'As we shifted to a 4-day workweek, time management became more critical to ensure the effectiveness of our global team. That’s why we hired Design Pathways to build a custom survey and lead org-wide workshops to support us on our journey. The workshops were personalized, structured, and full of practical and simple productivity and prioritization tools. They helped us develop a shared language, made my team feel united, and held us accountable to practice what we learned together. It was validating and an impactful investment.'

Here’s How Our Custom Learning Program Works

Baseline your team’s challenges and needs
We begin with discovery calls with your leadership team and follow up with an anonymous survey that integrates questions relevant to your organization's specific context, with your input. We analyze and share the survey results with you to better understand your team’s strengths and needs.

Customize workshops that are guided, actionable, and fun
To bridge skill gaps identified in the survey, we design and deliver custom online and/or in-person workshops and provide behavior-driven exercises, tools, and group coaching.  

Make it easy to apply learnings right away
We create personalized and collaborative worksheets to help your team immediately apply and practice what you learned and align on how you will support each other. We also provide guidance for managers to reinforce content and coach direct reports on new skills.

Lead with heart 
We care about your team feeling seen, heard, and valued. We create a safe and confidential space to share challenges and lead engaging activities to boost creativity and productivity.

Be a thought partner to your leadership team
We share insights from your team survey, prep and debrief with you before and after every workshop to integrate your feedback, and go beyond our scope to highlight other team needs.

'When we work with Design Pathways, we always know that our team is in good hands. The most recent custom productivity workshops they delivered were packed with engaging activities and powerful tools that were practical and accessible to everyone. Our team learned how to diagnose and address time management challenges to work better together. The impact of the workshops extended far beyond the content. We became more open, communicative, and collaborative. It was amazing how much the team dynamics changed. We can’t thank Design Pathways enough!'

We also offer our custom learning program for conservation specialist groups!

'With support from the Arcus Foundation, Design Pathways pioneered a custom leadership program for members of the IUCN Section on Small Apes (SSA) based in habitat countries. Through surveys, interviews, and workshops, Design Pathways evaluated and addressed unmet needs in leadership development for SSA members. Their bespoke and thoughtful approach created a safe and inclusive space for members to openly share their challenges and gain valuable skills in decision making, managing their workloads, coping with stress, and more. Members described the experience as enlightening and humbling and said that it made them feel less alone and more resilient. This program stands as a beacon of progress for gibbon conservationists. I'm excited to see how it will continue to advance our work and strengthen our community.'
