happier and comfortable when interacting with fellow team members. The programs is designed to catch these feelings and use them to help team members on their learning skills development.
