- Greg Owen-Boger Training
In this video, produced by the Association for Talent Development (ATD), Greg Owen-Boger, Turpin’s VP, discusses respecting your learners’ time.
Greg here with Turpin Communication. In my experience coaching trainers, one of the things I recognize is that they often lose credibility because they waste learners’ time in the classroom. They use ineffective icebreakers or unnecessary icebreakers. They might teach content that the learners already know, come back late after breaks, and so on. You get the idea. We must respect the fact that adult learners are busy people at work. That means we need to respect their time. Be efficient in the classroom without rushing so that we can get them back to work.
