What are you doing with your workforce?

Let’s have a serious chat for a minute.

The world of business is changing. You can’t get away with doing things the old way anymore. It just won’t work, and that includes the idea of not training your workforce. It’s this destructive way of thinking that has resulted in businesses struggling (now, more than ever) to keep qualified talent.

Just take a look at the statistics:

  • Seven out of ten respondents in a 2015 survey said that job-related training and development opportunities directly influence their decision to stay with a company (CED Magazine).

  • Companies with fewer than 100 employees gave only 12 minutes of manager training every six months. Organizations with 100 - 500 employees provided just 6 minutes (HR Professionals Magazine).

  • A long-term project commissioned by the Middlesex University for Work Based Learning discovered from a sample of 4,300, 74% of respondents felt they weren’t achieving their full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities (Middlesex University).

So, what’s really going on?

Employee development is a mere afterthought in the workplace and current (and prospective) employees aren’t having it! They want opportunities to develop their skills and grow at a company that is dedicated to their overall well-being and advancement. They desire mentorship, motivation, and training… but, guess what? If they don’t get it, they’ll just go somewhere else!

The bigger question is: What are you going to do about it?

Why Training by Nelle Workshops?

The first step you can take to create a strong culture of employee development is to provide your people with the appropriate resources they need to succeed. The Training by Nelle workshops are a great place start.

Why? TBN workshops maximize the basic elements of a learning-centric workshop by:

  • Blending theory and practice with dynamic facilitation

  • Leveraging emerging technology to promote social learning

  • Connecting learning principles with real world scenarios & workplace situations

  • Encouraging participants to harness their own inner creativity for self-discovery and professional growth

Each aspect of a Training by Nelle workshop is carefully crafted - from the presentation style to the customized activities. No cookie-cutter-run-of-the-mill workshops here. Training by Nelle is always authentic, timely, unique, and engaging.

At the end of the day, it’s not a training event - it’s an experience.

Now remember, the Training by Nelle workshops are only the first step in honing your employee talent. If you would like to create a customized on-going training (or coaching) program, contact me directly so we can discuss your needs.

I also offer on-demand consultations for your convenience.

Remember: When your employees are well-trained, your business performance improves - and in turn, boosts your bottom line. In fact, studies show that companies that invest in employee training enjoy 24% higher profit margin versus companies who don’t (ASTD).


Oh, and I’m sure you want to know who Nelle is…

Yes. That’s me pictured above on the right! I am the owner of Training by Nelle LLC and I’m a bit of an enthusiast for all things employee development related - coaching, learning / training and development, mentorship, etc.

I have a BH in Communications and a MS in Organizational Development & Leadership, and I'm all about innovation and delivering a fresh approach to training - a true disrupter, if you will.

I was inspired to create the Training by Nelle workshops because of my passion for helping others reach their full potential through leadership oriented activities and soft skills development and coaching.

But I wanted to deliver that value in a captivating, more non-traditional way.

I’ve sat in on countless (and I mean countless) instructor-led workshops on development topics of all kinds, but always felt like something was missing… After awhile all the workshops seemed to start looking the same: same techniques, same settings, and the same repetitive off-the-shelf material. I’d sit and wonder, where was the creativity and imagination, especially given all of the tools and resources out there? This isn’t how it should be.

I wanted to do something different. Evoke energy, enthusiasm, and higher levels of engagement that put the learner in the driver seat. I wanted to deliver an experience that was personalized and customized to the participant because learning wasn’t a one-size-fits all deal.

I wanted to develop workshops where people could connect - physically - and not hide behind technology to avoid personal communication or use it to mask problems. I wanted to create a learning environment that was welcoming, attractive, and addressed the relevant areas emerging professionals are looking to improve on.

And so, Training by Nelle was born - a sophisticated and branded blend of employee development workshops. And the rest is history…

So now that you know a little bit more about me, I’d like to get to know more about you. I want to help you produce the competent and confident workforce you deserve so your business can thrive.

So let’s talk and get you booked for a workshop.

Talk to you soon!
