Participants’ feedback from CLI’s online open courses conducted since May 2020 have proven a similar satisfaction rate with the course contents and facilitation like our in-person workshops (see satisfaction rates in the online learning section). While the content and individual reflection parts of the training are at the same level in CLI’s online trainings, the knowledge transfer even works better for most participants than in classroom trainings. Only group dynamic processes are less developed in the online formats, due to less socializing possibilities. However, all participants so far felt strongly connected to the training group and appreciated peer learning activities. So feel free to make best use of tried and tested high-quality stakeholder collaboration and collective leadership methodologies in new formats while the world keeps changing.

If you cannot participate because the technology does not work out for you, of course you get your money back or a voucher for the next online course. The best way to ensure a smooth online experience is to request a test session with us in advance. This also gives you the chance to talk in advance on your projects, challenges, skills, etc. that you would like to address with the CLI training.
