Presented by Andrew Sanderbeck, Terry McQuown, and Brenda Hough Oct 24, 2017
Organizations invest a lot of time and money each year training their employees, but are they truly getting the best return on their investment? As a supervisor, one of your key responsibilities is to develop your staff, including identifying the need and sending them to training programs.
In this interactive and informative webinar, Terry, Andrew and Brenda will introduce supervisors to “transfer of training” in order to help them understand various tools and strategies to support their staff in using more of their learning on the job. They’ll also explain the critical differences that supervisors make in the success and/or failure of employee training in any organization.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe the role supervisor’s play in helping staff transfer learning from training to the job.
- Identify practical tools and strategies that they can start using immediately to help their staff transfer learning from training to the job.
- Overcome possible barriers to using transfer of training
This program will help organizations get more out of the trainings they send their staff to, rather than simply sending their staff to more trainings.
