Train the Trainer: Building Effective Facilitation Skills

Train the Trainer: Building Effective Facilitation Skills

Our goal is to help participants develop first rate training skills and to deliver effective learning that is effective in the short and long term.
We can customize the content to include training in a virtual environment.

At the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Describe key principles in adult learning and retention, and remembering the needs of the participant.
  • Identify the elements of effective preparation, including establishing behavioral norms.
  • Describe key elements of an effective presentation and non-effective presentations (including virtual learning).
  • Demonstrate setting a positive example from the start: best engaging opening lines.
  • Demonstrate the tools of a facilitator (body language, active listening, paraphrasing, eye contact, paying attention to verbal’s, pacing).
  • Explain the place for interactive activities to boost learning and DO’s and DON’Ts.
  • Explain using ‘energizers’ like riddles, short videos, ice breakers, etc.
  • Identify strategies in resolving common problem situations (including the disruptive questioner, the know-it-all, the negative personality, the jokester, and conflictual situations).
  • Demonstrate the power of the open ended question and getting them to respond.
  • Describe how to best answer a variety of questions.
  • Establish a partnership to help you improve.
  • Successfully create a Personal Action Plan.
We also offer the option of having participants create and present a short company-specific session that can be videotaped for effective evaluation.

Content can be customized to your specific learning objectives and business needs.
