Do you remember your first instructional design project? Not the one you did in school, but the first REAL course you created for a client or first full time job? No doubt it included a decent amount of stress and anxiety. Those are feelings you’d likely rather forget, but the lessons you learned probably shaped the way you work even to this day.

On this weekly episode of IDIOODC, Chris Van Wingerden and Brent Schlenker talk with friend Mike Simmons, founder of Catalyst Sale, and host of the Catalyst Sale Podcast. He recently produced and launched his first training course and he’s agreed to share a few of his many lessons learned during the process. Most of us suffer from the “curse of knowledge” and have forgotten what it’s like to be a beginner.

Check out the fun conversation with Mike as we all take a step back and re-learn the importance of what we do as instructional designers.

Mike works in revenue operations, predictable growth through data and design. He is an advisor, consultant and practitioner as the founder of his company Catalyst Sale.

"Sales is a Thinking Process - Advisor, Leader, & Coach with experience growing sales and customer success teams from pre-revenue to 80MM ARR."
