Tips for Making Training Engaging w/ Mike Allison

April 26, 2018

I talk with my co-host Mike Allison, who's also a world-class sales trainer, about tips for making training engaging. Mike's tips include:

  • It's the trainers job to engage his or her audience. Trainees are not obligated to be engaged.
  • Trainers have to be great facilitators by getting the participants to do the heavy lifting themselves.
  • Great facilitators get participants up out of their seats and doing things.
  • Avoid PowerPoint at all costs!
  • The physical space where the training takes place matters. Arrange chairs (no tables!) in a U-shape to facilitate engagement and interaction.
