Business Need: Deliver Educational Programs for Small Business Start-Ups
A small business incubator at a local college needed to provide educational programs for businesses getting ready to scale up.
Instructional Approach: Provide a Series of Workshops Offering Valuable Information to Growing Small Businesses
Talent development and the importance of establishing a learning culture is an often-overlooked way to enhance a business’s success. This course was designed to inform owners about the advantages of investing time and effort in establishing talent development programs and fostering a culture of learning as they grow their business and add employees.
Many business owners preferred a personal, face-to-face interaction. However, they had little time to spend in classes.
I developed a three-part workshop. For three weeks, business owners attended one-hour sessions at lunchtime. This approach provided personal interaction and fit into busy schedules.
Session 1 – Hidden Secret to Success
The first class in the series explains why a talent development program is important for business success. It explains the advantages of training and introduces an overview of the ROI of investing in training employees. It also explains the advantages of talent development as a recruitment and retention tool.
