Challenges in the Kronos Classroom - The Quiet Participant

Dwain Lambrigger — Sep 2010

I started training on Kronos products back in 1999. At that time, it was common to see companies moving from paper timecards to Kronos Workforce Central, or its single system cousin, Timekeeper Central. I remember those times well because of the type or learner I was training. A lot of these learners were petrified of technology. You have heard the stories before, the lady that thinks the mouse goes on the floor like the foot pedal to her sewing machine; the frustrated participant that asks the question "So where is the ANY key?" There are other great stories we can all tell, so feel free to share with me at dlambrigger@improvizations.com if you have any really good ones! I love to hear them.

Let me know how it works for you. It's pretty large so it might take a few to load. Alternatively you can view it right on the site.

Challenges in the Kronos Classroom - Respect

Dwain Lambrigger — Aug 2010

If you were to ask most trainers, I bet the vast majority would tell you they were very happy with their chosen line of work. Why? The opportunity to teach adults. As any grade school or high school teacher will tell you, teaching children provides it's own set of challenges. You are also working in a professional environment, where you are a respected part of the team with a unique set of skills that can benefit the organization. The classes taught are usually filled with participants who are looking forward to attending your class so they can further their careers.
