Key Chapters

  1. Create Nurturing Learning Environments

    Six main components make up the environment, and learning and development professionals should keep these in mind when planning a training experience.

  2. The 5 Most Effective Skills Trainers Need to Have

    Whether you’re recent to the training business or consider yourself a seasoned veteran, it’s incumbent upon you to hone your training skills, not just for your professional capacity but also to exceed your audience’s expectations.

  3. Tips for Dealing With Challenging Participants

    Most training sessions will have at least one person who is “not with the program.” By anticipating possible disruptions, you can plan for effective action to handle any issues.

  4. How to Keep Your Training Programs Funded

    Learning professionals and managers have always been tasked with building the talent required to meet public demand for better and more services. Now they are asked to do it with less money and fewer resources, and that likely will not change anytime soon.

  5. How to Enhance Your Skills

    Take the quiz or connect with a professional development specialist to determine the next step in your professional development journey.

The learner’s experience is pivotal to whether or not the learning will stick. Their experience doesn’t start when they enter the classroom, it starts when they sign up for the course. Are you doing everything you can to make that process painless and exciting?

High tension tasks and deadlines are part of most online learners everyday schedule. This is something you have to keep in mind when you’re creating the learning environment to give them the skills your organization has called as necessary. From this aspect, you have to value insight on what skills a trainer needs to have, how to deal with challenging participants, keep your program funded, and enhance your own skills. It is not a simple thing to do, keeping everyone involved satisfied. This is why a guide for trainers always comes handy.
