Train the Trainer
Trainers are nowadays no longer considered as disseminators of information but are expected to be change agents and performance consultants. In order to support workers and organisations in improving both individual and team performance, trainers need to have the ability to design, develop and deliver training that inspires individuals to take charge of their own learning.
Training and developing others requires a working knowledge of how individuals learn, as well as the ability to inspire others to work towards their professional advancement. It is often the case that in a workplace context, individuals find themselves within a role whereby they need to train their peers and teams, however have never been really trained to do so.
