When to start training your employees

dv631010.jpgWhen you hire a new employee you have about a week to set him/her up for success or failure. During the interview: the prospective employee does not really think about anything other than ” I need to get this job.” When the job offer is made: Employee is the happiest. New job represents a new beginning a fresh new start. (s)he knows all the things this new job will bring. Since it’s a new job non of the negative associations with the current employer exists. (They didn’t know squat anyways.) First day at the job: Mostly nervous employee takes her time at the parking lot feeling like a kid who just transfers into a new school. Not knowing cliques, not knowing the culture, and not knowing who runs the show. When the new employee walks thru the front door starting with the first shaky step she is taking in all she can. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME YOUR NEW EMPLOYEE CAN BE TRAINED. If you don’t start training at this moment, from here on you will be spending most of your time un-training the employee until she leaves.

I’m going Interactive

Finally the computer technology has caught up with my vision, and I can finally teach.

The biggest reason why I’ve been lagging on my posts is because I’ve been trying to learn about Interactive learning environments.  Don’t get me wrong. I’m still learning, but I’m confident starting early 2008 I will have interactive classrooms for you to learn anything/everything you wanted to learn from me.

Stay tuned

Americans are reading less. Yeeeeah

I just heard on NPR that reading numbers are down again.

Less and less Americans are reading. Study cited 58% of the college grads who read books don’t pass page 18.

This is great news for me other reader alike . As long as we’re willing to read and learn continuously we can’t help but become more valuable. If nothing else for our ability to learn.

I just wish the unemployment office required people on welfare to read to collect welfare checks.
