Facilitation Training for New and “Accidental” Trainers

Fundamental skills for facilitating adult learning

Throughout the class, participants apply the principles of The Orderly Conversation to their own real-life training content.

Participants in this training for trainers program learn to

  • Engage learners in a productive conversation and create the conditions for fruitful learning
  • Frame the training with clear expectations and learning objectives so that learners understand why they should participate and how it applies to the work they do
  • Deliver visual aids effectively (even content prepared by others)
  • Be concise
  • Listen effectively to connect dots and identify common themes
  • Take advantage of the power of story
  • Encourage and control discussions
  • Work with co-trainers
  • Manage difficult people and situations
  • Set up and debrief learning activities
  • Provide productive learner feedback using the Turpin Communication SORT Coaching Model (Self-assessment, Observation, Recommendation, Tied back to goal)

Additional Post-Workshop Skill-Reinforcement Options

In addition to the skill-reinforcement resources included in eCoach, consider these options:

Training for Virtual Meetings: The skills required to lead a virtual meeting are an extension of the skills required in face-to-face situations. If your team meets virtually, consider adding a virtual post-workshop session to help them be more successful in the online environment.

Dress Rehearsal Coaching: To help workshop participants succeed, especially when the stakes are high, consider adding post-workshop coaching. This hour-long one-on-one follow-up takes place virtually and may be conducted any time after the workshop. Individuals always work with one of the instructors from their workshop to ensure continuity and mutual trust.

Communication Training Yields Business Results

We believe that business communication training must focus on business results: making work easier, employees more successful, workplaces more cooperative, and goals more attainable.

Getting Business Done and Growing Leadership Capability: Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases and careers advance. This brings positive results to your team and company.

Private Coaching and Video Review: Capturing learners on video as they work on their real-life content, which is followed by private video playback and coaching, is an essential element to this training. It helps workshop participants understand their natural strengths (and weaknesses). As they grow their self-awareness, they can apply what they learn in class to the variety of situations they face outside of it.

Workshop Tailoring

During the tailoring process, Turpin modifies the workshop to meet the specific needs of the business and each individual attending the training.

Blended Learning

We believe in a blended learning approach. eCoach is how we do it.
