About the Founder - Jules MacMillan
Founder of Cascade, and Managing Director, Jules MacMillan has been working in learning & development since 2001, with a previous background in sales & marketing, and specialises in leadership & behavioural change. Highly motivated and with a strong commercial focus she is passionate about making learning fun, memorable and easy to apply. So much so she designed the LEARN Model, a methodology designed to introduce a level of accountability for learning and a way in which to measure its impact on the individual learner and the organisation.
Our Core values:
Fun – to make learning engaging & enjoyable, providing a safe environment to ask questions, express views and practice techniques
Enthusiasm – for all trainers to demonstrate energy and enthusiasm about the topic and to encourage delegate participation
Respect – to show an appreciation & understanding of learners’ individuality and tailor content to match all learning styles
Professionalism – to show honesty and integrity and for all trainers to have a high level of applied knowledge of the subject matter
Success – to enable learners to enhance and improve their existing skills to gain greater achievements by applying learning long term
When it comes to memory it's been said that we retain 10% of what we read, 50% of what we hear & see and 90% of what we say & do. This is why at Cascade we focus primarily on face to face L&D solutions that incorporate all four learning styles to ensure the maximum amount of information is retained and applied long term.
And, whatever your organisational objectives are, be they increases in sales, profit, innovation, reactiveness, customer service levels or employee engagement, it is crucial to make sure your L&D activities are in alignment with them to ensure organisational success & growth.
To ensure this happens we utilise our LEARN MODEL to establish how you can achieve organisational objectives & overcome key issues through your staff. We then support your staff with our LEARN model as we know how important it is to ensure you get a return on your L&D investment.
Reasons to invest in staff learning & development with Cascade:
· Retain your best staff, saving on recruitment & induction costs
· Increase performance levels & productivity
· Boost morale, assertiveness & internal communication
· Improve customer service levels
Cascade Approach – Measure the Impact of Learning
At Cascade we use our unique Cascade Approach to aid with long term retention & application of material.
This process really helps to bed in the learning, brings with it a high level of accountability and aids application back in the workplace – reinforcing ROI and measurability.
LEARN Model – Embed the Learning Long Term
To ensure that all training is embedded & used as much as possible we strongly recommend incorporating measures to track development and outcomes of any L&D activity.
This is why we recommend using our LEARN model to help retain & apply the learning long term:
Learn listen, observe, take notes, discuss & do
Explain within 7 days tell someone everything that you can recall from the programme
Apply have an action plan of how you will apply what you have learned
Reveal demonstrate to others how you have applied it & what the results were
Nurture teach the content of what you learned to others
