You don’t want training! You want skilled people achieving objectives and contributing to your organisation’s growth and wellbeing. Training is a means of achieving your objectives and obtaining your results. So that’s what we concentrate on – Results.
“Through planned learning, helping individuals to develop the key competencies which will enable them to effectively perform their job function.”
And results are achieved through competencies, which is the ability to perform tasks to the desired standard. To develop and maintain competencies the four input elements on which to concentrate are:
KNOWLEDGE – Familiarity, awareness or understanding gained through experience and/or study.
ATTITUDE – A settled opinion or way of thinking and behaviour which reflects that mental condition.
SKILL – The capacity or practised ability to achieve something successfully.
HABIT – A consistent inclination to act in a particular way, acquired through frequent repetition over a period of time.It is these four elements we constantly investigate and deliver to make sure your people are always “KASHed up”We have, and continue to do so, developed instruments to enable clients to measure the effectiveness of the training and employees’ competencies.
Method of Training
It is important that principles of adult learning are adhered to and desired performance is achieved through knowledge, attitude, skills and habit. As adults are problem centred, learn at different rates and wish to see and apply the relevance of training, it is important that multi-sense learning take place through audio, visual and kinetics (hearing, seeing and doing).
The method of training will achieve a balance of approximately 20% presentation and 80% participants’ involvement through:
- Group Participation
- Skills practise
- Work Sheets
It is this active and practical learning and training that ensures a greater chance of success.
Why this training approach?
This approach delivers improved performance through its relevant and up-to-date subject matter and the structure builds on-going skills and habits for increased results.
There is a series of modules which can be designed around your environment and needs. The skills learnt relate directly to your business.
The optional weekly online follow up will ensure that skills learnt are reinforced and that correct behaviour becomes every day habit.
For further skills reinforcement and development there is also the option of online coaching. This can be useful to bring personnel “up to speed” if they did not comprehend or have forgotten the information in the group face-to-face programs. It also eliminates embarrassment of an individual by having to admit ignorance and ask someone else in the organisation for help. In addition it saves management time and cost by having a virtual trainer at your disposal.
Why follow up?
Re-learning is the process of encouraging participants to recall what they have learnt. The only way learners will absorb knowledge or become skilled is through their own activity. Relearning involves self-help, which then leads to success!Without recall, learners will forget 25% in 6 hours. 33% in 24 hours and 90% in 6 weeks! (Ebinghaus “Retention Curve”).
However, if you want the theory, read the books.
