Why to use learning videos?

Learning videos are the perfect measure to

  • prepare content for an upcoming training
  • to clarify content during a training
  • to refresh content after a training
  • and to give valuable impulse for on-the-job application of learned content.

For trainings our MDI learning videos are always provided on our learning transfer platform.


Pre-reading – Gaining commitment as a lateral leader

Cover Pre-read Lateral Leadership

Preparative content for lateral leadership trainings

The 5-page pre-reading prepares participants for upcoming lateral leadership trainings by introducing topics and tools like the Commitment Gameboard and the Yin/Yang Commitment Communication. In the training itself these contents are deepened and exercised in practice.




Why to use pre-readings?

Our trainings always focus on the on-the-job application of learned content. Therefore we work with pre-reads distributed 2-6 weeks before a training session in order to introduce complexe contents and models. In the training itself there is a short repetition of these contents and time for questions, of course, but then the practical exercises can start much earlier.

Pre-readings always are provided on our learning transfer platform.


Transfer card – Gaining commitment as a lateral leader

Cover transfer card lateral leadership

The 2-page transfer card displays the most important tools of successful lateral leaders at one glance. There are tools for the lateral leader as a strategist on the one hand and as a communicator on the other hand – both in order to gain maximum commitment for plans, ideas and projects.



What is a transfer card?

Transfer cards are a MDI standard measure to guarantee the knowledge transfer of learned and heard content. Participants receive them at the end of training sessions in a handy format (DIN A5). The cards display the most important content of a training session and therewith are the ideal tools to take learned content right to everyday work life.
