I empower IT learners to achieve their training goals.
During our team's morning "huddle," we discuss our daily goals, accomplishments, and potential obstacles. After some high fives, I buckle down and contact my roster of learners for the day to assess whether they would benefit from the one-on-one mentorship / coaching that CBT Nuggets provides as part of our IT training program. Together, we work on strategies to help stay on track. My favorite part of the day is telling a student that they will achieve great things -- and really believing it.
Here's the first step for professionals
For everyone: BANISH FEAR. You are more capable than you think you are. The people, experiences, achievements, challenges, celebrations, and setbacks that you will face are gifts that are worthy of you, and you of them. At the end of the day, you must ask yourself, "what did I learn today and how can I use my learning to help others?" Welcome mistakes, reward yourself with understanding, and know -- in the depths of your soul -- that nobody has power over you except yourself.
