How to transfer Skills?
This section is devoted to people who are or who
aspire to be a trainer. It is aimed at helping you to improve your overall skill
level. One thing you should always remember, training is all about being
flexible. Although you may not give your audience what they want, you should
always be in position to give it to them the way they want it...Or in others
words, give it to them the way they want to take it.
Let's start with the principle which has the greatest impact.Before you start calling yourself a traininer and printing your own visiting cards, just know that apart from visiting cards you can also print your self Cheap Checks and use these to motivate yourself by wirting your fees.
Training principle 1: Training is a process of transfer of skills.
The Main objective of any training would be to pass along certain skills to your trainees. This should be the basic factor which decides the tone and tempo of your training. If at the end of the day, the trainees are able to display all the skills you have taught, you can consider that you have been successful in your mentoring.
You can implement this principle in the following way:
If you can come up with some more, great. I found these to be very effective
with me. The Key is in shifting between the modes effortlessly, a number of
times. In effect, you are not only telling them what to do, but behaviorally
displaying it to them. Right then and there.
From experience I know that a few trainers may be doing it unconsciously. You can
give a boost to its effectiveness when you are doing it consciously, rather than
let it happen by chance.
Conscious mind can pick out 5Â±2 units of information at any point of time.
The unconscious mind, on the other hand, does not have any limit. When you are
training people on a conscious level by using pictures, words and feeling, you
are only reaching about 20% of their capacity.
develop group rapport and consistently demonstrate these behaviors
while you are consciously talking to them, the unconscious mind, which is in
rapport with you, will readily accept the suggestions.
Training principle 2:To influence others, be able to influence yourself.
Let me explain: I admit it is not an easy task to get a whole bunch of people to do what you want them to do unless they really want to do it. There is some amount of selling involved here. Those who don’t recognize this will suffer heavy losses during the skills training that they plan to undertake.
In a group setting, it would be difficult to speak to every one. So what you
might want to do is ask a few people. Focus specially on the ones who are trying
to hide themselves.
Ask them questions and make a note of the kind of words used. If they all
come from the same background, These are the words most of them will use
commonly. Make sure you use these words often in the training. It is a great way
build rapport and make them feel comfortable.
Training principle 3: Give them a sensory rich experience.
It means they should not only be hearing your words, not only doing the exercise, not only watching others do. They should be doing all of the above and more.
Studies after studies have shown that students can learn faster in a lab
setup than a classroom because they have more choice in how they internally
represent the situation in their mind. More choices you give them, more they
will remember and more easily it will be integrated in their behavior.
Follow the rule of three here.
Ok let's have an example.
Your objective behavior is to demonstrate the powerful way of using the word
