The next time you’re tasked with teaching someone something, remember: it’s only easy for you because you already know how to do it. ~ Seth Godin
We see the signs everywhere and read the articles about the Great Reshuffling and with all this change we are bound to be tasked with helping to onboard a new employee or team member, either voluntarily or voluntold.
In either case, I think it’s important as either the trainee or trainer, to exercise a high degree of empathy in these unique times we're in. We all remember what it was like when we were new to the organization or new to the department, learning and memorizing all the faces, names, policies, and let’s not forget those famous acronyms…yikes! It can all be just a bit overwhelming!
I recently started in a new role, which led me to thinking about how we handle those trainee/trainer moments. This topic is one that I explore and chat about in this minicast for May.
Your turn! Agree or disagree? Register to be a guest and let's chat about it. I would welcome the chance to continue the conversation with you too:

Creating Have A Seat...Conversations with Women in the Workplace Podcast was a way for me to engage in weekly conversations with women about their career journey and share them in a fun and supportive way. I truly believe we all have a unique story to tell; we add value in what we do and are rock stars in our own right and I'm excited to bring you these stories every week.
