One of the most difficult challenges for virtual trainers and presenters is knowing when to stop lecturing.  When should they allow learners and participants to reflect and find reflection moments of the ideas? Lecturing means bombardment of too much content. Consequently, participants are zoning out, shopping at Amazon, tending to their pets, organizing their vacation, or doing other tasks. They keep missing the opportunities to learn and apply ideas. 

In this webinar, Ray will discuss how to get rid of the compulsive habit of just lecturing. He will share valuable insights into shifting some time to allow learners to think, apply ideas, ask questions, and learn from each other. You will also receive Ray’s “10 Tips to Break Compulsive Lecturing in Virtual Training.” Ray will also allow you access to 15 videos on “15 Methods for Allowing Virtual Learners to Think, Reflect, and Apply Ideas.” 

Topics to cover:

  • Where does the compulsion to lecture come from?
  • What are the cost impacts of bombarding virtual learners with content? 
  • How do you break down an idea so you start with interaction, conversation?
  • How do you convert your content into engagement questions? 
  • What are the 3 sample rules you must follow, if you really, really have to lecture? 
  • When can you justify lecturing?
  • How do you gain the personal courage to stop lecturing?
