The Challenge

The Rapid Pace of Change Creates Urgent Training Challenges

Today’s business environment is defined by speed – markets shift rapidly, modern technologies emerge constantly, and strategies seem to change overnight. Employees need to continuously learn new skills, adapt to existing capabilities, and stay ahead of the curve.

As a trainer, this rapid pace of change creates urgent challenges:

  • Design and development time is severely limited. There is no time for lengthy course creation.
  • Training content goes outdated quickly. Static courses cannot keep pace with ever-shifting business priorities.
  • Learners need to acquire skills and knowledge “just in time.” “Bite-sized, scenario-based, learner-centric training is a must!
  • Engagement and retention are impaired by condensed timelines. Learners must grasp concepts quickly.
  • Training budgets are tight. Resources must be used efficiently.

Today’s trainers need an ever-expanding toolkit to rapidly design and deliver training that sticks despite these challenges. They need to tap into creative, accelerated techniques that provide engaging learning experiences on a limited timeline.

Our Solution

In this intensive 3-day workshop, you will learn techniques to rapidly design and deliver engaging, sticky learning experiences:

Craft stories to humanize concepts, enhance retention, and provide relevant context for applying new skills. Storytelling is a powerful training tool.

Enhance retention and comprehension by verbally “painting” vivid visuals that make abstract concepts concrete. Bring content to life through imagery and metaphor.

Apply accelerated learning techniques like active scenarios, simulations, and peer exchanges to immerse learners. Design training for maximum engagement and comprehension.

Fill the holes in knowledge and skills by analyzing performance gaps and targeting training to bridge them. Ensure training builds capabilities.

Curate curiosity with thought-provoking activities that drive learner participation. Spark their interest and motivation to learn.

Remove barriers to learning by considering cognitive load, delivery medium, and audience needs. Enable easy absorption of concepts.

Build a learning community with discussions, collaborative projects, and opportunities to share experiences. Deepen learning through peer interactions.

Create micro and mobile learning that provides just-in-time training accessible on any device.

Develop learning games like role plays, quizzes, and friendly competitions to energize learners.

Evaluate training at four levels using Kirkpatrick’s model for continuous improvement. Measure outcomes, application, behavior change, and ROI.

Over the 3 action-packed days, you will learn from expert trainers how to:

  • Craft compelling stories that increase retention and comprehension
  • Verbally “paint” vivid visuals that bring concepts to life
  • Apply accelerated learning techniques to instructional design and delivery
  • Stimulate curiosity and remove barriers to maximize learner engagement
  • Develop microlearning, mobile learning, and interactive games
  • Evaluate training using the Kirkpatrick model

You will come away with hands-on experience and be ready to immediately implement these practical techniques for crafting training that “sticks.”

This workshop is perfect for anyone looking to take their training skills to the next level. If you are hungry for new, creative approaches to meet the demands of today’s rapid business environment, secure your spot today!
