Growing Talent is not a ‘refer and forget programme’. It’s not just about the Growing Talent Associates being evaluated for their roles but for them to evaluate all parts of Growing Talent too! We all have a voice – let’s use them!
What was the best part of the orientation Week?
‘Learning about the 5Ps and building the Social Enterprise’
‘Learning how to cope with stress’
‘The presentations and meeting the employers’
‘Learning more communication skills’
‘The Art Therapy class’
‘Personally for me it was how to breath properly and deal with pressure’
What was it like delivering your Social Enterprise idea to a panel of managers?
‘I was slightly nervous, however, I did better than I expected to do using the skills taught over the week’
‘I was more nervous than I though I would be – but overall it was positive and showed me I can be more confident’
‘I was nervous but covered everything I’d prepared and delivered it confidently too’
‘I was so nervous but did it – and won – I’m so proud of myself’
‘I was nervous at the start but the more I talked about my idea the more confident I grew’
‘This for me was the highlight of the week. Made me develop my thoughts, do meaningful research and overcome nerves. The judges were really welcoming’
This is the question I always dread on the evaluations!: –
What are your thoughts on the trainer – Jane James?
‘She is very knowledgeable, warm and humane whilst also strict and no surprises. Her programme is the most helpful opportunity I’ve had’
‘Jane was nice, helpful and wise’
‘Very nice and helpful. Engaging and interesting’
‘Great – Jane is very knowledgeable about the business world and delivers a very positive, honest approach.’
‘I think Jane is genuinely down to earth and to the point. She doesn’t mince her words. I found her very helpful and understanding this week.’
Asked ‘if you could go back to the beginning – would you still apply for Growing Talent?
I’ve very pleased to say there was a resounding YES!
Check back to see how the guys get on over the coming weeks…..
