Ever wonder who trains the staff that trains you on Rent ManagerÂ®? Or maybe, whoâ€™s the face behind many weekly webinar trainings? Instructional Resource Designer Sabrina Peabody is responsible for these tasks, amongst many more.
Sabrina joined the LCS team in 2012, and is part of the Instructional Resources Group.
We do a lot of fun stuff. Itâ€™s everything you can possibly think of when it comes to resources. We do webinars, we do training, we also help with new hires, we write documentation, and we interact with lots of people in the company. Thatâ€™s one of the things I really like about working in my department.
And weâ€™re actually creating training, so weâ€™re writing it all out, developing it…. We talk about what we can do to make it easier for people to understand different concepts. And I really enjoy that, I like thinking about how I can create something that will be helpful to someone else, and helping them learn how to do something they didnâ€™t know how to do before.
Whatâ€™s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part is training. My degree is in training, from James Madison University, Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and Master in Teaching, and itâ€™s a part of who I am. My whole life, my whole family, everything has been focused on education, and constant learning in your life. And so this is perfect, because then I get to help others learn something they actually want to or need to knowâ€™ in this case, itâ€™s the software, and thatâ€™s pretty awesome.
What excites you?
I get really excited about thinking of what I can do to help other people. And since Iâ€™m in a job where weâ€™re training, itâ€™s how can I train the best? Itâ€™s also about if we have new hires that are coming into the company, how to get them acclimated, and how can we get them to understand this huge software, bit by bit, and be excited about it.
Why do you like working at LCS?
I really like the people I work with. They are super fun. They like to interact, and stay focused on a purpose. And so when we get working, itâ€™s just like this synergy that keeps going and we keep working, keep bringing up ideasâ€™ itâ€™s great to create things together. Sometimes itâ€™s hard for me to leave at the end of the day, just because you get on a roll, and are excited to think about how everything will fit together, and how it will look when you actually implement it.
The people here are awesome. I really connect with them. I love going to our User Conferences because you get the opportunity to connect with your coworkers in a unique way. Youâ€™re working as a team to help others on a large scale, I think thatâ€™s just something thatâ€™s really cool. I really like doing that. Thatâ€™s one of the things that makes me come alive.
We are happy to have Sabrina on our LCS team and look forward to her future success!
