    ROI Impact Training Series

    Research shows that 60-90% of all training efforts yield no discernible business result.  And yet the education and training variable has been named as the most significant predictor of an organization's success as compared to price-to-earning ratios, price-to-book statistics, and measures of risk and volatility.

    Join us as Katy Caselli leads us in this 4 part series of discussions surrounding ROI.  Katy Caselli has been in professional training roles for large, global organizations for 18 years and has experience in solving complex organizational problems through excellent people systems and solutions. Certified in Change Management, 360 Feedback, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Instructional design and a Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+), Katy has used this skill and knowledge extensively in organizations to both lift the overall workforce skill levels and to apply learning solutions for specific problem areas, resulting in positive changes to the business and short time-frame return on investment. Katy Caselli has her master's degree in industrial/ organizational psychology and uses it to frame hiring and on-boarding systems that are effective and compliant. She is the author of Building Giants: A Proven System to Transform Your Workforce Through Effective Training. A constant learner, Katy's current hobbies include stained glass, kayaking and photography.

    This course introduces a strategic model that prevents training failures, and in fact, accelerates learning and skill building in organizations. An interactive- workshop style class.

    Part 1- Needs Analysis- The Driver of All Impact (two hours)                 

    Learner Objectives:

    • Use a proven model to develop and execute a goal-driven training plan and make results transparently impactful, measuring the return on investment.
    • Take a business approach to solve top organizational issues with targeted training that first seeks to improve the bottom line.
    • Analyze current behavior in comparison with those needed to reach business goals.  Determine skills and abilities needed to change behavior to bring about business goals.

    Part 2- Elements of an Impactful Training Session (Two hours)

    Training is often the event that organizational leaders pin their hopes on.  But it is not enough to be a well-informed Subject Matter Expert or Instructor, or to book a professional trainer who has great reviews.  Rather, organizations get better results when they require key elements in training classes, using adult learning principles, and accountability to evaluate learning. Training professionals are the key conduit to drive these requirements for high impact training

    Learner Objectives:

    •  Plan for high standards of impactful training and measure its effectiveness.
    • Partner with Subject Matter Experts/Instructors to design engaging training, with participant action that is observable and action-orientated. 
    • Discuss with instructors the reasons why “Death by PowerPoint” is not an option as a training approach.
    • Form early partnerships with leaders and instructors to ensure transfer of learning to the job.

    Part 3-  New Behaviors-Transferring New Skills From the Classroom to the Job (Two hours)

    Training fails at a high rate at the point when students leave the classroom. Research shows that 70% of all students will attempt to use new skills and then go back to old behaviors a short time later. *** Human Resources professionals are the key partners in the business to help organizational learners and leaders to use new skills and change behaviors in the job. 

    Learner Objectives:

    • Partner with Subject Matter Experts/Instructors to design impactful transfer strategies that reflect the new behaviors needed in the job.
    •  Check transfer strategies with alignment to business needs.
    •  Investigate and remove obstacles to using learned behavior when possible
    • Maintain strong partnerships and help reinforce, reward and make visible the use of new behaviors

    Part 4-  ROI/ Performance Evaluation and Learning Culture- Setting Expectations for Change       

    Part of the reason why training fails at a high rate, is that students are not held accountable to change their behavior. In fact, learning goals can be as impactful to a business as simple task related goals. This section of the course teaches workforce development skills that impact the business with enhanced engagement and individual growth. Human Resources Professionals learn how accountability for students (and Leaders!) can lead to a culture of learning, a strong leadership pipeline, healthy succession plans and increased employee engagement.

    Learner Objectives:

    •  Use performance management to drive skill building by linking accountability to learning outcomes.
    • Design other rewards systems so that they help drive workforce learning.
    • Recognize and modify scenarios where learning is inhibited and make small changes to introduce rewards instead.
    • Use learning activities as a way to engage employees, making a favorable impact on employee retention, internal promotions and productivity.

    In this session, you will learn the key concepts behind liberating structures and how to incorporate them into training, events, and meetings for radically improved results. You will have the opportunity to experience first-hand a few liberating structures and leave with some additional tools in your toolbox to promote self-discovery and learning, increase employee engagement, and spark creative problem solving. We think once you have been exposed to them you’ll love using them as much as we do!

    Do any of the following scenarios sound familiar to you?

    • Discussions that get off track because of one or two people in the room
    • Training participants that are skeptical, bored, or disengaged
    • Difficult conversations are avoided and the real issue never gets addressed
    • Trainings that lead to no action
    • The loudest voices are heard while the quiet ones get lost
    Instead of continuing to rely on the Big Five conventional structures (the presentation, the managed discussion, the status report, the open discussion, and the brainstorm) and hoping for better results, why not try a new approach? Liberating structures are adaptable microstructures that make it quick and easy for groups of people of any size to radically improve how they work together. Liberating structures allow you to tap into the full potential of any group and unleash creativity, insights, and co-creation.

    This events learning objectives:

    • Understand what Liberating Structures are and how they are different from traditional facilitation techniques
    • Obtain hands-on practice with using Liberating Structures in small group breakout exercises
    • Learn how to apply Liberating Structures to your workshop activities to achieve desired performance, obtain deeper insights, and build commitment to action

    Based on current research in the field of leadership, this presentation is an experiential learning exploration that leverages the difference between “learning about” and “having an experience of” to create a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of effective leadership.  With a drum provided for each participant to use during the session, this program uses rhythm and music as a metaphor to explore critical leadership competencies. 

    Participants learn to create a piece of music together, debriefing each step along the way, cultivating a number of fundamental leadership skills.  The collective music making experience becomes a live learning laboratory in which the participants have an impactful and substantive experience with leadership abilities that drive success in today’s world. 

    The Learning Objectives are:

    • Revisit the fundamental competencies necessary for success as a leader in today’s professional world.
    • Dynamically apply essential leadership skills through experiential learning exercises.
    • Cultivate critical leadership abilities in the areas of effective communication, collaboration, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness

    Inspired by spending more than a year and a half living and working in rural African villages, Bill Scheidt brings to his work a passion for human connection, a strong working knowledge of business dynamics, and a love for music.

    Under Bill’s directorship, Sewa Beats has delivered corporate training programs in 19 countries, 7 languages, and more than 300,000 participants around the world. Sewa Beats’ clients include many Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, BMW, and Cisco Systems.

    Practice Makes Proficient: Why getting back to basics is the future of e-learning

    We generally do a great job of introducing adult learners to our material. From books, to videos, to lectures, we help support strong first steps towards developing new skills. But what to do next? How do we ensure that they apply and benefit from this learning in their daily lives?

    In this session we will discuss why practice is so important to skills mastery and behavior change. We will review the key stumbling blocks and remedies to instituting practice in the workplace. We will also introduce a new experiential learning platform, Talented, that makes integrating practice into the lives of learners fun, convenient and effective.

    After the presentation you will get a chance to experience Talented in action on your own laptop or mobile device.

    Adam Schultz engineers and designs ecosystems that facilitate meaningful human interaction and equitable growth:

    Adam co-founded Talented, an experiential learning platform that enables busy learners to live growthful lives.
