Welcome! It’s nice to meet you.

Prologue by NIDA is changing the game when it comes to Professional development. With over 30+ years of experience in communication and professional development through NIDA Corporate Training, Prologue was created to engage and educate the next generation of leaders in a format that works for them.

Our first course: Act Natural

The soft skills you need to level up your corporate game.

Gain insights typically mastered through years of experience in the workplace.

Act Natural tackles the trickiest subjects to teach — communication, confidence, and navigating diverse interactions and situations.

A multi-platform experience

Combining an interactive app, videos, stories, card games, practical exercises, audio guides and more.

We know that the traditional approach doesn’t work for everyone.

Instead, with Act Natural you’ll watch short films, play card games, and test your new skills out in the real world. Every lesson is meticulously designed to ensure that the knowledge and skills you gain will stick with you for the long haul. Pretty great way to do PD right?


Soft skills to navigate the hard situations

As I’m sure you know, being effective in your role isn’t just about ticking things off your to-do list — it’s about the moments between the tasks. It’s knowing how to handle small talk with your manager’s manager, motivating your team on Mondays, and handling tricky calls with fussy clients.

Act Natural equips you with a new toolkit, so you can adapt and thrive anywhere, and with anyone.

What the FAQ?

They can! This course is designed as a personal experience, but having others to support you in your learning journey can definitely offer an elevated experience. Like having a gym buddy. We can provide team leaders with training notes and guidance to help them support their team and offer moments for sharing or team activity that enhances the work. And we are always here for you if you need to troubleshoot some training solutions. The course content, however, is designed to be done individually, so you don’t need a team to get the most out of it, and its absolutely fine if some team members progress through the course faster than others.

While Act Natural has a strong focus on work, the lessons extend way beyond your office walls. You’ll not only learn to be a better leader and colleague, but a better friend, partner, and person. It’s always useful to grow in the right direction.

There’s a little (actual, real life) surprise waiting for you when you reach the finish line and like all good PD courses, we will send you a digital certificate of completion. You can splash your certificate across social media or print it out to prove to your boss you did the course. But as they say, the real proof is in the pudding – once you have completed Act Natural you’ll have a whole new, unmistakable skillset you can use to your advantage, at home and at work. Plus, the book and app will always be at your fingertips, so you can come back to them at any time for a refresher.

You’ll need your phone to use the app and a pen or pencil to write in the book. Headphones if you prefer. For some lessons, you’ll need a quiet place to yourself, and for others a friend or work mate to interact with. Oh, and bring an open mind. That’s a pretty important one.

Many people struggle with everyday communication and confidence, even if they seem like they have it under control. A course like this can help every member of your team, from the most anxious juniors to the most influential seniors, because there’s always room to grow.

We pack and prepare each course individually just for you. Typically, it takes us 5-10 business days from the time we receive your order to the time we are ready to pop it in the post. Once packed and ready to send, it can take anywhere from 3 – 5 days for delivery to metropolitan areas, longer if you live outside of an Australian metropolitan location. If you live outside of Australia, our customer service team will discuss your delivery options with you.

To be, or not to be, that is the question. The answer is no. Though if you want to send in a self-tape of yourself doing Hamlet please do. We love watching casting tapes.

Look behind the scenes​

The National Institute of Dramatic Art is known for training some of the world’s best actors and performing arts experts; from your favourite on-screen characters to the backstage superstars.

But for over 30 years they’ve also equipped Australia’s most innovative leaders with a unique set of tools and techniques to be better at work and in life through NIDA Corporate training.

Prologue by NIDA gives everyone a chance to uncover these insights for themselves, whenever and wherever suits them. It’s self-directed learning that lets you learn the way you live.
