Deepening expertise and sharing knowledge with an organization starts with establishing the right team to lead and facilitate this training. For nearly 60 years, our Train-the-Trainer programs, offered through our Leadership Development Institute (LDI), have been preparing Program Leaders within organizations with a blend of in-depth concept knowledge and instructor training.
At Kepner-Tregoe, we intentionally use the term Program Leader, rather than instructor or trainer, because the responsibilities include activities outside of the typical workshop environment. Through the Train-the-Trainer workshops, we equip Program Leaders to lead workshops and serve as rational thinking consultants who develop and implement programs designed to drive sustainability and align your organization for success. This experience prepares select employees to become KT Program Leaders, certified to conduct in-house KT workshops.
Over the years, providing training with our Program Leaders has proven to be one of the most effective ways to embed Kepner-Tregoe Clear Thinking capabilities into an organization.
Through our Train-the-Trainer workshops, your organization will benefit by:
- Maximizing in-house skill development capability.
- Adding advanced process skills to your teams.
- Customizing the workshop for different audiences and providing authentic examples related to the participants’ own environment.
- Increasing results from investment into skill development.
An LDI is an intensive experience that provides participants with in-depth concept knowledge and instructor training capabilities. It is a key part of a larger Program Leader development process that begins with the identification of qualified candidates and ends with a successful “first teach.”
Although the LDI is a challenging experience, most Program Leaders report that it brings additional value to their organizations and an awareness of new talents and thinking processes that result in a powerful, and often life- and career-enhancing experience.
Step One: The first step to becoming a Program Leader is attendance at an "end-user" workshop taught by a Kepner-Tregoe professional (e.g. KT Problem Solving & Decision Making). During the workshop, Program Leader candidates become familiar with the individual Kepner-Tregoe processes, apply them to real job issues, and observe the roles and responsibilities of the instructor.
Step Two: After successfully completing the workshop, candidates are interviewed by a Kepner-Tregoe professional and selected based on pre-set criteria.
Step Three: Attendance at an LDI is the third step in the Program Leader process. The LDI is usually about a 10-day commitment, depending on the needs of the group. Participants spend eight or more hours a day in classroom training and teaching practice, and on average, an additional four hours are spent preparing in the evening. The LDI is a rigorous but extremely rewarding learning experience. It allows participants to establish a deeper conceptual understanding of the four processes and how to apply them back on the job. Equally important, participants develop and refine their skills as classroom instructors and process facilitators.
Step Four: Returning from an LDI, Program Leader candidates spend extensive time preparing for their first in-house workshop (usually requires 40+ hours). A Kepner-Tregoe professional is present during this first teach for guidance, assistance, and to ensure that the program is properly presented. A successful first teach allows the candidate to become certified as a Program Leader.
Building Capability for Your Organization
At Kepner-Tregoe, our goal is to build true capability and transfer knowledge within your people and organization. This is not achieved by skill development alone. Adoption is the driver of results. That’s why we work with you to maximize the ROI from your “people investment” by:
- Clarifying your capability development objectives and how they tie to your business success.
- Identifying areas of emphasis for development and how the new skills will be applied inside your business.
- Helping you identify critical elements in your company’s performance environment that support or hinder the capability development process.
- Pre- and post-skill development support and coaching to ensure we maximize the skills transfer from the “workshop room” into the real world.
