The RIISE Model (TM) and The BMcHAWK TALKS Difference
The RIISE Model (TM)
BMcHAWK TALKS sessions always follow the RIISE Model (TM), unique to BMcHAWK TALKS: R - research-based I - interactive I - individualized S - safe E - end-result focused
RESEARCH-BASED Session design includes a systematic investigation into and a study of materials and resources to establish a foundation of definitions, processes, and/or rationale necessary for session participants to fully understand, relate to, and appreciate the session topic ... we believe in research to support what we share.
INTERACTIVE Audience is engaged throughout via techniques that appeal to all preferences, visual, auditory, read/write, and kinesthetic ... session participants ... well ... participate! They are active, not passive; they write, read, discussion, stand, clap, and even shout!
INDIVIDUALIZED Each session participant personally reflects on him/herself affectively, behaviorally, and cognitively and creates a personal plan for improvement or advancement ... we do not talk at you; we talk with participants and have them explore their personal goals.
SAFE Session participants will always enjoy a safe, productive learning experience ... all ideas are welcomed, and no one is ever excluded.
END-RESULT FOCUSED Session participants constantly work throughout sessions toward identifying and shaping the successful actions to perform upon conclusion of the session that lead to personal, professional, and/or team excellence ... in short, now that session participants had this experience, they leave with a plan for what to do.
BMcHAWK TALKS differs from other professional speaking firms because event participants do not just sit and listen to a good talk. They are constantly engaged and moved to consider what the content means for them; they actually DO SOMETHING with the content right then and there. They talk. They write. They stand. They walk. They shout! Our events are based in adult learning theory and use the RIISE Model (TM), unique to BMcHAWK TALKS, so participants actually practice techniques and are positioned to take what they learned to immediately impact personal and team performance. That's the BMcHAWK TALKS difference!
