Halelly discusses her path to becoming an L&D professional. To start, she wants to remind others that you cannot come into this field knowing everything, and new practitioners cannot be too hard on themselves.
For example, something she wasn’t properly prepared for was managing behaviors in a training classroom. Fortunately, there are more resources on this topic for new L&D professionals. In the ATD Introduction to Training Certificate, Halelly addresses classroom management extensively—so that others won’t have to learn by trial-and-error like she did.
As another example, Halelly shares how understanding the importance of learning objectives has been key to her training successes—and career success. Halelly briefly explains some of the critical reasons for learning objectives, as well as how to effectively craft them, both of which she says are covered thoroughly in certificate program.
