Frequently Asked Questions
Huh? What are Bite Sized Lessons?
The bite-sized lessons are short, few minutes traning-modules. Who wants to sit in a full-day class anyways?
What's the point of short lessons?
Short lessons give you a chance to learn a skill quickly. Our brains are powerful enough to capture details even if they aren’t complete. Don’t believe me? Can Yuor Barin Raed Tihs? Also Y0UR M1ND 15 R34D1NG 7H15 4U70M471C4LLY W17H0U7 3V3N 7H1NK1NG.
Any other benefits of short, quick lessons?
Yes, there’re many:
– Small lessons allow you to learn anywhere, anytime.
– People are busy and can’t spend much time learning. A short course is a good solution.
– Remote working has added more complexity to our work-life balance and has impacted our learning time. Small, flexible lessons give us a chance to get that time.
– Lastly, human span of attention is known to be ephemeral.
Are these training interactive?
Of course they are! I record videos and screens where applicable to explain a concept to you.
If I don't like a training, can I ask for refund?
Sadly no. All of these training are inexpensive and the refund process not only creates an overhead for me, it also costs me in transaction fee.
I can buy you a coffee if you’re in Melbourne and if you give me feedback? 🙂
Do You Offer Onsite, full-day training too?
I do onsite training too. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What people say about my training
I attended Rajesh’s virtual class on organising remote Big Room Planning. The class is full of practical advice, tips, gotchas to be careful of, techniques and stories from his own experience.
The course content and all supporting material that Rajesh shared after the class including the instructions, checklists, templates etc are tremendously useful. I highly recommend this course to anyone trying their hands on Remote Big Room Planning.
I invited Rajesh to deliver training for my team. We had exceptional time learning, playing and collaborating. His training was full of nuggets of wisdom and leaves you with a drive to learn and tricks & techniques to apply. I continued with a number of coaching sessions with Rajesh and these sessions have been immensely helpful in my professional life. Rajesh is a great listener, excellent mentor, and a genuine person.
..Raj guided us through by running a combination of one-on-one coaching sessions, group masterclasses and team workshops. I for one benefited a great deal from those. He is able to draw on his many years of experience working in different companies on a wide variety of projects to design solutions specific to the job in hand, rather than applying a cookie cutter approach. To top it all off, Raj is an absolute gentleman with a great sense of humour and a vault full of relevant, insightful stories that help bring even the driest of topics to life..
