Who knew chocolate could enhance employee engagement?
Chocolate: Passion at Work is much more than a training film. It’s a fun, interactive experiential learning activity that becomes a powerful catalyst for individual engagement and organizational improvement. Organizations have also found Chocolate to be a motivating addition to any team-building or other corporate leadership event.
The experience not only includes a short documentary-style film, but an actual chocolate tasting (yes, it’s a thing) in which participants will savor some of the best chocolate bars in the world. Once all senses are fully engaged from the tasting, the setting is ideal for an animated and productive discussion about passion in the workplace. This discussion can be the most valuable part of the entire activity.
Not your father’s training film.
The film is an intelligent, new generation of video-based learning that allows key messages to emerge naturally without heavy-handed prompts and explicit instruction. Rather, participants are invited to identify what they think are the important points and to be prepared to share their thoughts in the discussion which follows. Experience has shown that participants are easily able to discover the intended messages, as well as ideas we haven’t even thought of. What’s more, they appreciate an approach which treats them as thinking adults and doesn’t make them feel like they are being “spoon-fed.”
Our goal was to make this a current, authentic, intelligent, memorable, high-quality training experience that corporate trainers, HR leaders and other executives would be proud to present to their associates. We are also convinced that having greater passion will benefit their organizations. One thing is certain: participants will always remember this event and what they learned from it every time they eat chocolate after experiencing this activity.
