Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Dr. Carrie Graham the owner of Carrie O. Graham Learning & Solutions.

Dr. Carrie began her career in sports medicine by attending annual credentialing and continuing education units, which she thought were excellent at the time. However, as she advanced in the profession, she realised that much of the training was ineffective, and it only got worse over time. After that, she went into teaching and again came across too many teaching environments that failed to deliver what adult learners need.

Recognising that when it comes to teaching adults, the stakes are high, Dr. Carrie decided to use her knowledge to help companies and organisations developing and deliver successful training for adult learners. So she quit her teaching position and dove straight in.

Now, Dr. Carrie assists businesses in implementing adult learning best practices to increase learning outcomes. She has a reputation for listening to people's concerns, both stated and unstated, and asking the right questions to help them find clear and insightful answers. She tailors her services to meet the specific needs of each of her customers, both personally and professionally.

Don't miss this episode to discover Dr. Carrie’s advice on exactly how you can deliver exceptional learning experiences for your clients.

Regardless of what topic you are teaching, you should always start with foundational information. That’s how you build a learning experience.-Dr. Carrie Graham


In this value-packed episode you’ll learn:

  • How adults learn differently.
  • Why it's vital to create a positive learning environment.
  • The significance of understanding who your clients are as learners.
  • How to create an effective teaching approach that is tailored to the clients’ needs.
  • A strategy on how to present or teach a concept without feeling overwhelmed.
  • How to deliver exceptional courses and learning even as an introvert.

...and so much more!

Before you educate people on a topic, get clear about the outcome you want. What do you want people to know or be able to do? Then give them small pieces of that.-Dr. Carrie Graham
