For any successful training program there are three steps;
STEP 1: Determining Training Needs
What training and skill development is needed and for whom? At the organizational level, consider;
At an individual level explore skill development needs. Use 360-degree online feedback tools, Skill Indicators, to provide invaluable feedback on a specific range of skills, whether it be listening, time management, teamwork, service, management, or even emotional competence. Skills that need to be improved can efficiently be identified.
EXAMPLES OF TRAINING NEEDS that can be met by DVD training systems include:
STEP 2: Creating a Skills Development Strategy
The DVD training systems work as self-paced or in groups. Self-paced. Choose a DVD as you need it. Going for a job interview? Doing appraisals? Managing new staff? Giving bad news? Missed a training course? Many DVDs have workbooks as pdfs on the DVD disks. They provide key learning points and additional activities. Consider working with a peer to share the learning, or a manager to relate the learning back to the business. Link this learning to a personal development plan. Trainer led group training. Trainer's guides provide a wide range of activities and handouts for learners. DVDs are modular with skills broken down into logical groups. Programs can be in short bursts over weeks, or all in a longer course format. We recommend setting activities that are completed back at work. This way the lessons are reinforced in a real life setting where skills can be practised and eventually become habits.
STEP 3: Evaluation of Training
Review and evaluate the outcomes of any training program to ensure training needs are met. Use a 360-degree feedback (Skill Indicators) to evaluate changes and improvements. With rapidly changing workplace demands, this final step will often take us straight back to STEP 1 as new procedures are brought in and higher standards of performance and quality are demanded by our customers. In top organizations there is an ongoing relationship between feedback and training at every level.
