Achieve Success through Proper Business Training
How can you assure that your business is successful and will be able to maintain so? By having the right people, of course!
To have the right people, you need to train them on matters that are relevant to your business—systems, software, strategy, and the like. To make sure your training goes well, Velpic shares a few things to guide you.
Identify Your Training Needs
Does your staff need to learn new software? Does your business have a new marketing strategy? When identifying the training needs of your company, consider the objective, the competencies your trainees already have and what they like, as well as your resources.
Make a Plan
Even if you hire the best trainers and have the best resources, any training will likely fail if it hasn’t been properly planned. Plan early! List down the points that you need to cover in the training and allot enough time to discuss each point.
Have Interactive Discussions
No one wants to sit through hours and hours of listening to lectures. Create variety by having activities that will induce interaction among trainees. Encourage them to ask questions not just to the lecturer, but among themselves, too.
Variety and Repetition
Use various methods to deliver information. Have them watch videos, listen to recordings, observe actual work—this will help them retain the information. A great way to encourage variety is through the use of e-learning resources as these use various media forms like text, images, and sound to provide information. Dynamic learning using all senses enhances they way memory retains new information.
Feedback and Post-Training Supplement
Use feedback to reinforce learning and gauge the effectiveness of your training. After every discussion or activity, make sure you ask them questions about what they have learned. You can even give short quizzes to check how much they have learned.
