How Not to Forget What You're Going to Learn This Afternoon

Most of what we are exposed to in training isn’t actually learned. It’s forgotten. In fact only 12% of employees apply what they learn from training to their jobs.  Why is this? Well, “Learning and Development” isn’t an event. It can’t be, even though it’s generally treated that way. It’s a process. Over lunch let’s talk about what it takes to actually make use of any new material you’re exposed to.

Speaker Bio

Dr. Joel M. Rothaizer, MCC, is an executive coach and organizational consultant with extensive training and over 30 years’ experience in understanding the functioning of both organizations and the people within them. His focus is on leadership development, executive coaching and team/organizational effectiveness. He assists leaders in finding versatile styles that are more successful, authentic, and energizing. He assists teams and organizations in creating results-oriented cultures vitalized by collaboration and partnership, incorporating the alignment of clear hierarchy with the engagement and productivity of self-governing teams.

He is an Official Member of the Forbes Coaches Council and the International Coach Federation has designated him a Master Certified Coach, their highest credential. A Licensed Psychologist and Certified Business Coach, he is also on the faculty of the University of Miami Certified Professional Coach Program and Corporate Coach University, as well as a Certified Enneagram Teacher and Lectica Coach. Underpinnings of his work with his partner include Contextual Thinking (understanding behavior by first looking outside the person, rather than inside), Developmental Thinking (the different leadership “operating systems” that are increasingly more effective for dealing with complexity, ambiguity, and rapid change), Complexity, Polarity Management, Leadership Versatility, Practical Neurobiology, Living Systems and Mindfulness.

Joel assists his clients in focusing on root causes rather than on energy-sapping symptoms, and in discovering unique and elegant solutions to seemingly complex problems. His clients have included Government of Canada, Ledcor, HSBC, Exxon-Mobil, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Province of Alberta, General Electric, IBM, RBC, ADP, Dialog, Alberta Health Services, PCL, Edmonton Police Service, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Italian Centre Shop, ATCO Structures & Logistics, University of Calgary, Rehrig Pacific, New Belgium Brewing, PeopleSoft, Hagemeyer, Mellon, Wide Open West, StorageTek, Sanofi-Aventis, Ferrellgas, and Los Alamos National Labs. He and his partner, Sandra Hill, designed and for more than five years delivered the leadership effectiveness training for the top 800 leaders in the City of Edmonton. This program has some of the strongest outcome data in the world.
