The L&d Pivot Point: Performance Improvement Consulting
We are frequently implored to move beyond 'taking orders for courses' and starting to ask about what the real needs are. Further, we're told that there may be alternatives to courses. However, the open question is what should we do, and how? In this most recent of his books, Guy W. Wallace, one of our premier promoters of performance consulting, lets us in on his tried and tested practices. Drilling down in greater depth as he goes, Guy guides us through the processes and tools that have worked for him. In his inimitable style, he shares the lessons he's learned and the foundational leaders who've helped him along the way. We also are exposed to his well-earned tips and tricks that advise us on the unpacked nuances of the politics as well as the pragmatics. Along the way, you'll be exposed to rigor in doing things the right way. This includes the ways you work with your stakeholders, gather data, and structure your findings. You'll be equipped with a tried and tested process to work with clients from initial queries through to releasing a viable solution. Guy's earned a well-deserved reputation for a practical approach, and here he unpacks it for us. Come learn how to do performance consulting right!
