Delivering a live training session or presentation may only be one responsibility among the many that you as a subject matter expert, manager, or trainer have in your organization. So when it is necessary to share you expertise and help develop the skills of others by conducting live training, are you using the “spray and pray technique” – spraying your participants with information and praying that it sticks?

What results are you getting from these training efforts? Are your participants truly learning, remembering, and implementing what you’re teaching them? Are they able to perform better back on the job after these sessions?

Without proper training, it's easy to copy the mistakes even smart presenters make that create disinterested, disengaged, and dissatisfied attendees – and prevent them from remembering and applying what you’re teaching them. These mistakes sabotage the time, effort, and cost that you put into your session plans.

By the end of this interactive session, you’ll be better able to:
  • avoid 3 common training mistakes that cause participants to become bored, unmotivated, and restless during training sessions and presentations
  • use strategies to avoid these costly training mistakes
  • plan techniques that increase trainee engagement and learning
  • increase the chances that participants can use what you’re teaching them back on the job
