We had a fast and idea filled start to our certificate workshop yesterday. Everyone did a great job of not letting the technology get in the way of why we were there.
We invite you to extend the benefit of our work together yesterday by considering these questions. Feel free to post a response if you’d like to dialogue.
Future Trends In Training: Which trends are impacting you most now and which are likely to impact you in the near future? What are the implications of these trends to your department? How will you manage differently with this context in mind? How will you continue to stay up-to-date? How can you use the process we used with your staff?
Key Roles and Responsibilities: How do these roles support your function? Where are the gaps? What alliances can you develop (perhaps with SMEs) to fill the needs you have?
Department Mission Statements: Review (or develop) your mission statement. On reflection, is it simple, easy to explain? Does it drive your priorities? Is it aligned with the organization’s mission? When was the last time you reviewed your mission statement with your manager? Where is it published? …This is a great place/process to start getting support!
Department Systems Audit: Try it out. What did you learn? Where do you excel? Where do you need to improve? What makes sense, in light of your priorities and mission statement, to invest time in improving? What actions do you need to take to move to the next level?
Life Cycle of a Training Department: Where are you in the cycle and what are the implications to you as a Training Manager? If you don’t like where you are, what actions will to take?
Roles of the Performance Consultant: Now that you know which roles you tend to prefer, how will you balance out your use of your less-used, less-preferred roles? What roles can you or your team add or strengthen to become a more valued business partner in your organization?
We welcome your thoughts, reflections and ideas…
Our best to you!
