Training Design

Designing a training is like creating a roadmap with the goal that all your participants arrive at the same destination at the end of the training. Despite their different points of departure.

Need support designing a training which ensures that each participant arrives where you would like them to be? And which ensures that they will be able to continue the learning journey after the training, geared up with more knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm?

About UnlockYourPotential

Unlockyourpotential has been founded by Lieke van Gompel, who has trained thousands of people worldwide: from Afghanistan, DPRK, Iraq, and Yemen, to South Sudan, Botswana, CAR, and many more. 

One thing became more clear with each new training experience: Lieke noticed how much potential people have, but that most of us experience many barriers at work that prevent us from connecting to our inner genius and massive potential. Just to mention a few: the fear of failure, micro-management, elevated levels of stress, limited feedback. And the list goes on. 

Therefore, she also started consulting companies on how they can lower the barriers to learning and development. And thus (finally) unlock the potential of their people!

Lieke is a dedicated and hardworking quality trainer who knows that a quality training is not only about the knowledge, but also about the way this knowledge is being transferred. I much appreciated her flexibility in doing everything that is needed to make the training a success.

Her ability to connect with her students and her talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior.

Lieke’s understanding and knowledge about learning and development not just in a training room but also in an organizational context is unique. She knows how to make organizations develop through the staff growing as the most important asset. 



I was impressed by her capacity to translate a complex context and needs into practical solutions and to continuously adapt whenever there were (un)foreseen changes. She is driven, solution-oriented, creative, and pragmatic.



Lieke is a quick-thinker and immediately grasped the intention and stakes of the workshop we asked her to facilitate. She proposed a methodology and showed the flexibility to adapt it to the evolution of the workshop. She brought a very good dynamic, catching and maintaining the interest of participants and showing great mediation skills. Her analytic and synthesis capacities helped greatly in capturing the interventions of the participants and put them as constructive inputs to the workshop.



I was right away impressed with her teaching skills and methods. She managed to pass on complicated subjects in a clear, understandable and pedagogical manner. She is professional, a fantastic communicator, has a mountain of knowledge and constantly pulls out examples, while simultaneously involving the participants
