No Lecture

Peregrine’s workshops and programs are engaging, participatory, and impactful. We strive to engage all participants into the conversation and, with the facilitated discussions, the team will experience the desired change. Peregrine provides both in-person and virtual workshops. Reduce the cost of in-person training by going virtual while also increasing engagement.

We Promote Application

Our team-based workshops promote application of lessons learned to the participant’s workplace situation. We use film clips, training videos, and movies to help demonstrate the desirable behaviors. Individual and small group exercises are designed to reinforce the learning outcomes and show the participants how to apply the material to their specific situation.

Virtual and Online Solutions

Along with the option to provide a virtual workshop, Peregrine also has a portfolio of online, self-guided courses that can help you maximize your team’s professional development. When online courses are completed as  a workshop prerequisite, time during the workshop tends to focus more on workplace application rather than content instruction.

What Sets Peregrine Apart

Peregrine is your guide. We are here to ensure every individual we encounter has the knowledge and skills needed to reach their full potential. We know that the path through leadership is not always easy, but we are here to make it possible.

Peregrine facilitators focus strongly on workplace application. Application is taught through engaging discussions after watching films, videos, and short clips that demonstrate and reinforce concepts. Also, the use of films prevents the need for role-playing – keeping the training positive and comfortable.

Each participant receives a Personal Leadership Development Plan and a workbook. The Personal Leadership Development Plan allows you to document key takeaways and identify specific action items. The workbook includes all the presentation content so that you can easily take notes and refer back to what you have learned.
