Developing a Training Needs Analysis

The right training at the right time can make a huge difference in the productivity and profitability of your organisation.  Whether you are scanning your workplace for opportunities to make things better and training is the answer, or a client asks you to come into the organisation and do an assessment, your answer is best framed in the form of a training needs analysis.

Trainers provide a learning experience in which people grow and develop. They are fundamental to developing and retaining the skilled workforce that is vital to any business.

Good trainers create a stimulating and involving environment. They enable people to acquire and store enough of the right knowledge to enhance their work related and personal abilities.

Measuring Training Results

There are lots of good reasons to offer training, and even more reasons to participate and take training.  There is also an accountability element, where we ask ourselves:  What was the value of that training?  Did we meet the objectives that were set out?  Did the training bring about some kind of lasting change in behavior?

Trainers and facilitators do more than just impart information. They must possess the personal and practical skills required to motivate adults, and to help them learn.

Successful training programs are meaningful, practical, and beneficial to both trainees and the organizations they work for. This course will give you a step-by-step guide for developing a great training program.

With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal. This course will introduce you to this core competency and give you practical ways to apply it in the workplace.

Training with Visual Storytelling

Training is constantly evolving, just as the needs and desires of learners are constantly changing.  This course is for trainers who are ready to make their training stronger, more memorable, and more engaging for learners by using visual storytelling and graphical techniques to create better learning experiences that lead to better retention.

We have all participated in training courses or workshops. Some of these have been helpful and useful in our everyday lives and others have seemed redundant and a waste of time. How often have we cheered or grumbled at being asked to participate in a training day? The good news is that all training can be useful and applicable if the trainer keeps some simple tips in mind when developing and applying training. We all learn differently, but there are some truths about learning that can be applicable to most groups and can be tweaked to fit any training session. This course will help you identify ways to make your training stickier for your students.

Humor can help you make your training sessions just as engaging as fun social occasions. Even better, you don’t need to be the class clown or an award-winning comedian to do it. This course will give you some easy ways to use activates and humor to make your training experiences fun and engaging.
