Welcome to my personal website, celinevalentine.com, your gateway to a world of insights and knowledge. Here, we explore a diverse range of topics, from successful onboarding strategies for Solution Engineers (SEs) to personal growth journeys and the art of enablement.
In this inaugural blog post, I invite you to join me on a journey into the world of building a rigorous 30-60-90 onboarding program for technical professionals , uniquely tailored to individual roles and learning styles. Our focus? Active learning that triumphs over passive methods. It's time to dive in and discover the keys to unlocking your full potential.
Assessing the Baseline Knowledge
Effective onboarding begins with a critical step – assessing the baseline knowledge of our talented recruits. It's essential to understand where they stand before guiding them on their journey. Here's how I do it: Tailored 30-60-90 Study Planners.
We have found that a tailored approach works wonders. We create personalized 30-60-90 study planners that serve as roadmaps for our new team members. These plans are designed to provide a clear path to mastery.
Embracing Active Learning
In the world of onboarding, we firmly believe that active learning is the secret sauce. We encourage our team to spend no more than 10% of their time on passive activities, such as watching tutorials, reading documentation, and internal training videos. The real magic happens during hands-on tutorials.
Seeking Additional Resources
But what if the provided documentation falls short? We explore external platforms like YouTube and Udemy to find supplementary hands-on resources. It's all about equipping our team with the tools they need to succeed.
The Systemic Learning System
Fancy enablement tools can be great, but they don't reach their full potential when loaded with unvetted materials and a one-size-fits-all approach. That's why we emphasize building a systemic learning system. This approach ensures that every individual's needs and learning styles are taken into account.
Join the Conversation
The journey to tailored, effective onboarding is an exciting one, and I invite you to join the conversation. Together, we can explore the art of creating impactful onboarding experiences for SEs and field specialists in small startups.
Stay tuned for more insights, strategies, and tips on my website. Let's empower your team with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive.
