Training Session Portfolio PieceLori MitchellGrand Canyon University: COM-472Melissa Davis February 27, 2016

Throughout the Training and Development course, I have developed a Problem Solving Training for an organization called Manette Meetings. I facilitated the session for a group of participants that are in the customer service field that I felt could benefit from enhancing their problem solving sills. This portfolio is a compilation of the training materials that I created including the needs assessment. The training materials are the facilitation guide, the agenda, the participant guide, the PowerPoint presentation, job aid, and end of training survey. There is also a Problem Solving Jeopardy Game that I designed that is a stand-alone additional document.The training materials for this course are defined as: Facilitation Guide: A tool to provide a step by step guide to that the trainer will be able to access the necessary tools to train the session. Agenda: An outline to provide a roadmap to the participants so they are aware of what topics will be covered during the session. Participant Guide: A valuable resource that the participants will complete in training and be able to use a resource to reference back to as needed. PowerPoint Presentation: A visual tool for the trainer to utilize in class to aid in facilitation. End of the Training Survey: Utilized to help the trainer and the developers to know what went well and what did not in order to make any adjustments. Job Aid: A resource that the event planners can reference to after training. Jeopardy Game: A fun way to review the training and quiz the trainees to ensure they understand the concepts that were taught.

Problem Solving Introduction

In order to get buy in of the course from the participants, you must effectively provide a strong introduction.

Sample introduction:

You are probably wondering why you are here today. You are here today because during the needs assessment that was conducted it seems that problem solving skills were needed for Meeting, Convention, and Event Planners.

It is important for you to utilize proper problem solving skills to help your clients as well as help to grow Manette Meetings. I have invited the management team to join us so they can help to reinforce the skills you learn today during your coaching sessions. Together we will help enhance the problem solving skills you already possess.

At your desk you have a participant guide that you will fill out as we go through the training. The participant guide will be a reference for you to use after class when you need assistance in your problem solving. Please take additional notes on the notes pages at the end of your participant guide as we go along. Instruction Notes

Follow the notes on the Problem Solving PowerPoint to assist in facilitation of the class. Add in your own experience as well as any examples to help the participants learn the material.

You only have an hour to complete the session. In the event that you run out of time, you will need to remove the Jeopardy game. This should be a last resort as it is a great fun way to assess the learners.

At the end of the session, hand out the end of the training survey and instruct the group to place them in the survey box when completed. How to handle classroom conflict

In any group setting you may run into conflict with the participants amongst each other or with you as the trainer. Conflict can be good because it helps people to find common ground (866Seminars, 2015). However, it can be a challenge in a classroom setting and needs to be addressed as soon as conflict arises. Keep in mind that vocal cues conflict with verbal messages, the audience will typically put more weight on the vocal messages (Beebe & Mottet, 2014). Choose your words wisely.

How to handle classroom conflict - Continued

Here are five steps you can follow to handle conflict if should arise:

Step 1: Identify the source of the conflict (AMA, 2014). Find out why there is a conflict and what started it. Step 2: Look beyond the incident (AMA, 2014) Do not focus on the incident, look past it to find ways to resolve the conflict. Step 3: Request solutions (AMA, 2014) Ask the participants for solutions. Step 4: Identify solutions both disputants can support (AMA, 2014) Find ways to mutually resolve the conflict. Step 5: Agreement (AMA, 2014) Implement a mutual agreement with the participants. After the conflict is resolved, apologize to the entire class and move back to where you left off reviewing any necessary material.Interaction with Participants

This session is designed with all learning styles in mind and is not designed as a lecture. As the facilitator it will be important for you to interact with the trainees throughout the session.

Here are some ways that you will interact with the trainees:

PowerPoint Presentation: While facilitating add in any additional scenarios and examples to help engage the class. Role-Play: As the trainees are working on their scenario presentations, walk around and assist as they need you to without giving out the answers. Have the trainees come up with their own solutions. Jeopardy: You will be the host/hostess to the Jeopardy Game. As the trainees play the game cheer them on and do not take sides to add to any competition.

Interaction with Participants - Continued

Here are 9 additional tips to help you make the session interactive:

1. Dont take it so darn seriously (Mindflash, 2011): There is no perfect training. Relax and remember you are the subject matter expert. The trainees do not know what to expect or if you make a mistake. The important thing is learn from your mistakes for the next session.2. Have a conversation (Mindflash, 2011): Talk with the trainees and avoid talking at them (Mindflash, 2011). The session should flow with conversation from you as well as your trainees. If you have shy trainees encourage them to speak. Make the environment comfortable to where the trainees fell welcome to participate.3. Speak their language (Mindflash, 2011): Many positions have different lingo/jargon that they use in their daily interactions. Learn the lingo/jargon of your participants. Avoid any lingo/jargon that is not used in their department to avoid confusion or miscommunication.4. Let a little bit of you out (Mindflash, 2011): Play music, show pictures, share relation stories that you have experiment. The more comfortable the trainees are with you the more they will be engaged. This is a great way to build rapport. 5. Let conversations linger (Mindflash, 2011): If the conversation is relevant to the topic, let the participants speak. Be mindful of not going over the session time.6. Smile. Be energetic. Be happy to be there (Mindflash, 2011): Even if you are having a bad day, do not let your trainees know it. Be excited about the topic and training them. If you are positive and excited your trainees will follow.7. Treat people like responsible adults (Mindflash, 2011): Have training ground rules, but treat the trainees like the adults that they are. You will lose their respect if you treat them any less.8. Ask the class (Mindflash, 2011): Ask questions throughout the session. This is engaging as well as a way for you to assess the transfer of learning. 9. Practice, practice, practice (Mindflash, 2011): Allow the trainees time to practice and you assist in the practice. Be available for questions as well as to be a role-play partner when needed. Conclusion

Remember that no training session is perfect. Each session may have its own style and things that you can add as you facilitate more sessions. Following the facilitation guide will assist you in creating a good experience with the session.

PowerPoint Presentation

Welcome to Problem Solving Training.You are probably wondering why you are here today. You are here today because during the needs assessment that was conducted it seems that problem solving skills were needed for Meeting, Convention, and Event Planners. It is important for you to utilize proper problem solving skills to help your clients as well as help to grow Manette Meetings. I have invited the management team to join us so they can help to reinforce the skills you learn today during your coaching sessions. Together we will help enhance the problem solving skills you already possess. At your desk you have a participant guide that you will fill out as we go through the training. The participant guide will be a reference for you to use after class when you need assistance in your problem solving. Please take additional notes on the notes pages at the end of your participant guide as we go along. Purpose: This slide will help explain why the trainees are attending the training.

To start of the session, I would like to get your brains to start to flow in a problem solving way. I am sure there are many of you, like myself who do not like math. My apologies in advance for this activity. At the end of the activity, I will explain how it ties into our training today.In your group you have 3 short problems to solve. Write each answer on the whiteboards. You only have 3 minutes to solve them. Debrief: Like many of you, I used to think that math was useless in everyday careers, but that is not true. Math does help you with your problem solving skills that you will use in your everyday interactions. I chose to have the problems as a part of the training to help tie the pieces together. Lets discuss our agenda today.Purpose: The ice breaker will help the trainees to get into a problem solving mindset as well as get to know each other.

This session will cover the following: Problem Solving Steps: You all possess problem solving skills or you would not have been blessed with your position. We will review a simple four step process to help you when you need to use the skills. Problem Solving Role Play: We will have some time to practice the steps that you learn in real-life scenarios via a role-play in front of the class. Problem Solving Jeopardy: We only have a short time, but we will have some fun playing a quick round of jeopardy to help reinforce the skills we learned. Wrap-Up: Our wrap-up will provide a recap of the training reinforcing how you can implement the training into your daily interactions. Purpose: The agenda will provide a roadmap of the session so the trainees know what to expect during the training.

Before I provide the short four step problem solving steps, I felt it was important to remind you all the importance of an apology. When there is a problem, a client has been inconvenienced. It is important that you apologize immediately when the problem is identified. Waiting to apologize only makes the problem worse. Apologize empathically as you mean it. Be cautious on the number of apologies as too many apologies will lose the meaning. Also, choose your words wisely. Some people can get away with saying Im sorry, where others need to say I apologize to provide the meaning behind it. If one doesnt seem to work for you switch it up. In both choices be sure that you have a sincere tone and that your body language matches for in person interactions.We are now ready to move on to solve problems.Purpose: Explaining apologizing as well as having group interaction will help the trainees to see how apologizing ties into the problem solving process.

Just as detectives need to solve crimes, as an Event Planner, you have problems to solve. Here are four simple steps to help you solve problems. You will find on page 4 in your participant guide that you Step 1: Defining the problem (Mind Tools, 2016) Take a step back to analyze what they true issue is. Identifying the true issue is the only way to solve the issue. If you try to solve what may look to be the problem and it turns out that was not the problem, you will waste time. Your client will get aggravated and potentially leave the company. Step 2: Generating alternatives (Mind Tools, 2016) Provide options to your clients that will help to resolve the issue. It is important that you provide them the options and allow them to make the decision that works best for them. They want to be a part of making decisions. Feel free to add in your suggestions if the client asks for them. Step 3: Evaluating and selecting alternatives (Mind Tools, 2016): Collaborate with your client to help them make the best solution. Add in any experiences you have seen to help them see all sides. If alternatives are an option, add them in for the client. Remember it is ultimately their decision to make, do not get upset if they do not go with a decision you would have made. Step 4: Implementing solutions (Mind Tools, 2016) The final step is where the problem is solved. Hopefully it is a solution that has made your client happy. Remember there are times where you can do your all, but some clients just may not be happy no matter what you do. As long as you have tried and involved your manager if needed to provide them the best customer service and solutions, you have done your job.

Now its time to practice the steps with some event scenarios that we have witnessed.Purpose: This is the section the trainees will learn the problem solving steps to apply to their everyday interactions with their clients.

In your groups you will evaluate the problem and come up with the solution using the steps we spoke about. After you are finished, each group will role play your scenario in front of the class. Feel free to add in any additional tips.Purpose: Through role-play the trainees will have a chance to practice the problem solving steps in a safe environment. They will make mistakes, but I will be there to guide them. This will also give me a chance to assess the transfer of learning and provide additional tips to help the trainees.

We will take a few minutes to have fun playing a quick round of Jeopardy. Purpose: The Jeopardy is a fun way to reinforce the learning as well as provide me another way to assess that the trainees understand the concept.

In this session you learned: Apologize: How to and when to apologize Problem Solving Steps: What are the four steps? Throw ball to a trainee to ask what the first step is and an example. Then have that trainee throw the ball to another trainee and continue until all 4 steps are reviewed. Implement: How will you implement the four steps? Use the ball to throw to all trainees and have them each share how they will implement the steps. Questions?Purpose: During the Wrap-Up, we can recap what the training session involved as well as give the trainees another opportunity to ask any last minute questions. This is also my last chance to observe if any trainees had any issues learning the material. I will be able to provide a detailed follow-up with the management team.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to attend training today. I hope you have a great day and fun being problem solving detectives.

Problem Solving Job Aid

In order to effectively problem solve you must follow the basic four step process.

Step 1: Defining the problem (Mind Tools, 2016) Take a step back to analyze what they true issue is. Identifying the true issue is the only way to solve the issue. If you try to solve what may look to be the problem and it turns out that was not the problem, you will waste time. Your client will get aggravated and potentially leave the company. Step 2: Generating alternatives (Mind Tools, 2016) Provide options to your clients that will help to resolve the issue. It is important that you provide them the options and allow them to make the decision that works best for them. They want to be a part of making decisions. Feel free to add in your suggestions if the client asks for them. Step 3: Evaluating and selecting alternatives (Mind Tools, 2016): Collaborate with your client to help them make the best solution. Add in any experiences you have seen to help them see all sides. If alternatives are an option, add them in for the client. Remember it is ultimately their decision to make, do not get upset if they do not go with a decision you would have made. Step 4: Implementing solutions (Mind Tools, 2016) The final step is where the problem is solved. Hopefully it is a solution that has made your client happy. Remember there are times where you can do your all, but some clients just may not be happy no matter what you do. As long as you have tried and involved your manager if needed to provide them the best customer service and solutions, you have done your job.
