What's 'In Good Company'?
'In Good Company' is our 10-part TV-drama series delivered through an e-learning platform, which is written by a BAFTA nominated screenwriter and follows the story of a fictitious company, Emerson Software Solutions. The characters might be fictional, but the science is real. We’ve enlisted eminent experts to comment on the action and underpin the drama with neuroscience and psychology. Each episode adds more to the developing story and includes a mix of office drama, professional commentary and assessments for managers to complete at the end of each episode.
The episodes follow the story of four characters in a software company. Each episode is no more than 20 mins in length and this is broken down into four parts:
A welcome introduction video including a summary of any learning points from the previous episode
The episode of 'In Good Company', made up of the story within Emerson Software Solutions, followed by analysis by an eminent Behavioural Psychologist, and then a review from the characters.
A short assessment to see how well you were watching the episode
Finally, a short review highlighting key areas of focus that can impact upon us being our best, our team being their best, or providing the best customer service.
You will be provided with online interactive resources to support your learning, in the form of three workbooks and a reflective journal.
'In Good Company' Online is a 12-month development programme, allowing you time between episodes to reflect upon the learning, and for you to apply any insights gained, in practice.
