Training senior managers

Training senior managers might seem to be easy as they possess hands on experience, it only a matter of mere facilitation on the part of the trainer. However, the reality is completely different.A trainer has to break many a ego and castles built on air by the senior management before imparting them training.This is what I had personally observed while training senior account and project managers in mid size IT companies.

Grooming Future Trainers

Grooming trainers for future is a challenging task.How can you know when does a trainee metamorphoses into a trainer?What are the indications of the same?Should he be upgraded as a trainer?How long should the handholding be done?A trainer should always try to mark those potential candidates who have the latent capabilities to upgrade as a trainer sometime in future and nurture them sequentially.There are amny other ways to do it.To know get in touch with me.

Measuring Training Takeaways

All training programs should have takeways for the trainees and importantly the trainees should be in a position to measure the same, and have the ability to apply the learnings in their professional life.If a trainer imparts training without any tangible and measurable takeaways, then inspite of he being an excellent trainer, he does not serve the purpose. How to measure...........takeaways, get in touch with me.

Developing a culture of training

Organizations today are trying their level best to ingrain a culture where their employees are involved in training at every point in time.This means on job training plays a more proactive role than a typical classroom set up, which would culminate in the employees/trainees continuously on the look out of new learning tools, methodologies etc. so as to upgrade their skill-sets and also to become more productive for the organization.

A Training based organization

There are organizations today which are training based ones, that is they are into the knowledge and might also involve in imparting training to the clients, more than that these organizations attract and retain people solely on the basis of their continuous learning nature.However, there has been shifts observed when it comes to retaining good people only on the basis of training as the absence of monetary and other non-monetary motivators, it really does not work.

Whom to elevate as a trainer

Organizations looks outwards for a trainer.I feel a good organization should always look inwards to get the right person elevated as a trainer.Should one go by experience should it be a deep analysis of all the traits required to be a successful trainer?The latter is advisable mainly because one need to have a flair for training and more than that one has to have behavioural and professional traits required to be a trainer. So look in and not out...........

Anyone can be a trainer?

No, as training like teaching is a profession which requires fashion and flair.While you can develop the flair, passion is something which comes from within and is natural. You might start off training as someone is offering you a hefty,but over a period of time you are bound to loose out on the motivation, which would reflect the absence of passion.First understand whether you are passionate or not and then kickstart.After all money is not everything, satisfaction is more important for a person to enjoy a profession.

Versatile Trainers

Modern day trainers has to be versatile. Apart from having all the required traits of a trainer, he should also have past experience in one or more functional areas (marketing/hr/finance/operations etc.), men management, resource management skills.He should be a good orator and should also have very good professional writing skills. A trainer should know the nuances of mentoring, counselling and guiding, which makes him a complete trainer.

Training related administration

Training related administration is equally important as that of the actual training.Training related administration acts as enablers in a training session. Arranging training kits comprising of black/white/green boards, flip charts, LCD, Making the training room conducive are very important.The trainer might not do it on his own, but has to have idea so that he can accordingly guide the people involved in the process to put the right ambience in place which makes the overall experience a good one.
