What is Follow-on Coaching?
Follow-on Coaching is pre-purchased private access to BLT instructors for students to contact after training. Follow-on Coaching is available to purchase in hour segments. This coaching is directly related to the topics presented in the training, and is not part of our design service offerings. Our instructors can answer questions, review materials and labs, and provide real-world experience as it relates to the labs.
“That one 30 minute phone call sure went a long way. You helped me remember a lot and walked me through my specific situation. Saved me days. Thanks for being there!”
Why does BLT offer Follow-on Coaching?
Most Students that attend training will not employ what they’ve learned in class immediately. In fact, many students report they’re 4-12 weeks from utilizing what they’ve learned.
A Small Business Report Studies indicates that, given best-in-class training, an audience recalls 85 percent of information from training after three hours and, if the knowledge is not applied, only 65 percent after three days. A separate Motorola study found that “employees tend to retain only 15 percent of what they learned within three weeks after taking a corporate education course.”
While most students remember broader subjects, it’s often the details – details that matter – that get lost and can cost a project hours, days, even weeks.
A legend in adult training once said, “You can’t teach a kid to ride a bike in a seminar.” Even with extensive labs, the sheer volume of information BLT conveys in each and every class only adds to challenge.
To address these realities, and to best position our Clients for rapid success, BLT offers Follow-on Coaching to our training students: Small slices of time, previously unavailable, to walk students though the details or help them with tasks specific to the course they took.
