On March 23, in cooperation with Training Magazine Network, the Kirkpatricks presented their newest webinar, "Fatal Kirkpatrick® Model Execution Errors - Practical Tips for Identifying and Correcting Them."
Listen to this informative webinar with Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, creators of the New World Kirkpatrick Model, to find out the most common execution errors, what is at risk if you make them and how to avoid them in the first place. Pick up practical tips that any training professional can implement to maximize their program value and demonstrate it to their organizations and stakeholders.
Wendy Kirkpatrick is a bit of a daredevil. As a child, she would swing wildly on swings, climb trees and walk on top of the monkey bars. It was only fitting, then, that while we were on vacation, she found something to get the adrenaline pumping.
The resort we stayed at had a real circus high-flying trapeze that guests were allowed to swing on in the mornings. Wendy vacillated about participating in the circus act for the first couple of days but then finally decided to do it. I, however, volunteered to keep my feet firmly on the ground and videotape her performance.
The morning of the trapeze adventure, Wendy had one lesson on a low swing before it was time to do the real thing. In order to get to the trapeze, Wendy had to climb a tall, rickety ladder. The ladder climb was harrowing, but she made it to the top. Then, with the help of two trapeze experts, it was time to fly!

As many of you know, I'm always thinking about how real world things relate to training and training evaluation. Wendy and I recently took a trip to Turks and Caicos, and I found myself taking pictures of the beach that made me think about the Kirkpatrick Model and training.
