Action Plan - Man on Arrow Over Words

  1. Planning training is the thoughtful analysis of the purpose and desired outcomes of your presentation.
  2. Good trainers always remind learners to create action plans at the beginning of their training. As different ideas or chapters are covered, learners should good back to their action plan and write down at least one good idea to test once the training is over.
  3. If the training takes place over several days, form random teams to move learners out of their comfort zone and to shift the training from socializing back to learning.
  4. Class building is the process where a room of individuals with diverse backgrounds becomes a caring community of learners through activities which involve the complete group of learners.
  5. Team building creates enthusiasm, trust, and mutual support, leading to better academic work and job performance through fun, non-academic and easy activities.
  6. Brainstorming enables participants to free originate and build upon group-generated ideas leading to more creative thinking and learner interaction.
  7. Processing gives learners an opportunity to stop and think about what they’ve learned.
  8. Reviews are crucial giving learners a chance to solidify the understanding of new concepts and assess the effectiveness of the training.
  9. Energizers get learners out of their seats and moving around to get the blood flowing.
