After the Leadership Class: The Challenge of Transforming Learning into Performance
September 11, 2015 -- 11:30 a.m. -1:15 p.m.
As trainers and facilitators of leadership courses, we’re often told by supervisors and clients (and we often tell ourselves), “If the participants can each walk out of this course with ONE THING, then it was a success.” And some of those participants may actually go back and start implementing that ONE THING, but a majority won’t on their own - which means the needle isn’t really moving. One of the biggest obstacles to participants applying what they learn is lack of an on-going support system. In this presentation, members will discuss strategies for integration and support, be provided a tool to evaluate their support processes, and leave being able to identify steps for improving their own programs.
Andrew Engelbrecht serves as Senior Consultant for Learning Unlimited Corporation (LUC) in Tulsa, OK. He was first certified as a ropes course facilitator in 1991 and contracted with Learning Unlimited while in college, so returning to LUC in early 2014 was a homecoming of sorts. Over those intervening 20+ years he lived and worked in a wide variety of environments - including 8 years in higher education and 3+ years with the YMCA of Greater Tulsa - and with an even more diverse group of people, and brings that healthy world-view into all of his interactions and consulting. He is an Accredited Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Facilitator; delivers multiple other programs for LUC, including Everything DiSC™ workshops and Core Leadership Skills; and is leading LUC’s L.E.A.D.-ON project, designing & implementing cloud-based, post-course support for learners.
Andrew grew up in Sapulpa, OK, and holds a B.A. in Organizational Communication from the University of Oklahoma (BOOMER!). A huge live music enthusiast, he also enjoys singing karaoke and DJ’ing, and stays active playing indoor and outdoor soccer, golf, softball, volleyball, and bowling.
