Areas

Our training integrates four broad areas:

1. Understanding behavior change

We’ll help your team understand user cognition, emotion, and behavior.

We blend psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, and more.

2. Building digital products & campaign

Your team will build new skills in applying psychology to technology.

We’ll apply it to wireframing, content strategies, AI nudge algorithms, and more.

3. Optimizing products & impact

We’ll help your team optimize their products.

We’ll blend behavioral research with industry practices, like UX research, AB testing, predictions, and more.

4. Integrating the behavioral design process

We’ll coach them through the behavioral design process.

Afterward, they can use our framework for future projects, giving long-term impact to our training.

Pick the spot between theory and practice

It’s crucial to strike the right balance between theory and practice.

With too much theory, our training would feel dry and pointless.
But too much practice makes it feel like mindless dogma.

The right balance gives your team lifelong insight,
combined with practical skills.

Below are three formats, ranging from academic classes to hands-on workshops.
There are pros and cons with each format, so we’ll need to discuss it.

Interactive classroom

Core theory with practice (1-5 days)

This style blends traditional lessons with interactive exercises, design challenges, and experiential learning.

We tailor the hands-on parts to your specific challenges to make it more engaging.

A good style if you want to prioritize knowledge and basic skills.

Educational mini-sprints

Core theory with more practice (1-5 days)

This style blends brief lectures with one or more products that we build over the class.

It’s balanced between theory and hands-on design, making it a more energizing way to learn.

A great choice for teams that prioritize building over planning.

Behavioral design sprint

Light theory with practice (4-5 days)

This is a behavioral design sprint. We coach your team through our behavioral design process, with a focus on delivering a validated prototype.

A great choice if you want to deliver a psychology-inspired product, in a short timeframe.

Pick your educational topics

We use the most popular lessons from our 50-hours training program for most corporate teams.

We help behavioral science newbs and established nudge units

In the last decade, tech giants have scaled up behavioral science units.

Whether you’re just starting or have an established nudge unit, here’s how we can support you:

We have no experience applying psychology

We’ve helped many companies with limited experience to upskill their team and catch up to the competition.

We have some experience applying psychology

For clients with some experience, we usually help them fill gaps, extend their expertise, and coach new talent to help them build their careers in applied psychology.

We have an established nudge unit

For established teams, we often train their support staff and extend the knowledge/skills of staff who lack experience in applying psychology. They see us as the educators who keep their staff sharp.

Pick your hands-on deliverables

Our corporate training works best when we build products for your organization while completing the training.

It makes the lessons more relevant, helps us better focus on your needs, and boosts learning outcomes.

This is optional, but if you’d prefer to build products in the class, here are common deliverables:

Optimize your digital products

With this approach, we’ll optimize a range of products across your organization for greater impact.

Depending on the products, we’ll curate the lessons around the psychological models appropriate for those specific challenges.

A good approach for beginners, drawing on classic behavioral science and applied psychology.

By the end, you’ll have a suite of design specs ready for the next step.

Optimize your conversion funnel

With this approach, we’ll map your main conversion funnels and user journeys.

In the class, we’ll identify problems at each step, build psychology-inspired solutions, and develop new mocks that we’ll test through design battles.

A good approach for classes with enough time to reach more advanced subjects, particularly stage-based psychology.

You’ll have specifications ready for conversion rate optimization tests and the next step in your production pipeline.

Build psychometric segments and personas

For this approach, we’ll extend your segments and personas with psychometric data and behavioral insights.

This deliverable fits best with our emotional design and neuroscience content.

Your team will learn to take an extreme user-centered design approach.

Sprint-out a behavioral prototype

This is our most hands-on format, where we’ll guide 5-10 of your staff through a behavioral design sprint. By the end of the sprint, you will have a mature, and user-validated prototype.

This deliverable follows our behavioral design process, which you can also use in any future projects.

Pick your delivery format

We deliver training with LIVE online groups, self-paced learning, and in-person classes.

Our most effective online format blends self-paced learning with LIVE group classes.

We’re flexible.
Whatever works for your team, probably works for us.
