One of the most important life lessons, both within and outside of the world of work, is to never stop learning. It is positively imperative that you avoid falling into a state of stagnation; learn something new each and every day. This will help you grow and evolve as a person.
Unfortunately, our increasingly busy lives are making it even more difficult to take traditional courses at traditional schools. We need programs that work around our schedules and not the other way around. That’s why the professional development offered by TrainingVOD is so valuable.
Each of the individual lessons afforded by this online repository are relatively short and you can watch the video on demand whenever you happen to find a few free moments. This is a good way to learn and to expand your business skills.
Learn on Your Own Time
To get a better sense of what you can expect from TrainingVOD, you can take a few moments of your time to watch the brief video tour. In a nutshell, this isn’t really an online course in the traditional sense, because the video lessons can be watched in just about any order.
Alongside the videos, which are typically about five to ten minutes in length (some are longer or shorter), you will also be provided with student materials. These lesson-specific documents give you the key points from the video, as well as a space for you to add your own notes. I recommend getting this document before watching the video so you can take notes as you go along.
What Lessons to Learn?
As you click on each of the individual videos, you will be treated to what almost looks like a one-on-one lesson. For instance, what you see here is the brief lesson on creating an effective elevator pitch.
The key takeaway lesson here is knowing that you have 120 seconds or less to “sell” what you have to offer. To develop the “QuickSell” pitch, you’ll want to tell the potential customer what they’ll get (need), what they should do (goal), what they’ll gain (benefit), and how you can do that (action), following up with an “if that’s OK” soft sell.
Lessons like this are easy to follow for novices and experts alike, while providing information that is applicable to people from all kinds of industries.
The videos are broken down into various sections in the topic library. These include administration, human resources, leadership, retail excellent, safety, and selling skills. Shown above are a few examples from the negotiation section.
While you can download the student materials at will, the videos are streamed over the Internet and, thus, cannot be directly downloaded for later viewing. That’s why TrainingVOD uses a subscription-based pricing model.
