3 Trainer’s Tips to Start the New Year

This wonderful little reminder came to me via a newsletter today from Guila Muir.

  1. Remember that the learning objectives (outcomes) are what you’re driving for.
  2. Strive for a 70/30 ratio: 70% learner “doing,” 30% trainer “doing.”
  3. Avoid fluff. Use only activities that help to achieve the learning outcomes.

So simple, yet it sums up what we need to strive for. All of the training I have been through over the past year to improve my own training skills has taught, and more importantly, followed the same principles.

I think I might print this out, frame, and hang in my office.
