training programme review


Bringing delegates from leadership programme together after 6 months in order to continue embedding the learning.It is a very action oriented, practical group with diverse requests ,which i learnt from the survey I put out to solicit their input.Any ideas on what activities/approaches to use so that delegates end up having shared how others are using the tools, revisted some key topics and feel renergised and recommited to continue applying the learning?

  1. have a facilitated event……
    I recommend
    1. Have the event facilitated
    2. Run the event around questions;
    Who has used the tools?
    Why not?
    What worked? How? Why?
    What didn’t? How? Why?
    Who has a problem/issue/opportunity in the near future?
    What would we as a group recommend?
    What are the generic learning points from people’s experience?
    Who can buddy up/help/coach?
    How will you make that work?

    I’ve done this repeatedly in the past and it works really well.
    Obviously it is affected by the numbers of delegates; 6 t0 10 and it works well in this informal style

    I hope this helps
    Rus when the delegates want a cake-break

  2. Learning Groups

    An approach that I have used and that has worked well in the past is to facilitate events around real life problems / situations the group has. Bring the group together initially to share their experiences since the end of the programme and identify current issues they are dealing with. Split the group in to subgroups of people with similar issues and get them to work through how these could be resolved, using the knowledge and skills gained on the programme. This could be done in a halfday session or you could encourage the group to work together on the problems and present their solution / suggestions at a later date.

    An alternative to this is to give the group a real life business problem and ask the group to work on it over the next three months, presenting their suggestions / solutions to the business at a later date. Again I have done this with a client recently, the leadership group were divided in to two groups one looking at the company’s approach to recruitment and induction, the other group looking at embedding coaching in to the organisation.

    What I have found is that if you encourage a group to get together regularly following a programme then self managed learning continues to take place and each member of the group learns from the experiences of everyone else. You will probably find that you only need to facilitate the first couple of events and the group will then continue to meet regularly to share and learn.
