The disturbing news is that millions of employee training dollars are being wasted because...

"Only 10% to 20% of participants in training programs will apply what they learn to achieve business results."

How Much Is Poor Employee
Training Costing Your Company?

Every day across the country and throughout the world companies are spending thousands of dollars on employee training. However, much of that employee training is not designed to be dynamic and does not give companies the results they need for highly effective employee performance.

Why is this happening?

Because of budget constraints and the high cost of hiring an expert employee training designer, managers, supervisors, or front-line employees - who are not experts in designing training - are creating employee training programs. They are not skilled in including the essential strategies for ongoing employee improvement.

In today's economy, you need to get the most "bang out of your employee training buck." and I've got some good news that makes it really easy!

Here's a summary of each lesson...

  • Lesson 1: The Eight General Guidelines to Designing Training. In Lesson 1, you will learn all the things you need to include in an effective employee training program.

  • Lesson 2: Motivation and Pre-Training Concerns. Nothing hinders learning like low motivation. You'll discover how to get employees fired up to come to training with a positive attitude. In addition, there are many pre-training concerns that you must address to insure the success of your training, which are explained in detail.
  • Lesson 3: Evaluation and Measurement of Training. You can't determine the success of your training without evaluation and measurement. Learn the four levels of evaluation and how you can apply them to determine the transfer of knowledge to the actual application on the job.

  • Lesson 4: Questions from Trainers. Trainers in the workplace asked us how to solve their biggest frustrations. This alphabet soup list of questions and answers covers a wide range of workplace training situations.

  • Lesson 5: Preparing to Design Training. Before you even begin to design your training, you must develop the foundation to insure an excellent training program. If you leave out these important steps, you will waste a lot of time and make costly mistakes.

  • Lesson 6: Adding Games and Activities - Part 1. Let's face it, not all participants are "happy campers." In this lesson, you'll learn how to get difficult participants involved, interested, and enthusiastic through interaction.

  • Lesson 7: Adding Games and Activities - Part 2. Variety is the secret to keeping participants focused and alert during your training programs. That is why we are devoting two lessons to games and activities. When participants have fun while learning a skill, they pay more attention and also have greater retention when they return to their work.

  • Lesson 8: The Finishing Touches. This is an important lesson because it covers the "ebb and flow" of how the content and activities blend together, the timing of the activities and the debrief, the best way to train adult learners, whether to add music and/or PowerPoints, and much more.

In addition, you'll also get...

  • Designing Training Checklist, so that when you begin designing your next employee training, you won't forget to include any of the essential steps.

  • Self-Study Schedule, to record the time you spent studying the lessons to qualify for your Certificate of Completion.

  • Qualification Quiz, to be eligible to receive your Certificate of Completion

  • Certificate of Completion, which is suitable for framing and displaying. What's more...this may even help you get a promotion as well as qualify you for your association's CEUs.
