Like watching a movie for the second time...
One of the things we love most is meeting some great people, and I have been fortunate enough to have met some brilliant people from all parts of the globe. Even though we haven't been travelling, we have still met people via our remote learning platforms.
Last week, I delivered our remote PTT Train the Trainer; during the lockdown, this course has still been running and like when we run it face to face, you meet some great people.
I recognised a face and a name on last weeks course, and when I asked the individual, he confirmed that he had been on the course previously. He had undertaken the course some 18 months earlier but hadn't gone straight into a training role. Therefore, he wanted to brush up on his skills.
I was impressed that he wanted to complete the course again, although I expressed my concern he would be listening to my rubbish jokes for a second time!
He did very well and managed to improve on his overall assessment grading. When I asked him at the end, how did he feel about completing the course twice, what he said made perfect sense. He said he thought it was like watching a film you like; you take on more the second time. You pick different clues up in the storyline and see things you never saw the first time around.
This got me thinking about our new online video library, which is coming soon on our new Yondo platform. It will give members, some previous delegates on our courses to brush up on their skills and watch a particular technique again.
At the end of the course, he gave us a great review:
"Fantastic training course with a first-class instructor. I have learned so much from the course, and it has made me so much better at my own job. Very highly recommended!"
We are looking forward to seeing the video library in action. Once launched, the video platform will provide another opportunity to consolidate workplace transfer within training, coaching and management areas.
