The Roundtable is proud to have earned I4PL’s 2022 Awards of Excellence, in the category of “Designing Curricula,” for our CatalystTM program. The awards recognize the performance and learning projects that embrace and exceed the standards of excellence of the Institute for Performance and Learning.
Designing Curricula refers to the design of frameworks or overall structures for sets of interrelated learning experiences and materials to build competence for many groups of learners, over several months or years. An effective curriculum is more than a collection of courses. An effective curriculum is also more than the sum of its parts.
The Roundtable was privileged to be a strategic partner with Pelmorex Corp. to design the leadership development program. Our Catalyst program accelerates the goals of aligning leaders, developing new mindsets, and building learning cohorts. The program combines coaching, mentoring, peer feedback, informal learning, assessments, and application activities.
We collaboratively designed the program with Pelmorex leveraging the ADDIE model of development (Analysis, Design, Development, Implement, Evaluate). The overall design of the Catalyst program is modular to allow for customization of the program content as the needs of the organization shift over time.
Pelmorex, with The Roundtable, has graduated over 129 participants in total. This has enabled a cascade of learning, behavioural changes, and a strategic approach to leadership development more rapidly than possible through 1-to-1 mentoring.
We use the Net Promoter Score methodology to evaluate programs and coaches. An NPS above50 is “excellent.” An NPS above 70 “class leading.” Our coaches must maintain an NPS average over 75% to work with us.
In the launch year, the Catalyst program had a 100% Net Promoter Score, and has maintained an average of 89% since 2017. The line manager members received outstanding scores from their own teams on their leadership abilities, actionable feedback ,and team encouragement, significantly raising engagement levels.
Anna Petosa, VP of People Ops, reported back to us, “I continuously have people asking me when the next Catalyst program is kicking off! People are enthusiastic and our leaders are taking what they’re learning with their groups back to their own teams so the impact is spreading beyond the formal program. There’s a groundswell around it. You can really see the impact.”
