No matter where you went to college or graduate school or what grades you earned, positive long-term career development demands that you continue to learn and grow in order to move ahead. This could take the form of earning a higher degree, attending professional conferences, participating in training sessions, or simply reading a professional development newsletter.
One recent free professional development newsletter from EDSI focused on the important topic of employee engagement and motivation in employee training sessions:
‘Just Say No’ to Lethargic Employees!
1. Continuously emphasize the most critical concepts.
2. Create visual keys for abstract concepts.
3. Utilize in-class activities to reinforce newly presented material.
4. Create links between concepts and information.
These simple professional development tips can help transform a typical training session from being a boring jumble of unrelated facts into being a dynamic learning experience for your employees. These tips use solid educational theories to get even the occasional snorers involved and engaged in learning and applying new ideas to their work. The multi-faceted learning strategies will also help concepts to stick.
But how can you keep that employee engagement momentum outside of employee training sessions and in day-to-day life in the office? Consult a professional development newsletter to get easy tips for creating an atmosphere of self-discipline for yourself and your employees that will keep you all motivated and on track?
Foster Self-Discipline in Yourself & Your Team
1. Provide a thorough training program.
2. Clarify expectations.
3. Fan the flame of positive behavior.
4. React positively to new ideas.
5. Keep a beat on your staff members.
By establishing this kind of supportive atmosphere of positive expectations, you will be well on your way to keeping employee engagement and motivation high, as well as increasing your own personal accountability.
