Top 10 tips for Training, Facilitation & Presentation

  1. Prepare for training by identifying requirements of each participant and the group. Learn what they already know about the subject and what motivates them to train in it. Analysis of trainee needs helps in designing and delivering training that is customised to fulfil their learning needs.
  2. Trainers can introduce activities to bring more to their training sessions. Activities such as games, energisers, role-plays, simulations, icebreakers and case studies promote learning through discussions and exchange of ideas. It makes training more fun and gives participants more ways to learn.
  3. Use of humour in training cannot be underestimated. It helps trainees to relax and connect with the trainer, and makes learning less burdensome. When creating humour for a training session, consider these points:
    1. Make it original, clean and funny.
    2. Relate it to the training session.
    3. Rehearse the jokes to deliver them perfectly.
  4. Measure results of training. Find out how much the trainees have learned in a training session by holding quizzes, questionnaires and tests. Demonstrations and simulations are other ways to see exactly how an employee will act in a real-life work situation. Self-evaluations can also be used to measure results of training.
  5. FISH! practices help to build better cooperation, boost satisfaction and improve productivity. FISH! uses a set of these four practices:
    1. Be There
    2. Play
    3. Make Their Day
    4. Choose Your Attitude
    By altering the way, a person serves others, works and thinks, changes in their behaviour, productivity and level of satisfaction are achieved. FISH! can be adopted by a trainer or taught to the trainees for their own use.
  6. For a facilitation session to be successful, a facilitator should have these skills in facilitation:
    1. Knowledge of individual and group dynamics.
    2. Communication skills.
    3. Ability to plan correctly.
    4. Problem solving on the fly.
    5. Rapport building.
    6. Capability to organise and guide groups.
  7. Facilitators can encourage participation among groups by:
    1. Encouraging openness and transparency.
    2. Acknowledging and appreciating responses.
    3. Building on responses.
    4. Asking for more ideas.
    5. Building enthusiasm and interest.
    6. Using humour to entertain and relax participants.
    7. Creating a semi-informal environment for greater sharing.
  8. To give outstanding presentations:
    1. Know your audience.
    2. Adopt a positive and open body language.
    3. Use visualisations for clarity and variety.
    4. Create flipcharts.
    5. Choose an appropriate delivery method (lecture, demonstration, visual presentation, brainstorming).
    6. Use the right voice (tone, pitch, speed).
    If the presentation is interactive, practice using open questions to encourage discussion and responses.
  9. When speaking in public:
    1. Create an audience profile.
    2. Develop a basic outline of your speech.
    3. Practice positive body language.
    4. Overcome nerves by practicing visualisation.
    5. Prepare for adjustments on the fly.
    6. Practice answering difficult/complex questions.
    7. Maintain positivity throughout the presentation.
