Managing Trainers Dilemma
Trainers are always in a dilemma when it comes to using different tools, techniques and methodologies for training the trainee. The training effectiveness being the bottomline, it is imperative for the trainer to understand the importance of choosing the right tools, techniques and methodologies to impart training.Training need analysis may provide the trainer with important insight so as to understand the actual need of training,however, something like Crik-Patrik model can go a long way in evaluating the effectiveness of the training, both in the short as well as long run.A trainer has to have the ability to experiment continuously so that he can devise new training methodologies, apart from what is being adopted by trainers globally. The trainer has to understand the importance of innovation so that he knows what is good for his trainee, in different setting and situations. Mixing adequate proportions of hard skills, soft skills with interactivities goes a long way in making a lasting impact on the trainees performance.
