Occasionally I get calls from organizations that only have a need for a few employees to attend a training session. We usually first explore if there are other people within the organization that could also benefit from the training. Most recently we were approached for supervisory training for three shop floor supervisors. After a few conversations with other departments (accounting, customer service and logistics) it was apparent that all of the supervisors could benefit from a program. My alliance partner then designed an appropriate program to address the similar and diverse needs of this group.
We had another similar situation and after a careful assessment determined the best approach for this company was to send their three supervisors to our alliance partner’s public program. In both cases the clients were thrilled at the results.
