This week we were to create an ‘elevator speech’, pitching how a training program can support an organization’s business strategy. The speech should contain at least three factors or concepts about training someone would find interesting or new.
(The Elevator Speech Transcript)
Learner Centered – Performance Based; Learner Centered – Performance Based….I cannot stress enough the importance of knowing these terms. Why? These are the keys to transforming your trainees into learners (Stolovitch & Keeps, 2013; Laureate Education, 2011). Successful training changes people, transforming them into employees able to achieve desired results.
There are three things training does to support your organizations business strategy. One – It helps your employees develop the skill and knowledge needed to perform their jobs and achieve desired results (Stolovitch, 2014). Two – successful training saves time and increases “efficiency in both the trainee and the organization” (Laureate Education, 2011). Three – training increases employee engagement, which in turn, creates a positive work environment (Noe, 2013).
Give me 15 minutes of your time and I will show you how a training and development program can be used to solve your specific business needs.
