Making Training Stick

Why can’t learners do on the job what they did during training? Get the answers to that common lament as you learn to overcome the forces that interfere with training transfer.Then discover and discuss the common elements of training that does stick, so that learners use what they learned on the job.

You’ll leave this session with proven techniques you can use to increase the pay-off from training when you improve the transfer of the learning experience to the job. Techniques include:

  1. Sharing your best practices with others.
  2. Building in techniques before, during and after training to increase learning, retention and transfer.
  3. Leveraging and maximizing your efforts.
Join us for a lively interactive presentation.

Which means she has also designed, delivered and evaluated training programs, written on flipcharts, collated binders, and used a remote control for a PowerPoint presentation too many times to mention.

Carolyn is particularly focused on providing training solutions that fit the audiences’ needs and that deliver information that sticks and transfers to the job.

Carolyn’s internal experience includes starting and managing training functions in the Bay Area for financial services companies, a biomedical manufacturing firm, and two non-profit organizations. Externally, in addition to working independently, she’s delivered presentation-skills training for Decker Communications and is currently involved with career-transition workshops for Lee Hecht Harrison.
