T is for Training 227 : You are my work therapist – Make them smart, important, and significant

Cat HerdersThis week we were joined by Christie Ward, who is one of Paul’s ATD (Association for Talent Development) colleagues.  Also on the call were Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman.  Maurice interviewed Christie about her work, her association involvement, and her thoughts about delivering keynotes.  Christie did a wonderful job talking about the difference between delivering versus facilitating.  We ended the conversation talking about artificial intelligence (IA), augmented reality (AR), and the fourth industrial revolution.

In talking about how she collects information prior to delivering a workshop or speech for a client, some of the questions she uses are:

  • What is it in your workplace environment that is helping or hindering your performance?
  • What technology in your workplace helps or hinders your performance?

In her coaching work, she often asks:

  • What do you do when you lose track of time?  This is a great question to discover someone’s passions and to understand if those passions relate to a person’s work.

At the end, Maurice reminded us that each person wants to be seen as smart, important, and significant. As trainers-teachers-speakers, part of our work is to help our participants feel that.

The entire episode is available on TalkShoe.

Yes, we talked for 70 minutes and ended hearing that the older episodes (pre-2015) are no longer on the TalkShoe platform.  They are, however, still available through Apple iTunes.  We’ll post more information on how to get to those older episodes.
