By Karen Wilkins, Learning and Performance Coach…
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to follow my passion for learning and development and move into a newly created Learning and Development Leader role. The one challenge, I hadn’t had any time to prepare for this role! I was feeling so many different emotions – from excitement to worry and anxiety. I knew I was up for the challenge, and I needed the challenge! I had gotten to the place in my career where I needed a change, a new focus, a new purpose. This new role was the perfect opportunity for that! But I still lacked the formal training to remove the anxiety! This new role ended up being a game-changer for me, but it wasn’t without many challenges. I was fortunate enough to seek out some great mentors within the Company and find a few external resources. Most of my training was on the job, though. This worked out for me in the end, but I sure wish I had known enough to find some training on my own that would have accelerated my knowledge and skill development.
Now, as a Learning and Performance Coach at Double E Workplace Solutions, we have created the training I wish I would have had all those years ago when starting that new job. The Training Systems Design series from Double E Workplace Solutions is a 6-part training series that covers everything from ADDIE to designing learning systems for adult learners to writing performance-based learning objectives and solid test questions to facilitation techniques. These courses can be taken as a series or individually as needs and interests warrant.
