As Training professionals, we need to go beyond the “traditional” right answers and look for new solutions if we hope to get better results from our training efforts (or even maintain current results!).
Start by involving managers in the process of training. Coach them on how to prepare people to come to class. And help them develop learning implementation contracts.
If we as instructors focus on progress instead of perfection, it makes it easier for our learners to do the same thing.
Training measurement helps us get rid of “scrap learning”—learning that is delivered but never used.
It is always a good idea to “watch your economics,” but be careful not to forget that caring about people is one of the most essential characteristics of successful trainers.
The key is momentum. It’s easier to keep your balance on a bike that is moving. A wrong decision can be changed. No decision leaves you with the problem.
Helping your company get results can win support for your training.
If this is all I ever hear after a presentation, it will be enough: “I felt you were here to benefit me.”
