SEASON OF MISTAKES?
In my part of the world, Spring made a real appearance this week. Rays of sunshine melted snow. Interiors of unprotected cars roasted. It was beautiful.
During these precious early days of Spring, I (like most of you) worked.
I got caught up in what my colleague likes to call “A Training Emergency”.
I ended up facilitating an Organizational Orientation session for 3 people who did not speak English (through an interpreter).
I had success developing an automatic interaction in Storyline that will help me on several projects going forward.
I attended a workshop with Ethan Edwards that gave me an idea to create a different interaction in Storyline.
The week felt like a success, until I was assisting a trainee to get set up for an ELearning course & realized with everything going on this week I forgot to enter her information into the back end of the system.
It’s a 5 minute process to get someone in the system. It wasn’t a big deal to anyone, except me. I hate making foreseeable errors of omission.
Blame it on the Spring? I don’t think so. Blame it on the “training emergency”? Nah, I had time to get it done.
Will I ever make an error like this again (I hope not)? I certainly learned from it. I put a new reminder in outlook to keep it from happening.
In a week filled with positives, a mistake drove my most impactful learning this week.
What about you, what drove your learning this week?
