The Best Secret to Getting Good New Hires

August 1, 2014 at 5:06 pm Leave a comment

Ever tear your hair out with your employees? Part of avoiding that is hiring the right people, and I talk about my secrets in the audio training for Directors. But there is more to it: setting them on the right track to start with. That is about training.  I know you wish I could be there to do that for you. Well, I could be — on CDs.

Some directors already used a pre-service tool, but they asked me to make a Pre-Service Manual for them. Other material just didn’t meet their needs. They said, some were out-dated and one was just too fluffy without the content they needed.  So Sharon made a pre-service manual for them — and for you.

I put the 8 hours that Texas Licensing requires before you let an employee in the classroom. There are some activities to do, to cement the learning. There are photocopiable multiple choice tests. There is even a certificate you can photocopy — so you can use it again and again.

Let me know what else you need.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas

“Sharon has strong abilities in critical thinking. She also has excellent instincts in grasping issues before all the information has been revealed. There have been some occasions where I assumed what she was saying could not possibly be accurate, but in the end she was proved right when the facts were revealed. I trust (or at least pay serious attention) to her opinions.” Walter Lee, former Engineer, Retired Minister PC(USA), QVR Board Member
