Meenu Iyer, Senior Consultant at Vyaktitva wrote in her previous article, Applying Learning in the Real World: Part 1 - about what it takes to create an impact in the Training Room. "I had written about the challenges that we facilitators face in making training impactful. Continuing from where I left off, in this piece I've captured some of my learning and practices that help me work on that elusive impact." You may resonate with some of these ideas, and have many more to add to what is presented here. Do write back with your insights!
"How many of us have ever failed? What we take back from failure is entirely in our hands. Here are some insights from my own experience of converting failure into learnings, which I continue to use even today." Read the article by Meenakshi Kapur, Senior Consultant at Vyaktitva, to know more about it.
What impact can we show to the sponsors of the training? What is it that we can do in those precious limited hours we get with our audience to inspire them to change? And how does one traverse the confines of the four walls we cohabit during a program to make that impact on each individual? These questions have preyed on my mind in every single program I’ve delivered.
While judgments have a role to play and we need to succeed as well, an additional tool in our armoury that would help us immensely in assessment and consequently effective decision making would be an increased objectivity of the situation. This can only happen if we make a conscious attempt to delink ourselves from ourselves – our emotions, our mental models, our fears, our personal experiences – to see and accept things as they are.
A case study of Vyaktitva's 'Get Real' coaching model illustrates how decision making and actions can be different due to a change in value ranking.
