Julie Ann presented a training to our managers and supervisors. I appreciated Julie Ann’s steps of engaging of our Leadership Team in preparation of the training. She was timely about all items and steps of the process.
The training was engaging to all staff in attendance. Her use of humor was appropriate and enjoyable. The staff evaluation and feedback from her training was very positive and many mentioned appreciating how she emphasized the importance of being fully present. Julie Ann held a follow up call with the majority of the attendees. Understanding more about what motivates others was one of the great outcomes from her presentation. Some shared they are using the training points for not only work but applying to their home life with success.
The written evaluations demonstrated that staff who attended shared many ways they would use the tools and experience with other staff with whom they interact but may not supervise. They also took that opportunity to suggest work meetings or situations going forward that may lend themselves to this training content and activities. Finally, many indicated a value in working again with Julie Ann for additional training and consultation to help expand her message to all staff rather than only to the managers/supervisors.
