"Follow the Leader", Featuring Elaine Carr

What is your top priority, when implementing a training team? The thing I look for the most are people who want to grow and develop themselves, try out new things, experiment, and make things better—no matter how good things are already. So often training folks focus on developing other people and they get stale doing the same old things all of the time. While I want the team to be grounded in the basics of training, basing whatever they are doing on well-supported, researched-backed findings about learning, I even more want people who are constantly looking to get better at their jobs themselves and who can model that for their learners. It is about what I already know and do, but it’s even more about what I’m learning about and thinking about trying out next.

Elaine has been designing and delivering training and managing the training function for more than 25 years. She is a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) and is currently the Training & Development Manager at ICMI. What is she learning next? Elaine is working on her Level 3 (Master Tradesman) Gamification certification from Sententia and expects to have it completed before the end of 2017.
