It would not be easy to suggest something different unless we have an idea of the programs that you have already implemented. However, here are some not so frequently done program themes which may be of interest to you
- Assertive Communication
- Change Management
- Success principles
- Subordinate Development
- Leadership paradigms
You can choose a theme and then decided on the specific focus area eg. Under creativity you can a program on Six Thinking Hats or Lateral Thinking or Thinking out of the box etc.
May I also invite you to visit the following Inspirational and Motivational blogs listed below which may also trigger some more innovative training themes

Training calendar is made once the training needs are assessed. Now in your case you wanted to first make the calendar and then execute it. But then in the bargain possibly some important needs may get a short shrift. So what is your priority? Addressing organisation's critical concerns or bringing "new" training programmes in the calendar?
By the way, are you from manufacturing industry or from some other industry? You could have specified that then only what is important to you can be told.

I endorse Mr. Dinesh Divekar's for his exemplary views. I was not clear with your post as i couldn't understand the purpose of preparation - Training calender 2013. I have one query for you. For whom you want to prepare and why? Kindly share more info about your current role, organisation, etc.
Mr. Jacob had responded because he is operating a training academy, these programmes are quite commercial and may not meet organisation's internal requirement unless their arises similar need.
With profound regards

It is well said, first pl mention the type of industry you belongs too, then the Need for the training should be identified it should be
1. Organisation Centric
3. Individual Centric.
Based on the above needs first identify the needs from all the departments approved & reviewed by the immediate superior and head of the department and then your job ends as simple.
Collate all the training programmes together in EXCEL sheet and see the number of maximum nominations you can finalise the training programme and it can be kept at inhouse or if there are few nominations you can send them to the external agency .
The HR person have all the rights to add/ neglect the programmes based on their importance & how it will develop the individual & organisation.
Apart from the above mentioned need pl add some of the basics training from the HR side like, First Aid training, Fire fighting, Safety training, Communication skills,time management, Secrets of success, Motivation & Team buliding, Excel training, Zero Accident, Successfull supervisor, Interpersonal skills development programme, Out bound training, yoga, Stress Management , etc which will helps to motivate the employees.
The tyraining calendar is 99% completed now, Put all the finalised training in the planned month approximately with th nominations as identifiesd in the already excel sheeet , give hyperlink to the nominations, so that when you circulate the employees toch the training programme they can view the nominations too.
first page of the excel sheet will be captioned a " TRAINING CALENDAR - 2013" with your company logo and any of the motivation picture.
hope this info is clear.

I don't know which industry you are in. If you are in software/semiconductor space, you may want to look at our program.
We are working with few leading multinational companies on "group transformation program". This program is for groups who have started as low cost development centers for multinational companies, who over a period of time grown big, with significant percentage of R&D man-power presense in India. With this comes expectation of greater ownership, technical competence, knowledge management, end to end program management, innovation, ability to make things happen etc. Group transformation program is a structured way of achieving this.
If you are looking for something on similar lines, you can get in touch with me at
Thanks & regards

Thank you very much for your replies. All were observed two three things. Industry I belonged, and the training process I have to complete. I am working in Power Sector PSU, in which there is clear cut Training policy and we are taking care of the process. We have classified our training needs as Technical needs and Developmental Needs and the need identification is linked with the Performance Appraisal/KPAs. In our organisation the employees are classifed in two groups, Executives and Non Executives, Executives - Junior to Senior level and the Non - Executives includes Jr.Technician to Sub/Jr.Engineer including Office/Clerical/Secreterial staff.
We are having different projects covering throughout India, and each project/plant is having their own Employee Development Centre/Training Centre. The particular project/plant is to take care of the training needs and training calendar preparation. The training calendar includes Individual needs and Organisational needs. Now I want to introduce new programs in this year under organisational needs category, it includes soft skill and new developmental issues concerning to the employees as well as organisation.
I thank SHB, Vanathi, and Dinesh for their suggestion and I will keep this mind while finalising the programs.
