Tailor-made development programs

A development program is a months-long series of trainings, workshops, experiences, quests, coaching, and mentoring. We love such programs because they really develop the abilities of the participants and change their attitudes through their long-term and synergic effects (unlike one-off trainings). The effects and impact are multiplied even more when leadership roles (managers, team leaders, product owners, agile and other coaches) go through the programs because they involve their teams and the people around them in the change and transformation.

Designing a program to truly have an impact while engaging participants is a very complicated task. Fortunately, there are many proven principles and practices to approach the solution successfully.

Our recipe for success:

  • deep knowledge of principles and patterns for creating learning paths and loops
  • custom modules covering entire topics as well as basic building blocks such as Quests (prepared challenges that participants complete) and gamification mechanisms
  • connection with a partner on your side who knows the target group and the needs of the company well

You supply the knowledge of the environment and we supply everything else. Together we create the best program to meet your needs.

All of our programs are naturally adaptive – each participant can experience a different learning journey depending on their individual subject matter knowledge and needs. This increases the motivation to actively participate.


Clients' stories

Tatra banka - leadership program R(e)BeLeader

Katarína Reisenbuchlerová, HR, Tatra banka:

“I had a dream of putting together certain concepts before, I just couldn’t and didn’t know how to do it myself. But thanks to Martin Chmelař, Tomáš Tureček, Jindro Lukes and other people from the Red Button network such as Honza Mašek or Luboš Malý, it works great. Thanks a lot for that, it’s been a five-year collaboration and I’ve learned a lot from each of them!”

Erste Group Bank - Agile coaches development (organizational level coaches)

Brigitte Raschka-Seidl, Programme Director , Erste Group Bank:

“The development program was very well received by all participants. The most important aspects were the very well-structured content, the highly interactive training methods, the quick response to the needs of the participants, and the willingness to share experiences openly. The training objectives were fully met, although we were forced to switch to a remote environment shortly before the first module started. Throughout our ongoing collaboration, RainFellows have always demonstrated tremendous expertise in all topics related to agility, great flexibility and adaptability to emerging needs, and an excellent collaborative approach.

Due to the positive experience and great success, we have decided to start the 2nd recruitment of the program. We can recommend RainFellows to anyone looking for a reliable, knowledgeable, and flexible partner!”

Komerční banka - community education KBSense

Filip Hájek, Head of L&D, HR Komerční banka:

“I have never seen so much concentrated intelligent and constructive energy in any other community. No matter what table I sat at in the evening, there was always a great flow – ideas for improvements were flying through the air, and people were networking, sharing experiences about the collaboration between Central and Distribution…”

What might the final program look like?

Is the goal to inspire the participants? To build skills? To change behaviors and attitudes? Or to shake and disrupt internal beliefs? Goals influence what the subsequent program will look like. Different goals require different techniques.
