The best part of running Growing Talent is to see the growth in Associates on the journey. So my favourite part is reading their evaluations at the end of the Orientation Week.
This is carried out prior to them going on site and is intended to boost self-esteem and give guidance on communication in the workplace etc.
So what did they learn?
‘I am positive in the eyes of others as well as myself’
‘That I still have the fight and strength within to achieve any goal I aim for’
‘I can be more confident than I thought I could be’
‘That I am capable of more’
‘I REALLY love recycling’
‘It’s ok to be afraid, it’s how you overcome that obstacle’
‘I can do it!’
‘I learnt I am pretty well spoken and ow to be a little more confident’
‘I’m stronger than I thought’
‘Determination has set in’
‘I can do things I never thought possible’
‘Yes I can do anything with a bit of motivation’
‘It made me a better person and how to deal with things better’
‘I can meet new people and enjoy time spent with they’.
Having written and deliver Growing Talent, I’m not complacent to believe I do everything right. I include a section on me as a trainer on the Associates end evaluation forms just to keep me on my toes and effective…… What did you think of Jane James, the trainer?
‘Great guide, really clear and helpful’
‘Hardworking, caring, 100% behind all of growing talent associates, very good at her role’
‘Jane is very helpful and insightful but also nice to talk to about anything that’s bothering us’
‘Very helpful and knowledgeable’
‘Brilliant, nurturing, encouraging – an amazing mentor’
‘Brilliant mentor and very inspiring’
‘Jane has been huge help and I feel very comfortable with telling her about any difficulties. She has been very supportive’.
‘Lovely, strong, supporting lady. Would love to be kept in contact with her for many years’.
‘A bundle of information, knowledge & strength’
‘Such an inspiration – amazing!’
It’s good to know from those we work with how we are doing. Why not try giving those you work with an evaluation on you?
