Group Training and Facilitation

About Group Training and Facilitation

The NIH Training Center can bring training on-site to your location, exclusively for your specific team or IC. Benefits of this specialized training include the following:

  • Participants receive consistent messages and hear the same thing, at the same time, by the same instructor, with content customized for your IC/organization.
  • Team members participate in training together, which facilitates collaboration and teambuilding among staff.
  • Training is offered at a time and place most convenient to staff.
  • You determine the training duration-1/2 day sessions or multiple sessions over an extended period of time are options available to you.

All courses in the NIHTC course catalog can be made available exclusively for your team or IC. Simply email us at NIHTrainingCenter@nih.gov and provide the name of the course and your preferred timeframe and a NIHTC Program Manager will contact you to begin arranging for your Group Training.

Teambuilding Course Options

Building Effective Teams

Your ability to build effective teams requires on-going communication. Learn new techniques on how to enhance your communications and hold your people accountable.


Myers-Briggs Training

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) workshop equips NIH employees with a unique perspective to assist with personal tools for better self-management, communication, and relationship management.


StrengthsFinder 2.0 - Discover What You Do Best

You've heard of the Gallup Poll to monitor political races. Now Gallup brings you tools to use in the workplace.


Managing Multiple Priorities, Projects, and Bosses

Do you experience never ending to-do lists, pressure deadlines, and constant interruptions, change, or stress? Managing your work day is a skill that needs constant sharpening regardless of your years with the NIH.

Additonal Options

Individual Development Plan Workshops

Bring IDP best practices on-site to your team or office. This workshop creates an avenue for conversation around professional development and priorities, which can increase engagement, productivity, and performance. Your team will have the tools and knowledge they need to understand, leverage, and strengthen their technical and leadership competencies.

Group 360 Assessments

360 degree feedback is a method of systematically collecting opinions about an individual’s performance from a wide range of people to uncover leadership strengths and areas of improvement. This includes feedback from supervisors, direct reports, peers, and potentially external customers and stakeholders. Your entire team can benefit from a 360, complete with a group orientation, report, and debrief.

Costs

Costs will vary depending on the course. Prices are typically quoted on a group basis of up to 25 participants, not per-person. To maximize your investment, it’s always prudent to have as close to 25 participants as possible.   

Custom Training Solutions

If you have a training or facilitation need that requires significant customization and is a course that is not in our course catalog, we can provide options for you. This process typically takes 2-4 weeks. The first step is to complete our NIHTC Customized Training Request Form so we can learn more about your group and your requirements. We will review this information and provide you with various proposals to consider. We also offer team coaching, as well as individualized coaching for members of your team.
