It is no longer acceptable to be an “order taker” in the learning profession (if it ever was!).  To be effective and credible, learning professionals must be skilled in performance consulting.

In this interactive workshop with plenty of examples, role-play and feedback opportunities, Dick Handshaw will help you build skills in:

·         Working with clients to identify business goals and barriers to performance
·         Proactive vs. reactive consulting
·         Re-framing inappropriate training requests in a way that yields better results
·         Completing a Gaps Map
·         Identifying both learning and non-learning causes that will lead to performance solutions

Register today for this 1-day professional development workshop!
