A Practical, Fun Way to Becoming a First Class Training Professional!
Our Train-the-Trainer Philosophy:
Our train-the-trainer workshop is founded on the philosophy that adults learn best by first seeing and then practicing new behaviors and skills. Therefore, we use a highly interactive approach to developing effective trainer skills. The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to not only observe effective instructor skills and techniques as a student, but also provides ample opportunity to practice those skills and techniques as an instructor. Individualized feedback regarding strengths and opportunities to grow is critical, and is an integral part of the workshop. One of the most powerful feedback tools—videotape—is used to support the feedback element of the workshop. Throughout the workshop, the instructors continually model the skills and behaviors of effective trainers.
