Even Trainers Need Training!

Get practical tips on:

* Assessing the attitudes of your participants* Remaining sensitive to the diversity of your audience* Selecting audio-visual aids* Closing your sessions creatively?and much more!

The demand for training often exceeds the available resources. That?s when organizations turn to their subject-matter experts. These employees often have no training experience, but they have valuable information to share with their coworkers. Usually, these subject-matter experts are given little or no formal instruction on how to train. It?s sink or swim. They struggle to convey their expertise, and their untutored training can fall on unwilling ears.

The Train-the-Trainer workshop is the helping hand that no new trainer can do without. The Instructor?s Guide gives you the tips, tools, checklists, and guidelines you need to conduct an effective, interactive train-the-trainer program.

You?ll teach new trainers how to:

Conduct a needs assessment

Develop their instructional plan

Use active training techniques

Evaluate their training?and much more!

Plus, this guide is packed with figures and exhibits you?ll use as overheads, flip charts, and handouts. And the Train-the-Trainer workshop is flexible: the modular design allows you to pick and choose the sections your participants need.

Trainer?s Handbook

The Trainer?s Handbook, the guide for workshop participants, is both a component of the workshop and a stand-alone resource. You?ll want a copy of the Handbook for every Train-the-Trainer workshop participant.

Remember?even trainers need training! Build a solid foundation for new trainers with this total-trainer

development workshop and resource guide.
