Your Organization’s Training Program
Is it: Pertinent? Appropriate? Cost-effective?
• Does program and course design fit your company’s job requirements?
• Do people spend too much time in training? Too little?
• After training, are employees able to do their jobs efficiently and effectively?
• Do managers ever suggest training as a solution when the performance of excellent employees deteriorates?
• Do you know how much it costs for ten entry-level employees to spend a morning in training? Ten mid-level managers to spend a day?
• How much could it cost your organization when an employee makes a mistake? Loses a customer?
One-on-one and small-group follow-up
If someone needs help after the training, is it Pragmatic? Goal-oriented? Short-term? Karen’s clients often come to her for one-on-one or small-group follow-up after she has led a conflict resolution or teambuilding class. Drawn to her pragmatic approach, HR directors hire Karen for short-term conflict resolution or results-oriented consulting on a specific conflict (such as on-going organizational change). They find that the rapport Karen has built in the class, as well as employees’ familiarity with her philosophy, viewpoint, and methods, adds to her effectiveness.
