The Forgetting Curve is real. We spend a lot of money investing in training because it improves performance, but we know only a small percentage sticks after 30 days without deliberate reinforcement. It’s been a challenge for managers and L&D professionals for decades. Experience a simple, practical method for integrating four key components into development plans for your teams and organizations, and you’ll see your employees stay longer and perform better!

As people managers, our core responsibility is to coach and enable individuals on our teams toward their aspirations and potential. In this experiential learning course, you will discover four core questions to ask when coaching your team to develop mastery of high-impact skills and behaviors required for their roles. Based on multiple research studies and validated in practical application, role-based coaching plans include the success factors that will alleviate on-the-job forgetting: targeted learning, deliberate practice, feedback, and developmental recognition. You will apply your own role or a role that you manage to create a role-based development plan through simple inquiry and skill-building exercises. And you will walk away with a clear process and simple blueprint to develop your teams toward skill mastery, ultimately contributing more frequently and more effectively to your business priorities and outcomes.
