Want to drive home a point when you are training?
One method is to Anchor the point using an ACTIVITY...
see pic below!
If THEY DO it, they are more likely to believe it, 
than if you simply tell them the point!

Part 2 cont'd from last month: more tips for Awesome Training!
As a seasoned educator, instructor amd trainer, I strongly suggest that you adopt a mindset that encompasses the following, especially when it comes to adult teaching. 
                    Mindset precedes teaching others a new skill set!
·         believe that “the answer is in the room.” Your task is not to tell them, but to guide and facilitate discussions respecting the diverse academic backgrounds and experiential knowledge of the attendees.
·         make the complex simple
·         understand attendees have a variety of learning styles
·         give clear directions
·         don't say things that lose credibility with your attendees
·         know that nothing is left to chance, everything is planned
·         don't give an oral bio of credentials; credentials are clearly demonstrated by         what you say and do

                               4 "C's"  to enhance your training sessions
1. Be CLEAR in your intended outcome
Focus on your purpose: what you want your attendees to take away and act upon. If you give your conclusion first, they know right away what the most important take away message is and that the rest of the presentation is built on that main premise.  

2. COMMUNICATE your main complex points or concepts simply
Avoid speaking using abstractions. Communicate to them in a way that is easily understood by sharing personal experiences and flesh and blood examples. Provide opportunities for stimulation, human engagement and emotional connection AND possibly activity  (if they do it, they will likely remember, since an actvity can serve as an anchor for your point)

3.  CHECK IN with the group periodically
Use the art of questioning  either rhetorical, giving them a valid reason to reflect, or open-ended ones that allows them to openly answer. It keeps them mentally and emotionally engaged and creates a 'conversation' between you and your audience.

4.  CONNECT the dots for your listeners
 Check for comprehension before moving on to next point in order to ensure they are still with you and will keep them with you. Effective transitions remind them where they were in the previous point and where you are moving to next by stating either what they want to avoid and its negative consequencs or what they want to attain and its benefits.
Until next month, successful seminars to you!  Stay tuned for final training pointers!  Wink
