Becoming a More Effective Facilitator: Level Up Your Skills to Maximize Learning

Many organizations are tapping the skills of experienced employees to train their peers, but are they providing the skills necessary to make the learning “sticky?”

This session focuses NOT on presentation skills–being the speaker–but on facilitation skills–learner-focused training and interactive meetings.

Participants are empowered to relax into “the more we talk, the less they learn.” New and experienced trainers and meeting facilitators will value the many takeaways, including 20 pages of copyright-free activities that can be woven into any topic you facilitate. Walk away with numerous resources and websites loaded with great materials for anyone involved with professional development initiatives!

Participants will explore…

  • Turning boring “here, teach this” curriculum into something interactive and fun
  • Avoiding death by PowerPoint
  • A simple 9-step checklist for planning the learning experience
  • The appropriate role of fidgets, sticky notes, games and props in training
  • How to increase note-taking with dynamic “idea catchers”
  • Promoting engagement with simple activities that even introverts enjoy
  • Resources and websites loaded with great material for trainers and meeting facilitators
