Train your trainers
Your people need to be able to achieve your organisation’s mission, vision and values – and to do that, you need great trainers.
‘You’re great at your job, so you’ll be great at training it!’
It’s a bit like saying ‘you’re a great football player – so you can drive the team bus to the next match!’
But do they understand how and why adults learn, current learning and development thinking, practical training, facilitation and presentation techniques that work?
Training’s a very particular set of knowledge, skills and mindsets – and these can be learned.
Train the Trainer 2-day personal development programme
This programme offers an introduction to essential training skills.
Delegates explore key training topics, with practical elements and individual feedback throughout.
Note – this programme is also available as a three day programme which explores the core topics in more detail and depth. Contact me for further information.
