How do you look at training...is it an expense or an investment? In order to maximize the value of your investment, training participants should be prepared to learn, understand the concepts of what’s being taught and have the opportunity to practice and apply key learnings on the job immediately after the training is completed.
MRA’s Coaching Guides are designed to provide you, the manager/coach, with information and tools to ensure your staff gets the full benefit of the training class.
This involves preparation and engaging with the training participant before, during, and after the class to maximize the learning transfer and the return on your investment.
- Before Training – familiarize yourself on the upcoming session and have a meeting with the participant three days prior to the class to discuss what they’ll learn.
- During Training – make sure participants are not distracted during the training with workplace obligations and responsibilities that could interrupt the training classes.
- After Training – have a post-training conversations to discuss key takeaways and how newly acquired skills and knowledge can be applied to the job. Have ongoing conversations about using the skills and measure progress and results.
MRA offers post-training coaching services to help participants apply to their job what they learned in the training program. Training provides the rationale, knowledge, and inspiration to change. Post-training coaching provides real-life application help and accountability over the weeks or months following the event.
