Webinar Recording Details


Do you feel like the order-taker in the training drive-thru lane? If so, join thousands of other training professionals who can relate to this feeling. In the sold out part 1 of this program (recorded in June 2014), Jim and Wendy explored tactics for creating more meaningful communication with training requesters to maximize the performance and results that the training is intended to support..

The popularity of the first session prompted the development of this all-new sequel. During this interactive discussion, you will learn from other training professionals who have successfully built partnerships with the business professionals they support. You will then vote on your biggest partnership challenges, and the most often-cited issue will be used as the basis of chat-based discussions to brainstorm tactical solutions and ideas.
Jim and Wendy will bring back their humorous yet realistic role-play that illustrates how these critical conversations between training and the business often unfold, and how to keep them on track. The session will close with practical steps you can take to increase your own level of partnership with the business, regardless of the current situation.
