topicalfrog…small steps in time and little effort leading to giant leaps in learning
If you are a manager, coach, mentor, buddy, trainer or even looking to brush up on a few personal development needs then you are just a couple of clicks away from a unique range of materials.
topicalfrog resources are professionally written, designed and provided in 6 development formats covering 22 familiar topics.
Just provide a name and email before your first download and then return to topicalfrog as many times as you wish. No passwords, no memberships and no hassle.
There are 6 glorious formats for each of the 22 development topics:
topicalfrog handout – provides you with a two page overview on a specific learning topic that can be used as a handout or personal learning guide
topicalfrog workshop – provides you with a structured and simple 60 to 90 minute group learning session on a given topic. The session will require little prep or training / presentation skills as they are designed to be facilitated or worked through by the group themselves. They encourage sharing of ideas and action learning and teamwork too.
topicalfrog questionnaire – provides you with a great tool for pre and post learning assessments, training needs analysis or as a template and guide for a discussion at interviews or appraisal. A very versatile set of tools that are hard to find in the world of learning. And remember, like all the other materials there is one for every topic covered.
topicalfrog coaching and mentoring guide – designed as self learning tools or can be used as powerful coaching and mentoring guides if you are trying to develop the skills and knowledge of others. Coaching & Mentoring is fast becoming the modern way to improve the performance of others and these guides are an invaluable reference point before holding your coaching and mentoring session.
topicalfrog CPD Record and PDP Certificate – these are the simplest yet most essential parts of topicalfrog. We have designed for you and your team members a record of your Continuous Professional Development (CPD). They can be printed, signed and displayed as a record of achievement. Award and issue the PDP Certificates on completion of one aspect of the topic or after completing all the materials / interventions regarding the topic. The choice is yours, the most important thing is to keep a record and so topicalfrog have made it very convenient and easy for you to do just that.
topicalfrog investment – if you are a company or investor looking to utilise topicalfrog and www.topicafrog.com as a commercial enterprise then we would love to hear from you.

Here are 10 Rainforest facts.
His gritty determination and humanistic style of managing others makes topicalfrog a great place to work.
He’s pretty laid back, single, 3 inches tall with bright red eyes and has a wicked sense of humour!
Many scientists believe that our Al, the red-eyed tropical tree frog developed its vivid scarlet peepers to shock his predators into at least briefly questioning their meal choice.
Al is an iconic rain-forest amphibian who sleeps by day stuck to leaf-bottoms with their eyes closed and body markings covered. When disturbed, they flash their bulging red eyes and reveal their huge, webbed orange feet and bright blue-and-yellow flanks. This technique, called startle coloration, may give a bird or snake pause, offering a precious instant for Al to spring to safety. However, since emigrating to the UK, Al has calmed down a bit but can still be startled when he meets strangers – this can be a bit off putting for visitors when they come to the office.
Al, despite his conspicuous coloration, is not venomous. His family can be found in tropical lowlands from southern Mexico, throughout Central America, and in northern South America. Being a nocturnal carnivore, he may hide in the office shrubbery pretending it is a rain forest canopy and ambush flies, moths and night-time security guards with his long, sticky tongue.
Don’t worry! Al is not endangered. But his habitat is shrinking at an alarming rate (back home that is, not his desk), and his highly recognisable image is often used to promote the cause of saving the world’s rain forests.
Al is a valued member of the topicalfrog team and a real “grafter” even if it is when everyone in the office has gone home. So by night he works away making sure that the website is running, materials are updated and emails replied to.
In the day, well apart from a quick nap this is what Al gets up to…
