Yes, I want to learn!
What makes you - the corporate trainer - stand-out from external trainers? Do you use the inside knowledge on your organisation, the managers and people. Do you really know your participants when you develop or deliver a training course?
First of all, you live the culture as do your colleagues every day, so you better use it! Culture has various features, the most important ones being:
- The way "we" deals with certain situations;
- Culture is al about believes, ideas, norms and (moral) values.
Have managers been involved from the beginning? have clear business objective been agreed between participant and his/her manager? Has support been discussed and agreed? How does the training fit in with the participants career progression. Many more questions to be asked.
If you get the picture clear what the real benefits are for the participants, from a management and career perspective.
You have the ability to research some of the backgrounds why students are coming to your session. What do they want to learn, how will they apply it in their daily job?
Even better: talk to the students and interview them on their expectations, objectives, reasons they come.
You will be surprised why some come, varying from excitement to learn something new, to the "my manager told me I have to go".
You can make learning easy, facilitate a break-through experience and create happiness.
Learning is fun!
