What Would You Do?

This week:

  • Dear TLW–
    Our organization is starting to rebound after this shaky economy.  We are adding a new member to the learning and development team.  He comes from a different organization, however, has a good amount of classroom training experience.  We are delighted he’s on the team.  My question…our manager has asked “Bob” to co-facilitate the new employee orientation program, as well as the customer service training, with me.  I’ve never co-facilitated before.  Even though it seems as if it could be fun and interesting for both me and the participants, are there certain guidelines Bob and I should consider as we work together?

Next week:

  • Dear TLW–
    I have been in the training profession for over 10 years.  I feel my expertise is classroom training, in particular supervisor and management development.  As a natural outcome of the sessions I conduct, managers will often stop me during a break or after the session, and ask for my assistance in handling particular situations based on the content of the session.  For example, we may have just completed a “conflict resolution” course, and a manager will ask how they might apply what we discussed  to a situation in their world where they have need to mediate a conflict between two employees.  I have enjoyed this follow up and informal coaching.  Now I’m being asked to coach supervisors beyond the classroom experience.  I don’t see myself as an “executive coach.”  What do I do?  Where do I start?

Helplessness or Power? Influencing learner self-perception as trainers.

What Would You Do?

This week:

  • Dear TLW–
    Our managers need help with their coaching skills based on talking with employees, as well as feedback on our organizational culture survey.  We have designed a course that provides a basic model to follow for coaching…whether it’s coaching to develop others, reinforce behaviors, or redirect behaviors.  We have included a component that involves at least two skill practices.  We have not done anything like this before.  I know our managers…there will be some reluctance in doing the practices.  What would you suggest I do to ensure they have a positive and successful experience with this exercise?
