Staff Training: Action Step #1

See All Staff Development Articles and Files.

The very first thing to do in your plan for achieving excellence through excellent staff training is to rate yourself, honestly, as a trainer. That means you’re rating your staff training ability and effectiveness. Just like with the martial arts, real staff training transformation comes first from within. On a scale from 1 to 10, with Level 1 being your worst and Level 10 representing excellence, where do you stand?

First, if you’re not leading staff training meetings because you don’t have a staff yet, then rating your proficiency doesn’t yet apply to you. Action Step #1 is for people who already lead some kind of staff training –or who ought to be. If you’re not there, don’t be discouraged, but do proceed.

 With those two examples to use as a gauge, try rating yourself (and DO NOT be too hard on yourself), then, as an exercise, define the difference between where you are and where you want to be.
