One of our successful programs at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. is our peer-to-peer coaching model. We pair our seasoned pros with new team members to help them learn the ropes. As such, we have found that training benefits the coaches as much as it does the trainees. Here’s how:
• Re-Enforces Skills: As we train others, our Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. team members are defining and refining our own areas of expertise. We’re sharing knowledge we would have benefited from when we first came on board. In addition, we’re able to visualize how our skills benefit the entire organization, and how we can all improve them in order to further goals.
• Develops Communication Skills: Teaching others requires the ability to communicate expectations in a clear, concise manner. We’ve noted at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. that being articulate is a prized trait not only to present products, but also to enable others to become confident in their abilities. Detailed communication and meaningful messages are what helps new associates grasp material.
• Better Career Engagement: We have all discovered that by helping others learn, we find greater job satisfaction. Transferring knowledge to others makes us feel accountable for the firm’s success. We feel more engaged and more valuable in our roles.
Now that you know training is good for your own career, ask if you can take on such a role at your firm. You will be glad you did.
