THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERSTANDING YOUR LEARNERS’ NEEDS
This training module is specifically designed for your organization and tailored to meet your individual manager’s learning styles to enhance their leadership skills. The training module is geared for your managers to meet the learning needs of their departmental employees so that they become the nucleus of this organization. We are the experts in this field, why? Because we don’t simply train your managers’ our training module build high functioning teams, starting with management. We believe that training adults, especially those in managerial positions, is a science. We use principles from the following areas of learning psychology; Behaviorism, Cognitivism, Constructive and Humanitarian into our training modules. I have put together a training module proposal that I feel would help you in meeting the needs of all your departmental employees and at the same assist the managers in gainful knowledge of the various learning styles, obtain skills on scaffolding knowledge within themselves and those employees they are responsible for and learn how to brilliantly use operant conditioning as a tool that will engage your employee’s in the company’s vision, deliver results in revenue, execution, employee retention and productivity. We realize that some managers can be apprehensive to change, which is quite normal. We welcome apprehension and by the end of the training, we guarantee that each of your managers will have the confidence, knowledge and skills to motivate and lead their departmental employees.

Musical intelligence is a sensitivity to rhythm and sound. While they love music, they are also sensitive to sounds in their environments (your warehouse). Using tools such a listening to music while at work can increase productivity.

Managers will learn (interpersonal) how understanding and interacting with others is key to building a solid team through interaction, empathy and using their individual street smarts to get the desired employee behavior and productivity your organization strives for. We will have group activities, classroom lectures and interactive dialogue using tools that you use within your organization that include telephone, audio conferencing, time and attention from the instructor, video conferencing, writing, computer conferencing and e-mail. Another critical and important component of the training module is that your manager’s need to understand is the spatial intelligence that use visual and are good...
