Some people tend to think of training at times as dry, repetitive and unimaginative. While positive messages do need reinforcement, the well known culture of Southwest Airlines proves that one should not lose sight of enjoying their work.
In several of our blended learning training programs, we use You Tube shorts as reminders of what can be done with a fairly small budget.
The example below shows the Crowne Plaza Hotel at the airport in Providence RI sharing their appreciation of one of their biggest clients. While the video does not show “training” in it’s traditional classroom setting, the enthusiasm and shared values of the entire staff is displayed in ways by literally dozens of people in all departments.
Thank you for the influence, Southwest, and well done, RI Crowne Plaza!
