"I learned more about education here than I learned in 3 years at the School of Education at the University I attended. Your techniques and your instruction have been paradigm shifting (if you’ll excuse the buzz words) and totally mind blowing. I feel like I am absorbing knowledge just by being in the room."
- Dave Palay- Corporate Trainer
"I just wanted to tell you that I used a lot of the stuff we talked about in Maverick last Friday—and my class this week LOVED me! And triaging the questions the way we practiced (I had a “4:30 Club”) worked like a charm! Thank you!"
- Steph Jenkins - Software Trainer
“Aside from the concepts, one of the biggest things that I value from the class was the time and effort we put into body and voice control. Being more aware of my posture and tone of voice makes me a much more comfortable and confident trainer. I get to be less tense and enjoy delivering the material, and at the same time I become more credible of a source in the eyes of the trainees.”
- Mark Phelan- Corporate Software Trainer
A welcome and introduction to the World Class Train the Trainer Program. Here, you'll get a chance to see the beginning of a training class modeled exactly how we suggest you do it.
The very first secret is Trust: the trainees need to trust you. They need to trust in your skills, they need to like you and they need to believe that they got the best...the Maverick. If you want to build trust, here's how to do it.
It's OK to be nervous. In fact, many times, it will help you become sharper. The idea is to not APPEAR nervous in front of your trainees. Here's how to do it, regardless of your personality style and whether you're a naturally confident person or not.
"That person gets me - They listen to me and really understand me." Ever heard this before? People like others that listen, understand and appreciate them. This is never more true than in a learning environment. Learn how to get to know your trainees as the individuals that they are.
If the trainees are comfortable, you'll be more comfortable. Learn how to close that window on day 1 early on so that the trainees can be more comfortable, thereby making you feel more comfortable so that you can help trainees continue to feel more comfortable.
You've got to make them think you are the best. Introduce yourself in a way that they think that you are, lights out, the best trainer or teacher they could possibly have standing in front of them.
Once you lose control, you can't get it back, BUT you can always loosen up the reigns. What's more, if you set these up front, you won't lose credibility or rapport if you take a "withdrawl" later on. In fact, you may well gain it because they can see that you follow through on your promises.
Now that you've got them in the palm of your hand, you need to keep them there for the remainder of the class. Here's how to do it...
Use six powerful questioning techniques to get and keep attention in any situation.
Twelve advanced training techniques to maintain the attention of any audience.
Don't just engage your trainees and make things easy to follow along...take it to the final stage and make things easy to understand...even the most challenging concepts.
The most important question I can ask a trainer/teacher after they are done training is this: "Did they get it? How do you know?" This lesson shows you how to find out every time for every student who does and does not "get it".
Answering questions isn't about whether you know the answer or not. It's about whether the question is in-scope or not. Learn how to confidently answer questions and meet the needs of your trainees while always keeping your credibility intact.
