ICONDA’s ICON9 tools enhance communication with colleagues and customers.
They constitute a pillar of ICONDA’s training courses and are fully described in Client Encounters of the Technical Kind.
To go further still, Difficult Conversations of the Professional Kind looks at the advanced communication topic of confronting colleagues and customers about uncomfortable issues.
my.icon9.net Learning Management System
The my.icon9.net Learning Management System complements coaching and training based on ICON9. It provides valuable support for independent work and considerably facilitates communication between participants and their facilitator, allowing materials to be organised and transferred easily.
Examples of material:
- The ICON9 Lite Introduction series consists of short, cartoon-style videos which give the basics of ICON9 and its most popular tools : MAP, PAGE, DISCOVER-Y and the TWO-MINUTE-MESSAGE
- The Client Encounters Using ICON9 Video series is a complete training course in six modules, including scripts, exercises and checks
- The Client Encounters Using ICON9 Audio series – somewhat experimental – is designed for learning reinforcement through short audio exercises
- Every new training program has a dedicated area, containing copies of presentations made, supplementary material, instructions for exercises, checkpoint guidelines, and so on.
