Little Stories About Work consists of informative and thought-provoking animated stories made from cartoon-like whiteboard animation. It presents whole stories or bits of longer stories about misbehavior patterns, undesired situations and any problematic recurring themes in the workplace. It can be used for group training and individual learning, and even private talks every day to deliver a new learning experience.
This vehicle is to make workers aware, prevent and constrain negative behavior in the early stages of bullying and interpersonal and organizational problems. Some people are prone to be difficult co-workers while others are vulnerable. They may not be fully aware of their situation as they cannot recognize concrete, often subtle and veiled, examples of unacceptable behavior. Also, people involved in such stressing and complex situations are often frozen, they remain passive and maintain the status quo. Let's make them re-think it!
Bear in mind that our project is a systematic approach inspired by real-life stories and professional knowledge. If you want to get people to really learn you can give an overview of the issues and then go on to detailed examples. Clear and direct visual illustrations make the stories a compelling supplement to spice up lessons and discussions. It often presents serious things in a lighter and sometimes humorous way or from a different perspective. All this can have a stronger and deeper impact on people’s engagement and memory, and finally on their attitudes and behavior. Last but not least, it will also help to bring more employee wellbeing into the workplace and achieve your broader business goals such as retention and refining employer brand.
So, have you had a hunch, heard rumors or spotted it? Or maybe you just think that prevention is better than cure? We offer two options to tackle it! Both plans are easy, convenient and cost-effective solutions to enhance interpersonal skills.
Plan A. You can enhance an awareness training session or workshop with our illustrations. Let's think outside the box and stimulate imagination and spice conversations up with a couple of animated stories. If this option is too awkward, disruptive or simply difficult to organize then consider individual learning.
Plan B. You can give all sides of the difficult and challenging situation an individual subscription to our website or app and suggest in a tactful way that they look at issues from some other perspective. You do not have to bother them with daunting training materials. Give them a chance to draw conclusions on their own and watch the progress.
Plan C. We can also illustrate themes selected by your company and tailored to its problems or even someone’s personal story. It will take some time to create the new little stories, but you will get reusable resources to deale with regular issues in your workplace.
