Webinar | Stop Over Training Your People

You’ve probably heard it before, “We have a training problem!” Whether it’s a frustrated manager or an overzealous executive, the answer is always more training. Hears the rub: Training isn’t a problem, it’s a solution.

As Abraham Maslow famously quipped, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, [it is tempting] to treat everything as if it were a nail.” Maslow’s quote has become famously cliché, but there is perhaps no better analogy to describe how training is used in many organizations today. Instead of taking the time to identify the root cause(s) of a performance issue, they hit it with training and hope they were swinging at a nail.

The root of this problem is knowledge, which is – ironically – one of the two problems training can solve. Most business leaders can’t definitively state the types of problems training can solve and most training departments lack the authority to push back when training is applied to the wrong type of problem. This is, of course, problematic because performance issues go unsolved and because training is expensive. Really expensive.
So, what can we do to stop training our people when training isn’t the right solution? That’s the question we’ll answer in this webinar.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • State the two problems that training can resolve;
  • Utilize the Performance Analysis Flow Diagram to assess performance issues; and
  • Determine if training is an appropriate solution for a performance issue.

Webinar | Microlearning: A Shift from Training to Risk Mitigation

Every year organizations around the world spend billions on employee training. In 2019, Allied Market Research estimated the “global corporate training market [at] $332.93 billion.” With so much investment, you’d assume corporations were realizing tremendous value from their training programs. Unfortunately, various studies report that learners forget 50% to 85% of what they learned within a week of training. Those numbers are startling, but for those of us who work in learning and development, it’s not surprising for two reasons.
  1. First, most organizations treat learning as an event, rather than a process. The likelihood of influencing substantial behavioural change in an organization with a half-day workshop or a 30-minute eLearning course is extremely low.
  2. Second, brain science has definitively shown that humans aren’t designed to remember information they interact with infrequently. This biological imperative needs to be considered when training is developed. The “forgetting curve” is real and needs to be managed if you want your employees to perform differently.
Microlearning – short bursts of training content – is one of the tools organizations can use to overcome the knowledge decay that occurs after initial training. With microlearning, organizations can shift away from event-based training, and begin to treat training as an ongoing risk mitigation tool. The flexibility and adaptability of microlearning makes it ideal for distributed workforces and operational environments.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Define microlearning;
  • Describe what makes microlearning effective; and
  • Explain how organizations can quickly and easily implement a microlearning strategy.

Webinar | Controls are Complicated

Hazard management is at the core of all safety programs. In the hazard management process, identifying controls is the last step, often after all the energy and enthusiasm has been expended on hazard identification and assessment. However, implemented controls are the only outcome of the hazard management process that generates “safety”. And, it turns out, they are complicated. Adhering to the hierarchy of controls is one way to improve selecting and sorting out the best controls—but even this is not well understood. Rarely, adding a control does not introduce a new potential hazard of some sort or another. The Swiss Cheese or Bow Tie models encourage multiplying controls – but does that always lead to a better outcome? So, controls are complicated. In this webinar we want to look at why that is and some strategies to help us be effective with controls even though they’re complicated.
