Transfer of Learning Pocketbook

Transfer of learning is the application, back at work, of knowledge, skills and attitudes obtained in learning situations. The amount of learning that is transferred back to the workplace after a training event is the key measure of the success of that training. There is, after all, no point carrying out the training if nothing changes as a result of it. But the transfer doesn't only depend on how good the training is. A number of key factors have to be in place. In the Transfer of Learning Pocketbook, authors Dr Paul Donovan and John Townsend identify 17 factors that determine whether or not new learning will be transferred and used to improve job performance. After extensive research within the HR community, the factors were identified and then prioritised according to their impact on return on training investment. The book sets out each of the 17 factors in turn before giving the reader 70 specific action tips, grouped into five sections that follow the five stages of the training process. Donovan and Townsend have collaborated on several other Pocketbooks, including the highly-regarded Training Evaluation and Training Needs Analysis.

The Interviewer's Pocketbook has had a major overhaul in this new third edition and now focuses exclusively on the recruitment interview. The opening chapters look in detail at the necessary skills for conducting an interview: questioning techniques, listening skills and interpretation of body language. Types of question are explored, with ways in which to use them, as well as questions to avoid asking, while a helpful example interview shows the techniques in action. Later chapters cover preparing for and conducting the interview, including looking at job descriptions and specifications, preparing evidence questions, and evaluation of candidates.

Hot on the heels of their success with The Icebreakers Pocketbook, authors Alan Evans and Paul Tizzard have once again harnessed their enthusiasm and creativity to write The Openers & Closers Pocketbook - a collection of themed and non-themed activities to give training workshops effective and memorable beginnings and endings. 'This is a selection of short exercises and pithy stories to top and tail courses', says Tizzard. 'We've included quick icebreakers and lengthier, more involved activities, as well as short anecdotes to set the tone.' The emphasis of The Openers & Closers Pocketbook is on simple activities that require the minimum amount of preparation - in the authors' words, 'grab and go' activities that will give trainers new and imaginative ways to enhance their training delivery.

Ninety percent of all training is a waste of time (reveals a US investigation) either because the training is not transferred into the workplace, or the training design/delivery is poor or the participants are unable/unwilling to learn. The Learning Needs Analysis Pocketbook will ensure that your people development solutions are tied to the organisation's strategic plans and objectives. The authors simplify the analysis process and demonstrate that it can be strategic, rewarding, career-enhancing and, even, fun! The book is divided into three sections: 1. The Six Windows: a method of looking into the organisation to identify the most pressing and results-oriented learning needs. 2. The 10 Point Training Plan: the document, spreadsheet or wall chart where you can record all your notes from the learning needs investigation and plan for each training course or event. 3. The Tool Box: to help you do a great job at every step of the process.

Coaching is aimed at improving performance at work. This is done by turning the activities people do into learning situations, in a planned way and under guidance. The Coaching Pocketbook defines the coach's role and explains how coaching differs from the other 'helping skills' of advising, instructing, counselling and mentoring. There are four key stages to coaching, namely assessing current performance levels, setting outcomes for learning, agreeing tactics/initiating action, and giving feedback. The author explains each stage and then moves on to summarise the various skills required. Next, the opportunities for coaching and the potential pitfalls are highlighted. A checklist and a case study end the Pocketbook on a practical note. "Encapsulated my belief in the potential of people and showed me how to translate this into appropriate action" "For UK plc to win a global marketplace it is essential for managers and leaders to understand learning and to develop coaching skills. This pocketbook provides a very readable insight into understanding the challenge." "An amazing amount of ground has been covered in this little book - it unravels a complex subject in a very practical and easy to understand format."
