Social learning, using technologies such as Twitter and video blogs,
is revolutionizing the way organizational training is undertaken. At
the same time, the age-old communication technique of storytelling
is being reinvented as a way to roll out strategic programs to large
multicultural groups on a global scale. But how can you develop your
team’s expertise to ensure strategic initiatives get the best results?
This book provides insight into systematic coaching when cascading
a strategy throughout your organization, and explains the benefits
of reinforcing strengths, identifying weaknesses, and correcting failures
to build competitive advantage. It goes beyond merely explaining
training strategy; it provides details on how it relates to skills training
and how you can leverage this to implement company goals.
Drawing on real-life client examples and the inspirational stories
of highly successful individuals, this book highlights approaches that
have transformed organizations and re-invented training. It dispels
myths that exist around traditional training paradigms and brings to
light the effectiveness of new methods and approaches. It also addresses
the risk of “unlearning” post-training and issues that arise
with maintaining performance evaluation and measuring tangible
progress, and provides key questions that are relevant at project and
company level, plus practical checklists and summaries complementing
each chapter of the book.
