personal potential."

BONUS: FREE One-year subscription to 4MATion®


4MATion® is a web-based tool which guides you step-by-step through designing your courses using 4MAT. (Value: $299)

How It Works:

  1. Input your outcomes
    You will define four critical learning outcomes that will guide the training design process. The 4MAT Design Wizard will help you choose the most powerful training activities based on your outcomes.

  2. Follow the 10-step wizard
    The Design Wizard leads you step-by-step through creating a 4MAT brain-based training design. When you are complete, you will have a 4MAT “Wheel” that overviews the design and a detailed leader guide complete with attached files such as PowerPoints.

  3. Import training activities from the Activity Bank
    As you begin to choose training activities, you can access the 100+ activities included in the 4MAT Activity Bank. With a single click, 4MATion will import the activity details, facilitator script and materials needed directly into the training design and leader guide you are building.

  4. Get help and inspiration 24/7
    For each step in the design process, you can access help and education features including training design tips, examples of training activities and on-demand train-the-trainer videos.

  5. Build your own customized, printable leader guide, as you design
    When you complete the 10-step wizard, you will also develop a printable Leader Guide which includes an overview, learning outcomes and step-by-step facilitator notes. You can import images, choose fonts and customize, as you like.

  6. Assess your design
    After you complete your training design, you can use the 4MAT® Assessment Checker to assess each training design step. You can also invite others to share feedback.

  7. Attach related files – including PowerPoints, images and handouts
    You can upload other file documents for storage in the web-based library. This makes organizing training materials easy and accessible from anywhere.

  8. Access your 4MATion Library from any Internet connection
    Using your unique username and password, you can access your training materials from any computer with Internet access.

  9. Share your training
    The 4MATion Training Library stores and protects all of your training designs. You determine who can view your work. If you work with a team of designers, a group Training Library can be created for shared training design access.
