Participants from CA Indosuez enjoyed our interactive and engaging business workshop on "People Management". From applying profiling tools to analyse personality/working styles, over optimising feedback processes to team motivation, the middle managers learned strategies to maximise their impact and applied these concepts in several role-plays. 

With technical training being usually the main focus in the financial industry, soft-skill training compliments the skillset of a well-rounded manager. Thanks to the participants for the lively discussions and positive feedback!

Timeo-Performance was honored to facilitate one day of the Heineken’s Asia Pacific Graduates Forum for 100+ young talents from over 15 countries. The members of the high-potential programme explored how to nurture Innovative leadership through inspirational keynotes and an engaging and interactive workshop. 
The graduates lively participated in our award-winning innovation workshop and pitched their innovative ideas to selected senior management team members. 

Innovative leaders know how and where they can add unique value. They learn, unlearn, relearn and master new skills with ease. They know how to engage others at a deeper, more humanistic and passionate level to influence their team to produce creative management ideas, processes, products and services.

Testimonial:
"What I enjoyed the most today is the creative session. Being at the manufacturing side of the business, we don’t always get the chance to practice on creative tasks. I think it’s very good to establish a creative culture and to get us do this on a routine basis so that we are used to innovating and doing things in new ways.” Rajah Kanagarajah, Heineken Malaysia - Supply Chain and Brewing

Timeo-Performance & CrossKnowledge 2018


CrossKnowledge and Timeo-Performance announce partnership offering award winning Digital Learning Solutions to the region.
 


Today CrossKnowledge, one of the world’s leading digital learning providers and Singapore based Recruitment, Training and HR/Business Consultancy Timeo-Performance, announce their strategic partnership. As the Strategic Partner for CrossKnowledge in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, Timeo-Performance will bring multi-award winning digital learning solutions with over 20,000 learning objects from worldwide top faculty thought leaders to the region.

With digital transformation as one of the biggest drivers in 2018, Timeo-Performance answers the challenge of agile, mobile and remote working environments with unique blended on-the-go learning solutions to support their clients in their digital transformation.

Alexandre Giry Deloison, International Sales Director at CrossKnowledge, says: “CrossKnowledge is very proud to start this strategic partnership with Timeo-Performance and become part of the incredible learning transformation occurring in Asia through digital learning technologies. We share the same passion for learning, innovation and customer service and are looking forward to proposing end to end learning solutions answering business challenges to local companies."

Fabien Mailhe, Managing Director and Head of Business Performance at Timeo-Performance, says: “We are excited to partner with CrossKnowledge and expand our services. We thrive to bring more value to our clients with this innovative digital learning platform. After thorough investigation of the best digital learning providers, we selected CrossKnowledge as the most adaptive to the Asian market. Knowledge excellence is highly valued in Asia and we will represent the company working with the strongest faculty of worldwide leading business schools.”

Isabelle Larche, Managing Director and Head of Recruitment, adds: “Digitalisation and employee experience are the most talked about trends in HR. One could think “automisation” and “employee focus” would be contradictory but the opposite is the case. Digital solutions – if done right - have a tremendous potential to reshape how we experience work. Cross Knowledge’s learning solutions are accessible anywhere, anytime, on any device and for any type of content and the 95% course completion rate illustrates well the high level of learner engagement.”

As companies digitalize, the number of information systems deployed within organisations, multiplies. CrossKnowledge can customize a complete digital learning solution that meets the clients’ goals and easily integrates into the existing content and technology platforms.

Timeo-Performance kicks off this partnership with an exclusive SMART Talk on Digital Learning best practises and latest trends on 20 June 2018: “The Recipe for Digital Learning Success” with Mr Alexandre Deloison from CrossKnowledge.

Our intercultural business consultant Laura, asks you to 

Pick up the phone! 

Communication across cultures is already challenging in itself. Different preferred styles such as indirect or direct communication, means that actual words expressed as well as non-verbal signals could be interpreted in various ways. Now imagine a business context in which colleagues are continents apart, only met once and still need to work together on a regular basis. Daunting? Yes, but fret not. In order to build trust and common understanding, it is vital that you get to know your colleague, their culture and local business context. What better way than to pick up the phone and tune in to their voice, their communicating style, their personality. Email seems to be the fastest and easiest way to get a message across. But is your ‘clear’ message interpreted in the same way that you meant it? So I say it again… pick up the phone! (unless they are sleeping of course…)

Click here for 12 tips to overcome geographical, time and cultural borders to improve remote team effectiveness.
