Prositions, Inc., the creator of DashTrain, is announcing the release of a new micro-learning program based on the best-selling book by Marnie E. Green, titled Painless Performance Conversations. The new blended training program includes eLearning, classroom, and performance support formats along with a suite of customizable resources to help administrators and trainers facilitate a tailored learning experience for supervisors who want to improve employee and team performance.

“Our research shows that the fear of confronting employees to conduct these critical performance conversations is the number one reason many organizations never reach their full potential,” shared Frank Russell, CEO at Prositions. “We’ve received feedback from many of our clients that the flexible delivery methods for our micro-learning products allow them to create a customized and adaptive learning experience from start to finish. Marnie Green’s practical advice, coupled with our unique instructional design and delivery, provide a powerful solution that will motivate leaders – at all levels – to take positive action.”

Painless Performance Conversations was designed for use with executives, managers, supervisors, and team leads to teach the skills needed to conduct performance-related conversations with confidence and poise. The program features Marnie Green’s four critical mind-sets to help supervisors prepare for painless performance conversations. It also presents a number of effective behavior models with actionable and practical day-to-day advice.

“I’m thrilled that my book has been adapted for micro-learning,” stated Marnie E. Green, author of the Painless Book Series. “The micro-learning concept just makes sense, especially for busy leaders today. They need access to these quick principles and behavior models as they prepare to have difficult workplace conversations. Being able to watch and learn in under 7 minutes is an incredible way to enhance leadership effectiveness and team productivity.”

All the components needed to facilitate a blended training program are available with Painless Performance Conversations, including:

  • High-definition micro-video modules (each less than 7 minutes)
  • Classroom version in DVD and USB formats
  • eLearning (SCORM) version
  • Performance support format with video and downloadable audio
  • Customizable support materials, with facilitator notes, administrative guides, PowerPoint templates, and more
  • Development plans with experiential exercises, desk references, and reinforcement tools

“This program uses humor, relatable scenarios, and a personable approach to engage learners and increase knowledge retention,” explained Michelle Kite, Senior Instructional Designer at Prositions, Inc. “It follows the 70:20:10 model to ensure that learners develop the tools to incorporate it into their daily work through activities and reinforcement exercises. The supplemental materials coordinate with each micro-video module to create a cohesive, professional package for both classroom delivery and self-paced learning.”
