Larry Sternberg, Talent Plus ® Fellow and author of Managing to Make a Difference, was interviewed by the Experience Pros on Sound Cloud, discussing the “Follow Shirley Method,” which is a standard way of training new employees. When a new employee starts you, as a manager, grab another employee and asks them to train the new employee. The problem is that you, as a new employee, will only learn what Shirley is doing that particular day. That leaves a lot of gaps in a new employee training.
In addition, Sternberg discusses our theory on development – the growth formula. Learn more about the “Follow Shirley Method” and how best to avoid it, and the Talent Plus ® growth formula by listening to the full interview.
