How to Get Most out of This Training
Although this training is designed to address everyday problems, making sure attendees carry out most of this training and benefit from this training in the long term requires preparation before the training and follow-up after training.
The pre-training preparation pursues clarifying expectations of the training. In first place, it helps customers to understand, which changes and they will observe in attendees performance after the training and how soon desired result will be felt. It can well be that training agenda may need to be greatly reworked to achieve desired changes. E.g. when attendees struggle to manage the learning curve of reporting team members, then training should devote more time to coaching techniques.
Pre-training preparation also helps trainers to tailor training agenda to particular needs of attendees. It also helps attendees to come better prepared as trainers may give out small homework to complete before training, which leaves more time for practical exercises.
It might well be that a person will never met his or her performance expectations in the current role or function. Still it is most likely that he or she will soar somewhere else. Understanding why person is what he or she is today and getting insight into his / her potential is the purpose of assessing training attendees.
The assessment is performed by training teams during the training based on objectives defined prior to the training. Particular assessment is tailored to each particular attendee group or company situation, and commonly it revolves around answering questions, if is a person:
- Is underperforming in his / her current role, and if so why;
- Is overqualified for his / her current role, and if so in which areas;
- Could be promoted / shifted to other roles within company, and if so what he or she might be able to deliver.
Such assessment is valuable source of information for maximizing utility of company’s human capital.
Post-training follow-up pursues ensuring that expectations of the training are met in the workplace.
