Now consider improving your entire training effort to make it the best possible. We’ve got the all-in-one program to help you do it. Here are the details:
In business, the difference between success and failure is often measured in how well workers are trained. That’s never been truer than now.
The reasons are all around us: Changing technology creates new skills to master every day. Competition forces us to hone our workforce to the sharpest possible edge. And where training once was nice to have, it’s now often the law. Harassment. Workplace safety. Even ethics in some cases. You name it, Uncle Sam or your state says you need to train on it.
Hiring professional trainers is an option, but often an expensive one. Isn’t there an easy-to-use program that can turn any manager into a solid trainer, at minimal cost, but with maximum results?
You bet your whiteboard there is! It’s BLR’s all-in-one guide to training, Building the Best Training Program: Your One-Stop Learning Resource.
Whether you’ve never trained, or have done it for years, Building the Best Training Program will enrich your abilities. Look at all it teaches you to do:
Make Training a Top Priority: A top-grade training program begins with a solid commitment from senior management. Here are the reasons, rationales and numbers to get it. One example: We compare the cost of the average safety training session … about $2,000, according to the National Council on Compensation Insurance … to that of a single injury accident … $10,971. That’s logic any boss can understand.
Develop the Training Plan. We lay out the methods to gauge your organization’s needs and choose the workers who need training … and also to decide when training will not be effective.
Choose the Best Techniques. Here are the pluses and minuses of presentation methods from classroom instruction to computer- or online-based training, Then, Building Your Best Training Program fills your toolbox with ideas for using quizzes, case studies, role-play and other proven teaching techniques. A handy chart points you toward the blend of approaches most likely to work in your case.
Know when and how to outsource. Sometimes calling in professionals or buying prepackaged materials is best. We’ll describe your options and provide checklists to help you make the right decision.
Learn the 12-Step Method of Successful Training. Great teachers aren’t born, they just learn the 12-step method. So will you … from how to introduce the topic (Step 1) to how to involve trainees through their personal experiences (Step 7) to methods of soliciting feedback (Step 12). You’ll also create the proper learning environment through a Training Day Checklist and learn how to use handouts and other aids.
Evaluate Your Success: Building the Best Training Program will show you how to use training expert Donald Kirkpatrick’s “Four Level Model of Evaluation” to measure how well you did. There’s also an ROI formula for more numbers-oriented top managers. Either way, they’re likely to be pleased, and, if you’ve never trained, perhaps a little surprised at how well it went.
You’ll be pleased, too … but not surprised. After all, you learned from the best. BLR’s Building the Best Training Program, that is!
