Train-the-Trainer Workshop Day

Description: "My boss just asked me to design and deliver a training program and I have never done this. What do I do??" 

If you have found yourself in this situation, this workshop is for you! The morning component of this full-day workshop will give you the basic tools to design a training session that is participant-centered and fills the performance gap. 

Once you have designed the training, you need to deliver it. The afternoon component will provide tools and tips to deliver an impactful session that will allow participants to put the information to use upon returning to their jobs, and address the business outcomes. 


  • Discuss the phases of a training cycle
  • Write effective learning objectives
  • Explain what is meant by adult learning theory
  • Design a participant-centered training experience
  • Discover six brain-based principles, and related delivery strategies, that create “sticky learning.”
  • Create a positive, active learning environment.
  • Structure training delivery to optimize the participants’ learning experience, including their attention, comprehension and retention.
  • Identify at least three actions you can take to increase the likelihood that participants will apply their learning.
  • Develop an Action and Implementation Plan to integrate your learning from Train the Trainer.

NOTE: This session is designed for the new trainer, a subject matter expert who is tasked with training, or as a refresher for those that want it.
