Due to the massive impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are scrambling to survive and reinvent themselves. The field of training is hard hit with limited budgets and the sudden shift to remote technologies. Furthemore, L&D teams are expected to train more people with lesser resources. 

Progressive companies are extending their L&D efforts relying more on the frontline leaders to take on the role of learning, coaching and training. The challenge, however, is that these frontline leaders are also stretched out and face rapid demands in their jobs; so being a trainer as an added task is an unwelcome idea. The old concept of train-the-leader as trainer no longer works.

Topics covered:
  • Why does the old train-the-leader to be trainer no longer works?
  • What is the difference between a trainer and a learning catalyst?
  • Why do learning catalysts in frontline leader roles become a natural 
part and mark of excellent leadership? 
  • How to use the “Fix-Solve-Improve Learning Model” as a learning guide for frontline leaders?
  • What is the difference between instructing as a trainer and being a catalyst that 
helps workers learn as they do the job?
  • How do you succeed in persuading frontline learners to transform into learning catalysts?
  • What are the steps and practices of a successful frontline leader learning catalyst?

Attend the webinar and get a copy of the “Fix-Solve-Improve Learning Model” chart and article.
