Individual Contributor Core 101

4 classes
60 minutes


Being a high performing employee can mean many things: hitting your goals; providing timely feedback; prioritizing the right work.  Research indicates that top employees are highly effective communicators, and increasingly adept at collaborating successfully on hybrid and remote teams. They communicate with both clarity and compassion, and are trusted team players who make others around them better.

In this live, virtual program you will gain essential skills that are critical to your individual success, and the success of your team and organization. You will learn how to listen deeply and ask powerful questions of others; you will up-level your skills at giving meaningful feedback that lands, and you will learn how to collaborate effectively in the modern workplace.

This four-class program is led by world-class facilitators who will guide you - through experiential exercises, role play, and group coaching - to develop your people to their highest potential and deliver exceptional results for your organization.

Our Teaching Philosophy

At Hone, we aim to create transformational learning experiences backed by research.  During the class, we will push you to experience group coaching, role plays, partner exercises, and active participation.  Why?  Because the research shows that experiential learning is key to our growth and success. Together, we will create a learning space that empowers you to make sustainable progress towards your goals.
