Meeting Needs: Yours and The Business
The old models for doing training just don't apply to today's challenges. Bringing trainees together for off-site meetings and having them listen to somebody lecture or flip through PowerPoint slides and expecting them to create new business realities or improve performance is not meeting their needs for development and certainly does not meet the organization's need for responsive, highly skilled, well-trained employees. What is needed is something more practical and business relevant.
Workshop360 classroom sessions differ from other training in that it contains: 1) emphasis on the practice and application of the skills to be trained and does not include information for information sake, nice to know but irrelevant points, or include lengthy lectures that demonstrate what the facilitator knows, but do little in improving employee performance 2) tailored and organizationally relevant skill development based on the Pre-Workshop results and not an "out of the box" training solution designed to fit multiple clients or industries 3) is immediately able to be applied and used back on the job. Examples used in training are industry, company, function, and job-task specific. No need for trainees to try to understand how to apply examples used from other industries or business scenarios; the training includes THEIR real business scenarios and is immediately transferrable on the job
Put Into Practice
Preparatory work helps ensure efficient use of participant time prior to and during classroom sessions.
Questions to Ask Yourself
Do your direct reports have the necessary resources to do their job effectively?
It is not uncommon for employees to feel that they are being held responsible for delivering results for which they do not have complete control over producing. They may not have the authority to ensure that others provide inputs necessary to achieve the desired results, or they may not have access to the information needed to make informed decisions, or they may have competing goals that often prevent one from occurring without impacting the other (a common one is being asked to deliver things with high accuracy, but to do so quickly!).
Are your employees able to complete the tasks assigned to them with the tools, resources, organizational position, and support of management needed to achieve success, or are they being held accountable for meeting goals or standards for which they can only influence at best?
