Webinar Recording Details


The main skill of trainers and designers is to impart knowledge. But reflect upon this:
Do you simply explain content and bore learners to death or do you generate enthusiasm and engagement with a story? How do you distinguish what your true style is?
It is difficult to assess one’s self and find the right balance. It is even more difficult to shift skills and approach to become an effective storyteller.
Explainers tend to impact information while storytellers are equipped to help learners experience the information.

In this webinar, you will review and assess yourself using the "Trainer / Designer Style Self-Awareness Survey." You will gain insights on how to transition your skills from being a boring explainer to a high-impact storyteller..
Topics to cover:
  • Recognizing the art of story design and storytelling and its growing popularity in social learning, micro-learning, face-to-face presentation, in writing and multimedia
  • The assessment value of the "Trainer/Designer Style Self-Awareness Survey"
  • What to do to improve yourself
  • Finding opportunities to impact learning by being a story designer

Attend the webinar and undertake the "Trainer/Designer Style Self-Awareness Survey."
