It is impossible to be part of an organization today and not attend meetings. Staff meetings, project meetings, planning and coordinating meetings'they all take time.
There has been a growing realization that we have to pay attention to the process elements of meetings, if we want them to be effective. With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal, the core competency everybody needs. Managers and supervisors are often asked to facilitate rather than instruct or manage their meetings and training sessions.
This workshop has been created to make core facilitation skills better understood and readily available for your organization. It represents materials and ideas that have been tested and refined over twenty years of active facilitation in all types of settings. This workshop will help you learn how to:
Few children decide they want to grow up to be trainers. Even fewer know what a trainer is. And most people who call themselves trainers today probably didn't start out to be trainers. Trainers evolve. They are usually recruits from other professions or positions, like teaching, writing, researching, or managing. One thing is clear: more and more people are becoming trainers, either by choice or because their other job demands it. Often they are thrust into a difficult situation without much understanding of what training is or how to do it well.
This workshop will help you learn how to:
Behind every spectacular training session is a lot of preparation and meticulous attention to detail. The truly skilled trainer can make a program exciting. The learners will have fun while they are learning if the facilitator is able to involve their emotions as well as their minds. You will see the involvement, and you will feel the energy.
To reach this stage as an adult educator isn't always easy, but success isn't just for the naturally gifted. It is possible for all of us who put effort into our personal growth and development, because we want the enormous satisfaction that comes from working with others to help them reach their potential as human beings. This workshop is your start to that goal.
This workshop requires that participants have a good understanding of basic training principles, including adult learning concepts, Kolb's learning cycle, training methods, and designing a learning sequence.
Objectives for this workshop include:
Most people have been at a party or some other social occasion where someone has told an inappropriate joke and ruined the mood (at least temporarily). Likewise, we've all been somewhere where the class clown is able to lighten the mood and help people have fun.
The good news is that humor can help make training sessions just as engaging as those fun social occasions. Even better, trainers don't need to be the class clown or an award winning comedian to do it.
This workshop will help participants identify what kind of humor they can bring to the classroom, and how games can help them engage their participants.
This workshop will also help you learn how to:
Few people choose training and development while they are still in school, and yet there are talented and knowledgeable trainers working in every industry. Some individuals become trainers because they are passionate about sharing their knowledge and about helping people. Others become trainers because their employer asks them to get involved in mentoring, training, or coaching new or existing employees. Trainers also get started when they want to make some changes to their daily activities, but wish to continue contributing to a particular organization or industry.
This course is for participants who are thinking about becoming a trainer, or have started doing some training already and want to know more about what will help them become an excellent trainer. This workshop is designed as an exploration of the essential skills that trainers need to develop, and to get participants started on the learning process in an interactive and fun environment.
This workshop will help you learn:
Training is an essential element of development in any organization. Being knowledgeable and continuing to learn throughout your career can make you a very valuable asset. We also know that training and orientation for newly hired employees is a key factor in retention.
This seminar is designed for a trainer who wants to develop training programs that are meaningful, practical, and will benefit both trainees and the organizations they work for.
