Ariel announces Presence Essentials –a new digital program for early career professionals
The Ariel Group (Ariel), a portfolio company of Renovus Capital Partners, announces the release of Presence Essentials, an immersive, self-paced online experience that enables participants to develop communication skills and presence in a scalable way.
Presence – the ability to engage the hearts and minds of others through dynamic communication – is a powerful differentiator that cements relationships, gets ideas heard and valued, and rallies resources to achieve results.
The Presence Essentials program contains six modules that enable participants to learn and practice the skills and behaviors of presence, and covers four main competencies, Presence, Reaching out, Expressiveness, and Self-knowing.
This digital offering is designed to help participants begin developing their own sense of presence and to apply and practice the skills and techniques they’ve learned in the workplace. It is appropriate for anyone who needs to show up with impact, influence audiences, and build personal value
“The world of work has changed significantly in recent years, focusing more on team and group work, and often includes virtual team members”, says Ariel CEO Scott Simmons. He continued “employees new to the work world need soft skills that help them collaborate better, show up with impact, be able to influence broad audiences and develop self-awareness about the way they work with others.”
Besides early career professionals, independent contributors and new managers could also benefit. HR departments should consider Presence Essentials as an important cornerstone in their on-boarding process, providing new hires with a foundation for growth and success within the organization.
Key features of Presence Essentials include:
• Modular system to pace learning
• Downloadable resources and module overviews
• Missions and activities for on-the-job practice
• Alt-text for the hearing impaired and video transcripts
• Robust user analytics and reporting for management
Drew Jacobs, Director of Learning at Ariel, added “in our increasingly technology driven world, employers cannot lose sight that effective communications, and the ability to work well with others, is critical to business success, whether that’s in-person or virtually. It’s more important than ever. Conversations need to be more than just tweet length.”
For more than 25 years, Ariel has developed, tested and refined powerful and authentic communication skills to drive better performance for leaders and their teams.
