About This Product
Instructor, trainer, and facilitator have the same
major goal: to transfer knowledge, skills, and/or new attitudes
to each participant in their session. This leaders' guide will teach
you the techniques for successful instruction and set you on the
path towards establishing your own “trainer identity.”
You will learn to identify the characteristics of the
learner/facilitator relationship, utilize methods to remove communication
barriers, apply skills to improve training, plan ways to involve
groups in the learning process and deal with the dynamics of a
group. Lastly, you will learn to define and use specific
methods for dealing with conflict and the change process.
Obtain the highest quality management skills quickly
and cost effectively. Every leaders' guide has been designed, developed,
and written with adult learning theory and information mapping
considerations. Engaging and lively content combines an optimal
mix of case studies, charts, tips, and guidelines. Also included
are our pre- and post-program assessments, which are highly effective
tools for guiding the learning process and providing critical
evaluation. Each content page has opposing pages for notes and each leaders' guide may also be used by a facilitator or as a self-study guide for self-paced learning.
