The key to PEP’s effectiveness and long-term success
PEP forever changes how people work, helping them consistently achieve their most important tasks. The ongoing support encourages participants to sustain their new good working habits for the long term.
PEP offers a unique blend of theoretical concept sessions and practical sessions. Group sessions introduce the general governing theories and skills, followed by one-on-one sessions at participants’ workstations. One of our expert coaches adapts the principles to suit each individual’s needs and working style.
Repetition is key to forming new habits. Therefore, PEP involves a process of interval training over the course of several weeks to encourage optimum learning and retention, ensuring that the ideas and behaviours learned will become permanent.
"Not having worked in a government department before starting with DFAT, the PEP program helped me to establish my workflow, set up my Outlook to support me and stopped me developing habits, by establishing routines."
