With a growing number of communication platforms, technology and people in the workforce, there are more opportunities – yet less time – for communication.

We look forward to making our expertise in this content more accessible to the market as Grovo Microlearning lessons!”

The two companies will now partner to produce 20 executive communications training lessons that offer Lange’s content in Grovo’s Microlearning format, adding key skills and knowledge to the Leadership collection in the Grovo library and making the Lange teaching more widely available. Grovo’s proprietary Microlearning framework offers employees at businesses of all sizes high-quality lessons that teach valuable skills as single-concept, mixed-media lessons delivered within the flow of their work day. With over 2,500 lessons and up to 92% completion rates, this format successfully helps employees learn and adopt new skills and mindsets over time to promote improved business outcomes.
“Grovo is committed to providing organizations with the best content on critical topics that enable all employees to drive business forward, and Lange International’s standout training courses on executive presence certainly fit that bill,” said Steven Carpenter, CEO at Grovo. “By turning that content into Grovo Microlearning lessons, professionals across all businesses can now benefit from learning those valuable communication skills – right within their flow of work – so that the training is relevant and directly applicable to the task at hand.
