Six Best Practices for Faster First-Time Manager Upskilling 

When designing successful leadership training programs, contents weigh less than 30% in determining whether it will be a success. The rest is about the strategy of implementation.

We have seen too many leadership training programs fail despite the fact that they had stunning content. The reality: the content matters only when the overall implementation strategy is successful. And implementation strategies aren’t about the content.

People are increasingly in demand for ways to learn faster and to correlate their learning with their daily activities. The days of “knowledge-transfer is the answer” are gone and if you want to make sure that your contents get digested and turned into a real and measurable performance, you need to work harder on the way you deliver it and the way you involve your trainees.

Unfortunately, still too many programs are designed the old way and very often too little effort is devoted to working around the content by designing actionable strategies and comprehensive ways to keep trainees engaged.

In this webinar, we cover six key best practices that you really can’t ignore if you want your training program to score among those unforgettable experiences you would like your trainees to tell home about.

• How to implement actionable training experience

• How to leverage smart metrics

• How to turn top management into a great endorser

• How to generate pieces of evidence that speak loud about the value of your program

• And more…
