Using actors and specific scenarios can be a very effective form of training because it places trainees directly into live situations where they must use their new skills. This format can be adapted to a wide range of training programs whether it is live training or training that will be filmed for future use. Scenario-based training works especially well for racial and gender sensitivity training, compliance training, and any kind of training where employees are interacting with the general public.
In addition to general workplace climate around race, gender, ability, LGBTQ issues, training can be framed around specific themes including microaggressions, unconscious bias, and hiring/promotion practices. Winfield Artists also specializes in providing training for employees who interact with the mentally ill. Recently, Winfield Artists has been working with scenario-based training programs for teachers and administrators in charter schools.
