  • How will leadership training support strategic initiative of organization? + - ?
  • The first Post-classroom reinforcement tool is a four-color Job Aid Card. At the end of each classroom session, participants are given an attractive, laminated job aid card which highlights a key learning principle or model from the classroom. We have found that many participants like to collect these job aid cards and post them on the wall near their desk to refer back to. Q/I/C
  • The second reinforcement tool – and the first of our online tools – is called the Electronic Magazine. This is a well-written, visually stimulating four-page ezine, which provides case studies, role model interviews, book reviews and other interesting features. It is sent out to participants roughly one week after the classroom training, to reinforce their retention and application of key concepts from the module.
  • Our third reinforcement tool is called NetSpeed on the Job, a web-based tool in which the participant can construct a detailed “action planning” worksheet for a specific work challenge. It leads the participant though a series of questions to map out an entire action planning worksheet within minutes, following a template based directly on learning principles covered in their classroom experience. This is available for use immediately after the classroom experience. And NetSpeed on the Job is a tool participants can use repeatedly as they encounter new work challenges where they can apply the learning model. In this example, we see a page from the NetSpeed on the Job worksheet for the module Making Strategic Decisions .
  • Here is a sample page from the NetSpeed on the Job worksheet for the module Building the Total Team . No two modules are alike, and no two NetSpeed on the Job worksheets are alike either. As the participant fills out their action planning worksheet, they are presented with a series of questions to respond to, along with coaching tips to consider, as they develop their plan. When they have completed their worksheet, they can print it out, save it, and immediately create a new work sheet. It is quick, simple, and extremely user-friendly. And most importantly, it helps the participant to take the theories and models from the classroom and apply it back to a real world on-the-job challenge. Q/I/C
  • From: Making Strategic Decisions NetSpeed Coach is the Fourth reinforcement tool, and like NetSpeed on the Job, it is a web-based application. NetSpeed Coach is a multimedia, interactive series of questions that tests a participant’s recall and understanding of the classroom module. Additional information and explanations are available either immediately through the online virtual coach or by emailing a personal coach for further assistance. NetSpeed Coach includes a built-in Level III assessment tool. We recommend that participants take NetSpeed Coach roughly three to four weeks after the classroom session. This is a sample page from the NetSpeed Coach tool for the module Making Strategic Decisions. After this brief slide show, I would like to give you an actual live interactive demonstration of how NetSpeed Coach works.
