Dynamic Training with your Team
For many years groups have been subjected to training formulas that follow a set agenda, whether it be a seminar or workshop, internal or externally facilitated, so ask yourself: of all the training programs you have attended, how many were really dynamic?
We are not talking, high energy, loud sounds, jump ups, running around: simply an engaging training agenda, where at 5pm you asked yourself where the day went! Count how many times you checked your watch…
In a training workshop, where you want the audience to be rich in understanding’s and learning’s, the simple solution is make the team training dynamic, from the room set up, presentation media and the presenter – all play a role in the experience.
Too many conferences and workshops, we see presenters talk about a PowerPoint subject, that simply could have been emailed to every delegate, 45 minutes to one hour referencing data and statistics on charts in a font too small for the naked eye to catch. How dynamic is this for the delegates?
How do you add the ingredient of dynamics to a training agenda? Could an agenda be stricter in its rules of adherence to all? Get delegates in teams, mixed throughout the day, break up the flow with icebreakers, have at least three 15 minutes brainstorm presentations in sessions – allowing participants to dynamically be part of the agenda. Guidelines to presenters on their use of PowerPoint – ‘If you can email your presentation to all – what are you adding value on?’ By eliminating the normality of comfort in presenters ‘hiding’ behind security in a presentation, you open up to creating a Dynamic forum.
A Dynamic Training forum, at a conference, retreat or workshop is also a very easy way to create team building. Engaging the group gets them talking, motivated, open to pass comment and really feeling different. Above all what we have witnessed is the interaction levels rise with individuals, through dynamic content, people feel comfortable to ‘share’ and also invited to participate.
So, think about the poor audience – engage with them and you are on the way to having a dynamic Training agenda, one that is memorable, builds a team, uses time efficiently, adds to the culture of a group – it’s a simple process that can be applied to any subject our conference.
