Important Information for all Managers and Supervisors...
The issue is, neither you nor your staff are accountants… yet your role dictates you make financial decisions!!
Time to do something about it… time your staff received the PROPER training in the Fundamentals of Finance… so they understand the consequences of their decisions.
STOP! Already you can hear your staff saying…
“PLEASE! Not ANOTHER Boring Finance Training!”
No it’s not!
If this was how your staff responded to the last training you organised…
… Relax, this “old school”, lecture, in-one-ear-and-out-the-other style of training is not only expensive but it wastes a lot of valuable time for very few tangible results…
Why doesn’t this approach work?Chinese philosopher Confucius figured it out a long time ago when he said…
“I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I understand”
FUNdamentals of Finance is Australia’s premier finance training based on a methodology currently enjoyed by over 300,000 people all over the world, because it is experiential “hands on” training and NOT a lecture.
Research in 2000 by the National Training Laboratory Institute in Arlington, Virginia (USA) concluded you retain 90% of what you learn when you apply it immediately to a real situation… compared to you retaining only 5% from a traditional lecture as the graph indicates.
When we DO something… when we make connections… we UNDERSTAND and that’s what FUNdamentals of Finance does… gives simulated, “hands on” real training.
Putting the fun into financial educationAnd yes, those words “Finance Training” and “Fun” appear in the same sentence, for a reason… participants actually ENJOY the training and because they do they engage with and absorb MORE information… meaning your Return on your Training Investment is much improved.
Based on the Swedish Bonanza training program FUNdamentals of Finance uses high quality materials and visually appealing colour and form that make it possible to quickly see a context in otherwise difficult to interpret financial concepts.
Because participants enjoy the non-threatening and relaxed team environment and feel less vulnerable about being shown up for their lack of knowledge, they engage fully with the program… and rather than just “hear” and “see”… they “DO” and they “UNDERSTAND”.
What we’ll do in classSpecifically, participants:
Work in teams in a competitive game-style learning environment that creates authentic business financial scenarios
Make decisions for simulated companies and compare results with other teams who solve similar issues
Are able to understand the terminology of financial reporting
Gain a detailed knowledge of the interrelationships of business and how even small “wrong” decisions can impact on a company’s profitability
At the end of the of the full day’s training participants walk away with a clear understanding of:
- Balance sheets and how to read them
- Income statements and why these are vital to the business’ bottom line
- Cash flow statements and how to interpret them and make the right decisions
… so they can walk into the office tomorrow and apply it to their daily work roles.
The really good news is that FUNdamentals of Finance can be tailored to suit your company and its specific needs.
“The correct financial knowledge has an extraordinary impact on daily decisions and makes a huge difference in the level of engagement by staff and hence the profitability of the company.”
