Organizational Fitness requires lifelong learning which means that staff and management training is an integral part of the operation. Not just any training will do however.
Are you aware that your staff will forget 90% of what they have learned in training within one year, if certain training techniques are not used?
Are you having difficulty determining what kinds of training your staff need?
Why is that?
Herky believes there are at least 3 reasons for this;
1) Not enough work has been done PRIOR to training in terms of;
- The organization having a clear picture of what their purpose and mission is
- The organization clarifying what their training objectives are
- Determining the motivation of the staff who are being trained
2) The training itself MUST be engaging and participants need to be ACTIVE and not passive learners. If these 6 components are not included in the session, you can be sure that participants will forget much of what they learned in a very short period of time.
3) What is the organization doing POST training to ensure implementation and long-term success? Have they allotted funding for ongoing coaching or consulting for example?
“Our staff rave about Herky – in a good way. They call him ‘awesome’. They found his training both practical and engaging. Herky made time for structured practice and ensured everyone’s participation. Herky ‘really listened’ and ‘understands our material and our work very well’. He knows his material and ‘brought the material to life, he could relate it to what we are doing’. Herky found ways to teach ‘for all learning types’.”
