Purpose: There are a variety of reasons to provide training. Skill gaps, succession planning, technical capabilities, job knowledge, untapped talent, and compliance are a variety of reasons to invest in training your workforce. Others are more obvious and include reasons such as increasing productivity, reducing turnover, decreasing supervision, increasing safety, and maintaining credentials and certifications.
Whatever the reason, the critical link in an effective training process is the trainer themselves. The person becoming a trainer needs to master a balance of knowledge, skills and certain attributes that support an effective learning environment. To eventually transition from being a good trainer to a great one imparting impact and lasting results in the workplace requires an open mind and an on-going willingness to learn – about oneself, one’s knowledge base, use of technology, psychology and challenge to expect and support change in the learners.
