Course description

The Facilitative Trainer

With today’s rapid pace of change and the need to disseminate information quickly, many organizations rely on internal staff, who have had little to no education on how to effectively train, to lead learning sessions on new products, processes or other critical information.However, many clients tell us that these training sessions often fail to achieve learning objectives because they don’t feel engaged, discussions go off-track, participants or the trainer dominate, etc.

As trainers and teachers, we know that the single most challenging thing to do is step off the podium and into the role of a facilitator of learning. We know real learning takes place when the trainer stops talking and invites learners to start talking and participate in the process. To do this, trainers need to practice the skills and processes of “facilitative training”.

This was an extremely informative training session, and I can't wait to put these practices in place.

It was great to witness your great facilitative skills in action. Your mastery of the content, and ability to pivot to “where we wanted to” go was impressive.


This was a really good course with lots of great examples and processes with awesome practice. Great manual.
