Teams train alongside their leaders: online, live, engaged

At Vivo we diagnose, train and track with our Team Productivity Training, so that companies can increase their ability to perform and grow. As a result of our team training, teams become more functional and productive and employees gain insights and confidence on how to become a member of a highly functioning team. Within our Team Productivity Training, we work on team competence, motivation and collaboration within the context of six soft skill areas identified as productivity indicators of high performance – Communication, Feedback, Structures, Accountability, Cohesion and Emotional Intelligence.

“It was transformative learning, not informative learning. We learned, really learned how to change our team behaviour. And we learned in a way we could repeat and measure.”

Training Methodology:

Only at Vivo Team will you find the three pillars of successful workforce training and development all in one place:


Workforce Analytics

We love data. It provides insight into the efficiency of your talent and workplace culture by clearly showing what’s working and what areas need improvement.  Our initial team assessment provides the data set that helps drive decisions about your team development needs.

Assessing again when training is complete shows the impact training has made on both individuals and your bottom line. It also ensures you see a measurable return on your training investment.


Spaced Learning

Effective, long-term learning is rarely achieved by a one-off event. Enter Spaced Learning, a new, research-based and highly effective approach to learning design and talent development.

A proven strategy to help people learn more quickly and remember better, Spaced Learning is a series of short, intense training sessions with a break to allow people a chance to apply. When training reconvenes, the learning objectives are repeated so there is no “assimilation” lag time: learners can see change by practicing and implementing their training right away.


Program is delivered Live, Online and Instructor-Led

No same-old-same-old, pre-recorded learning here! All Vivo Team training is engaging, live and dynamic. Sessions are recorded and sent out after they are completed.

The online environment is ideal for unifying and building teams and leaders, Participants can be in multiple locations wherever there is a high-speed internet connection. You set the schedule within the “flow of the workday.”

Team Productivity Training participants will receive instruction online through Adobe Connect.

Participants are required to be on their own computers headsets, for optimal online engagement webcams are recommended but not mandatory.


Program Structure

Our team modules are all conducted once per week for 4 months. You can complete all three modules in the Team Program over the course of 12 months or you can space them out and complete them over a longer period.

Each session consists of immediately applicable models, techniques, polls, scenarios, interactive role-play, live Q and A and discussion.

Each 4-month module comprises of training sessions on the two lowest of the key indicators. There are three possible modules in the Team Productivity Program.

Learning Objectives:

  • To provide training solutions to empower and equip employees with job specific soft-skill training for professional development. As a result of our Team Assessment, the Vital Statistics Report™, we develop a plan specific to the two key areas where a company requires soft-skill development.
  • The Module contains a Team Skills Assessment at the beginning and at the end of training to track performance results within each soft-skill area.
  • Training includes an interactive online team page for increased engagement and learning.
  • Team members have the benefit of connecting with their trainer to discuss the impact of their new learned behaviors, so that teams make changes in the way they interact, enabling them to produce more effective results.


Team Assessment

Participants will be assessed with the Team Assessment, the Vital Statistics Report™ both at the beginning and the end of the training. Participants will also be polled within each module to track ongoing learning and retention and engagement.
