After all our effort getting learners to attend training programs and coaching them, we hope that they would be motivated to ‘own up’ and think beyond the regular and obvious duties. In most cases, we see our learners doing “just what is expected of them.” The problem with this idea/ notion is that it usually leads to underperformance. When a slight problem occurs, goals are missed. Certain unexpected events always tend to pull down expected results.

If our workers and learners fail to think beyond their regular duties, there will be many instances when they will be unable to deal with uncertainties. The unpredictability of events is part of our fast-moving business realities. We need to help learners go beyond “Just What is Expected” of them. 

Topics to cover:
●     What does research tell us about the impacts of unattended exemptions and deviations of work?
●     What are the causes of the “Just What Is Expected” mentality?
●     How do you frame your work and learning environments to help learners be made aware the of the gaps between usual duties and the risks of failures?
●     How do you prepare learners for uncertainties?

Attend the webinar and get Free: 2 Situation Videos and Exercises to raise awareness on “Going Beyond What is Expected.”
