Refresh Your Training

Let’s face it, even the best trainers can get stuck in a rut sometimes. Delivering the same course day in and day out can be monotonous and lead to complacency.

What we need to remember is that we should always be providing our customers with the best value for money. To do this, as trainers, we sometimes need to go back to basics.

If you feel you’re in this position, then let me ask you a couple of questions. When was the last time you thought about learning styles? When did you last give much thought to your delivery technique?

Chances are it’s been a while since you pondered over either of these issues but the fact is, they are an integral part of successful training. 

Let’s take learning styles for a minute. Do your sessions cater for visual learners? What about auditory learners? What do you have in place for them? And then there’s kinaesthetic learners. Are you leaving all the kinaesthetic activities until the end, by which time, they may well have pulled their hair out?

If you feel you’re stuck in a training rut then my advice is to go back to basics. Even just spending an hour or so, looking at the basics of training can make a huge difference to your delivery.
