High Performance Training and Learning
Intensive Workshop (suitable for new supervisors as well as seasoned managers)

Training is a critical component of any successful business, but too often training is overlooked or under-budgeted. The challenge of training any group of people, especially a Chinese workforce, is perhaps the difference between success and failure for many businesses. It is up to managers and supervisors to first understand the basic universal principles behind successful, “learner-centered” training and then to adapt these principles to their organizations. If high employee turnover is an issue for you, investing in training can help you retain star employees and lead to better financial performance.

In this workshop, through facilitated discussions and dynamic individual and group exercises, you will learn:

  • The important distinctions between training and learning.

  • How human beings learn – The Two Key Principles of effective learning and training

  • The Four Key requirements for adult learning and training

  • The critical differences between the training for westerners and training for local Chinese

  • The effect of long-term and short-term memory on training and how to help people remember more effectively

  • The key ingredients for successful learning and how to adapt training for deficiencies in prior experience and confidence.

  • The differences between successful training classes and poor training classes

  • The unique challenges of training local Chinese managers and employees

  • Other issues that might effect performance and new intervention ideas to boost performance

By the end of the classes you will be able to create successful training programs for your organization. You will know how to:

  • Use the five-step model for structuring training programs

  • Develop training session planning sheets and training scripts

  • Create tests to measure training effectiveness

  • Determine if more training is the solution to poor performance

  • Have greater understanding as to why many local Chinese do not perform up to western standard

  • Select a professional training company that’s right for your organization
