Malta – Turkey – Vienna! Switch off the mobile and learn! Get out of the Office, in the seminar room. Is it really in the seminar or at the desk in the Office? In the new environment of thoughts a seminar umzuswitchen, presents a problem for many participants. The daily routine of the directions to the company does not feel: “today is a special day. My seminar for project management begins”. On the contrary, one leaves early from home, there is still working on the desktop, that needs to be done even before the seminar begins.
The lead time but not sufficient. It rushes into the seminar room, comes almost on time, only the coach has already introduced. “Never mind, I can even look on his website”. The phone is set to silent. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Simone Biles and gain more knowledge.. Just 10 minutes later, it vibrates in your pocket.
Frustration takes a look at the display: “must the Miller from the construction call me now, but know that I’m in the seminar”! It rushes almost silently on the doorstep, only Mr. Meier was lightly jostled and dropped the pencil as well almost silently. “Yes – Muller what because again, you know that I am in the seminar!” The door opens for the second time, Paul comes out, cell phone to the ear, slightly annoyed. Good that the group consists of 5 participants, otherwise invalidate the coach in self-doubt to his raison d ‘ etre. 2. seminar day. Similar atmosphere like on the first day. The trainer asks questions of the participants. No questions. The coach asks itself to repeating frequenting the day before. Hardly any answers. Paul logs. “I was just yesterday in the stress. Filed under: rodney atkins. Morning two customer phone calls during the seminar. Then during the breaks I had to care still the project of Mr. Kohl, who is ill. Even after the end of the seminar, I had two hours to do. Then you expect me to explain more remainders of the yesterday’s content of the seminar.” Frustration creeps in. Impact companies should combine a certain return on investment with any training of its staff. Not only the Seminar costs hit record, also the absence and the following frustration level of the participants must be recorded as an investment. An employee who takes nothing from a seminar, in consequence of the new methods or feels overwhelmed with the new software will be less motivated to push these skills, as the seminar prior to. Also it may cause blocking positions, affecting other employees. Each training should take place outside the walls of own alternatives. Certainly, Germany offers many suitable seminar venues that have an optimal ambience. But why not the employee from a familiar environment remove, to move in a completely detached emotional state. Why not a day earlier the other participants in a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere learn? Why significantly increase the likelihood of a beautiful weather? If the difference between a training in the familiar environment and a completely different and constructive environment once has experienced will know to appreciate the benefits. And the cost? A flight to Malta for example takes less than 2 hours and is usually a lower final price than in Germany with the travel expenses. Your staff will thank you and clear words speak the return on investment. And here’s a tip: first remove the cell phones to your people. Renee Ossowki
