Will Live Virtual Training Be The Future, Or Is It The Present?

A Pew Research Study in the Fall of 2016 stated that 87% of Americans now have Internet service, this a drastic change from the year 2000 when 48% of Americans did not have Internet service. As you look at the 13% that did not have Internet service in 2016, the majority are going to be over 65 years old, and have an income of less than $30,000.00 annually.

This has changed the way America shops, America buys and Americans learn. Newspapers have ceased publication, and even books are often accessed via an electronic or an audible format. Look around, does anyone not have a device in their hands and communicating with the world from any location around the country.

Today a person is apt to get their news via the Internet, watch their television and movies via the Internet and even communicate with their friends, family and business associates via the world wide web. And in the world of education, today people can be trained, tested and delivered the training for new skills via the Internet. As such Internet based education is the now method of doing this. This is presently done through varied formats, and they may be live events, perhaps it is a book, or even a recorded seminar delivered at the time that the listener sets it. In other words, “real time” for some means at the real time they want it. But there is also the coming of age of the interactive training, where the person can attend the training live, but now the next avenue is here. And that is the live interactive where not only is the instruction live, but it is also delivered where they student can ask questions of the instructor and have the answers delivered via “real time” interaction.

CVC Coaching is moving forward to serve this need, with our new on-line virtual classes that we will be introducing in September of 2017. In this teaching format, you can sign up your company team members for a seminar, but instead of having to transport them to a class (with the resultant downtime and travel costs) and avoiding the expense of travel for the instructor to travel to you. Now you can do this training via an on-line virtual presentation that has the additional features of receiving continuing education credits from both the Chimney Safety Institute Of America and the National Fireplace Institute.

More details will be forthcoming, but this process will allow you to do the periodic training in specialized areas that your people need. It is the way that we will educate in the future, and the future is now.

Just think, you can have your people attend a 1 or 2-hour training in the morning and still headed out to earn profits in the same day. And all of this presented by educators who are certified speakers, trainers, and coaches.

Keep your eyes open for our upcoming announcements of how the new Live Virtual Training will be a way for you to up your game, raise your company expertise and deliver more profits. All of this in a way that cuts your training costs, lessens the downtime and delivers the goods to you.

The Scan

One of the things you develop a knack for as a pilot is called the scan. It’s the ability to glance at your instrument panel and gather and interpret all the information available there without focusing on the panel. That means the airspeed, the altitude, the attitude, the RPMs, the manifold pressure, the fuel, and the heading, for starters. This becomes vastly more complex if you’re flying in instrument conditions and talking to ATC at the same time.

Why can’t you focus on the panel or one instrument? Because if you do, something else will go haywire, and before you know it you’re chasing issues and trying to make adjustments to so many things at once, you find the plane is flying you rather than the other way around. Believe me, it can get overwhelming pretty quickly. Airplanes are complex. You’re keeping track of movement along three axes of possible movement. And all the information on the panel is relevant to that task.

So, you are taught to develop the ability to scan, to see, understand it all at a glance, and respond appropriately. Needless to say, this takes practice and time. It’s an ability that evolves the more you fly. It is usually well established before you get into instrument flying, or you will fail at that task.

We have developed instrument panels for business, too. We call them dashboards. They contain the most important and hopefully the most up to date information about the health and direction of your business. You don’t have to absorb the information there at a glance, but you do have to study them regularly – or your ability to navigate your business through the daily the perils and challenges that litter your path will be compromised.

What is on those dashboards depends to some degree what you and your CFO feel are the best indicators for you to be abreast of. They will probably contain sales and cost information, as well as information on marketing, customers, employee performance, physical assets, cash, etc.

However, no matter what info is on those dashboards, if you’re not reviewing them very regularly and making whatever adjustments are necessary, they will be utterly useless for you. Because, like flying an airplane, things can go wrong pretty quickly with any business. And if you’re not there to see those trends as they develop and adjust, you can lose control of the whole thing.
