No. 57 Educational Consulting in a Nutshell

Private sector industries have a golden opportunity to shape the future of their workforce, and a strategic move towards providing enriching education experiences for both new and existing staff, as well as external groups like youth exploring career options, can be a game-changer. The potential here is vast and immensely valuable, particularly for companies keen on investing in their long-term success.

Forward-thinking global organizations are already rethinking traditional education approaches, opting instead to personally educate their new hires to ensure they stay ahead in rapidly evolving industries. Recognizing and seizing upon such opportunities is key for savvy leaders, and this progressive approach can truly revolutionize the game.

Certification as educators shouldn't deter any company from exploring educational initiatives, especially when it involves enhancing training for current employees or preparing future talent. Education needn't be daunting; when done right, it can be enriching, enlightening, and invigorating. There are countless simple yet effective tools and strategies for unlocking a company's educational potential, with Educational Consulting serving as a crucial first step.

Drawing from their diverse backgrounds, including founding training academies in non-education sectors and extensive experience as educators and district leaders, Jen Wilson, Krisitin Visscher, and Paige Hansen understand the unique challenges faced by non-educators. They bring a wealth of expertise to creating impactful learning experiences, informed by a deep understanding of the multifaceted nature of learning, reliable practices, resourcefulness, adaptability, and openness to new perspectives. Teaching not only imparts knowledge but also reinforces the educator's expertise, making it a profoundly rewarding endeavor.

During this initial meeting we will: identify areas of educational opportunity,  evaluate learning spaces and tools available, interview invested personnel, get a firm grasp on the available in-house resources.  A draft proposal will be submitted for review and discussion within a reasonable time of this meeting.

Upon finalizing the proposal, construction of your tailored staff education plan begins.  The collaborative construction stage takes discovery material into account and includes, but may not be limited to: vision setting, identifying term curriculum targets, selecting tools and strategies for implementation, coordinating a staff training plan. 

This is when the approved plan is put into action and involved staff engage in a series of workshops to learn some core teaching practices and engage with some educational tools and strategies. Should an educational event be imminent, the team could be available to observe and provide immediate, supportive feedback.

Learning is a life long process and the team is always looking for ways to bring new understanding into their work, so this final review stage is a powerful opportunity to mutually acknowledge successes and address areas of opportunity.
