Every day, Thiagi tweets ready-to-use pieces of practical advice on different topics such as facilitation, listening skills, communication, leadership, productivity, training, and management.
Here’s a list of items about training techniques that were frequently retweeted:
- You are not a lecturer who covers the content. You are a facilitator who helps the participants discover the content.
- Training is not a one-shot activity. The pre-work before and the follow-up after are as important as the actual session.
- Present training content before an activity as briefing, during an activity as coaching, and after an activity as debriefing.
- Plan your training session with your left brain and implement with your right brain. Be organized—-and flexible.
- Briefly introduce yourself at the beginning of the training session. Keep this really brief. Let your action speak for you.
- Distribute your eye contact, smiles, and questions to everyone in the room. Be an equal-opportunity trainer.
- Present your training objectives in plain language. Don’t clutter them up with unnecessary details that confuse the participants.
