Fall 2021: What’s new at Boostalab

At Boostalab, we’re always busy! We are in a continuous learning process and we spend a lot of time improving our solutions and developing high-impact educational content. So, we thought you might be interested in a little recap of our latest developments. Let’s have a look!

2 new ready-to-train kits: Feedback & recognition!


of Canadians are thinking of changing jobs or careers in the next year. Did you know?

Therefore, it’s more important than ever to respond effectively to the needs of your employees. Moreover, feedback and recognition have been proven to be two effective practices to retain and engage them!

Good news! We have developed two ready-to-train kits on these topics!

What’s a ready-to-train kit?

As a reminder, the ready-to-train kit is our ultimate autonomous learning solution. Each kit focuses on the topic or skill of your choice. It gives your teams (and your entire organization!) access to modern, inspiring, simple, and straightforward training content. Even better, it gives learners the chance to acquire a new skill quickly, but at their own pace.

And since each person learns differently, various types of content are offered in a kit: self-assessments, videos, guides to take action, suggested reading, etc.

  • Debunk the myths and beliefs surrounding constructive feedback to make it accessible to all
  • Know the characteristics of good feedback and know how to prepare for feedback meetings in order to achieve nothing but a positive result
  • Know how to ask for and receive feedback in order to actively pursue your own development.

The ready-to-train kit on High-impact recognition allows learners to:

  • Integrate recognition into their daily practices through the 4 types of recognition
  • Know how to offer and formulate high-impact recognition
  • Know the strengths and weaknesses of recognition
  • Know how to receive recognition with panache

As feedback and recognition are shared responsibilities, raising awareness and training both managers and employees of an organization is recommended. This is why our kits are designed for all individuals, regardless of their role!

Tailored solutions to smooth the transition to hybrid mode

The transition to hybrid mode is a major concern for many organizations. That’s why we’ve designed several solutions to address these needs.


We offer various workshops to help you lay the right foundations and give managers the tools they need to handle this challenging transition effectively and with kindness. Through lectures and/or codevelopment workshops, teams can acquire the required basics to transform resistance into engagement, support a person unsettled by the situation, manage uncertainty, and understand their roles in this transition to hybrid mode.

Interactive paths

Finally, to facilitate the transition, it is important to work and grow as a team. To this end, our interactive paths, which focus on the skills to reinforce, guide teams with kindness and dynamism towards the achievement of their goals. They are built on an approach that has proven successful time and time again: practical content, team challenges, learning through action, and debriefing workshops.

For the transition to hybrid mode, we recommend 12 key skills to facilitate the change. You can choose 12 or less, depending on your organization’s needs.
