It’s been said that the best training design in the world won’t stand up to a trainer with poor training skills. At the same time, we’ve all witnessed trainers who appear to be expert in the content AND who can present the material so participants get it; who have theoretical knowledge but know what it’s like to be in the trenches; who can control the training and the typical challenges yet seem human and approachable; who clearly have a mission yet can flex to meet the needs of the group.
Clearly these trainers have mastered the art of instruction. And you can learn the same techniques that make THEM effective!
As a result of participating in Delivering High Performance Training, you should be able to:
- Describe the role of the trainer.
- Describe and apply adult learning tenets.
- Present information in a logical, instructionally sound order.
- Increase the impact of your voice, non-verbals, and media in order to increase learning and retention.
- Apply proven facilitation and demonstration techniques.
- Manage challenging classroom situations.
- Describe evaluation methods for ensuring learning and improving your training.
- Improve interaction, energy, and enthusiasm in the classroom.
This is a very interactive workshop. Activities include: Trainer Competency Inventory assessment, About You exercise, a five-minute presentation from their existing training, Interactive lecture presenting five primary tenets of adult learning, Learning styles Inventory, a 10-minute presentation (with media and handouts) on a training method, interactive lecture/discussion to identify a general method for dealing with difficult students, final 15-minute presentation (all three presentations are videotaped for post-training review by the participant).
