The paradox of compliance training

Let’s be honest: nobody seems to like compliance training. Many professionals experience compliance training as dull, irrelevant and meaningless. A regular ‘tick the box and move on as quickly as possible’-activity. Learning professionals, consultants, designers, providers, trainers, and facilitators often have a hard time receiving appreciation for all the work they do related to compliance training.

But on the other hand, as ‘regular people’, we care a lot about compliance. We want the medical staff that delivers our healthcare to be compliant. We want the pilot and crew who are in charge of the airplane we fly on to be compliant. We want the people who prepare our medication and food to be compliant. We also want our loved ones to return home safe and sound after a day at work. Welcome to what I call the ‘compliance training paradox’! Time to crack the compliance training code.

The Holy Trinity of the well-rounded professional: Skills-set, Tools set and Mindset

There is a lot of discussion going on lately around up-skilling and the need for new Post Covid-19 skills. The theme is on the agenda of the World Economic Forum and Research firm RedThreat even talks about the Skills Obsession.

Warning alert! It’s not only the right skills that make a well-rounded professional. And good professionals, is what we really need – not only good skills. A well rounded professional combines a good skills-set with a good tools set and the right mindset!

Ger’s Learning Notes #42 – Less is more

As a learning designer and trainer, I always want(ed) to serve my audience in the best way possible. Often, my concern was: do I deliver them enough content? Of course, content doesn’t equal learning.

Over time and by mistake, I learned that too much content could be harmful too; often a bigger risk as compared to ‘too little’. Recently, I had the privilege of being part of the judges’ team of the aNewSpring ‘most inspiring learning journey award’. While reviewing shortlisted candidates, I not only saw some great work but also some examples of ‘content overkill’. That motivated me to take ‘less is more’ as the topic of this episode of the learning notes. And don’t worry: you still get four resources!

Everything ‘skills’ for training providers

Reskilling, upskilling, the skills gap, the skills odyssey, skills-forward approach… The talk of the town in the learniverse is all about skills, skills, skills. Why is this and what’s exactly going on? More importantly, is it relevant for training providers or are the opportunities only for corporate L&D departments? We are finding out together with the people from Mind Tools in this recording. Yeah, you could call it a podcast.

Ger’s Learning Notes #41 – Learning and Pain and Desirable Difficulties

Do you remember the last time or the most awkward moment when your professional values, norms or standards came under pressure? I experienced this many years ago when I had to team up and work with someone else in the design and delivery of a learning program. The target group was what you could refer to as ‘millennials’. I don’t like to stereotype target audiences in this way, but the other person insisted on it.
