The Engaging Trainer

Take a Facilitative Approach to Training

Take your training skills to the next level!

Great trainers do three things very well. They understand exactly what their clients need; they develop training designed to address that need; and they effectively deliver the training using approaches that motivate the audience to action. This course enables participants to revolutionize their training styles by examining their current approach through a brand new lens. Each participant will significantly improve their own ability to actively engage audiences. Bring a module from one of your courses so you can immediately apply The Engaging Trainer course strategies to your material and gain valuable feedback! Customized tools and structured practice sessions allow participants to improve presentations and deliver material using a format that achieves greater understanding and skill transfer. Participants will learn just what it takes to make their own courses practical, dynamic, and interactive!
