How Team Training Can Benefit Your Organization

See Dojo360

Many employers understand the value of employee development to their organizations, especially if conducted in a personalized manner. However, this understanding may lead to deemphasizing team training, meaning that your employees may lack the skills to make your organization greater than the sum of its parts. If you want to create a team training program that sets your staff up for success, Dojo360 is the learning engagement platform built for everyone, everywhere. We are Turning, and we have leveraged our e³ philosophy of equity, evidence, and engagement to facilitate successful team training experiences for learners of all ability levels.

What Is Team Training and Why Is It So Important?

Team training encompasses all training where teams are used to increase an individual's ability to perform their daily tasks, improve an individual's ability to perform as part of a team, and boost overall team performance. The benefits are plentiful, from allowing newer hires to learn from their more experienced colleagues to encouraging the development of adaptability and learning agility. Team training also represents a great opportunity to get employees to buy into your organization's broader company culture, improving employee engagement and productivity.

Can I Really Launch a Team Training Program Remotely?

Encouraging collaboration between team members who aren't in the same room is a daunting challenge, but Dojo360 is up to it. Here are four key aspects of any great team training program and how our platform can help you execute them:

  1. Encourage Collaboration
  2. Don't give your employees a series of bland steps to solve a problem when you can turn the issue into an engaging group discussion on the best path forward. Participating in discussions like this can help employees feel like their contributions matter to you and your organization, motivating them to work even harder moving forward. Dojo360 makes it easy to schedule live classes. Collaboration tools such as live chat, screen-sharing, and a live whiteboard help ensure the free exchange of ideas, and you may end up with a better solution than you would've come up with alone.

  3. Hands-On Training
  4. Your learners don't need to sit through a PowerPoint presentation on how to work effectively as a team; they need practical experience doing so. Dojo360 includes live breakout rooms that allow you to break a class into smaller groups to role-play sales calls or customer service interactions and share tips and tricks to help improve their performance. Instructors can pop in and out of each room to keep everyone on track, and then the class can be brought back together to discuss all of the techniques they covered. Dojo360 also records every live class, allowing asynchronous learners to access them remotely and equitably.

  5. Create a Mentorship Program
  6. Senior employees have accumulated tons of experience that could be beneficial to less experienced coworkers, so why not facilitate knowledge-sharing? Dojo360 is accessible on mobile devices, so colleagues can communicate while in the field or after tasks to discuss the challenges of the day. Team members couldn't do that in person unless they exchanged personal contact information, which many may hesitate to do. You can also invite experienced workers to assist in the course creation process. Dojo360 uses an intuitive step-by-step process in its course builder tool, so employees don't need technical expertise to share their knowledge with others.

  7. Skill Gap Identification
  8. Team settings can be chaotic and it isn't always easy to tell when learners are missing something. Dojo360 allows inline quizzes to be built directly into lessons to give instructors the real-time evidence they need to identify skill gaps. Instructors can review detailed results by question on an intuitive dashboard and enroll learners who missed a few in remediation. If the entire class struggled with a concept, the instructor can lead a group discussion. Instructors can then assign follow-up assessments to individuals, classes, or the entire organization to ensure that the issue has been addressed.
