TRIPLE III TIME: What Would Make YOU Better?

During the past year or so…in my role as a consultant and community college administrator…I have consistently asked “organizational customers”…what class or training opportunity would make you better?  And although I thought everyone would be able to quickly and easily consider my question and toss out a few learning examples…most times it just generated more questions.  Questions like:

  • Do you mean in my job or at home?
  • Do you mean a college class or just a workshop?
  • Would it be just one class/session or might it be one that meets many times?
  • Are you asking about one that would grade you too?
  • Can you define “better”?

Well as you can see my observational research told me that most were not sure how to exactly answer the question and/or what to designate as an area they need to improve in?!


What Would Make YOU Better?  The goal of this week’s TRIPLE III TIME message is to indirectly motivate you to think about how YOU would answer this question.  Did I believe it would really be easy…NO?!  But unfortunately it seems to be a question individuals do not often think about.  Plus because it is a combination professional/personal topic area…it often generates the need for deeper response considerations.

I can report that when individuals or groups sincerely address the What Would Make YOU Better? question, the results can be extremely progressive!  The “Better” answer sometimes is as simple as taking a personalized computer class…or as involved as a series of time management sessions for all in your organization.  However the best part of whatever actions are taken…is that professional ownership of the improvement is required!
