A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.
You’ve taken the courses, you are certified as a trainer but your students are not looking to be taught by someone just going through the motions. It takes more to go from being a good trainer to being a great one.
- Be Prepared and Organized – Know your stuff backwards and forwards. You need to be the authority on the material you are teaching. This will give your trainees confidence in what you are presenting.
- Communicate and Listen – A great trainer can really connect with their students. Engage, ask questions and start conversations. Don’t just lecture.
- Be Interested in Learning – A passion for learning is contagious. Keep on top of industry trends and constantly further your own education in your field.
- Patience – People learn at different rates and in different ways. Take the time to ensure everyone understands the material and has a strong grasp on what they came to learn at the end of the session.
- Be Challenging – Encourage your students to go beyond what is in front of them and to reach for more.
- Be Entertaining – A great presentation will keep students interested in the material and a sense of humour in your delivery will keep them engaged.
- Be Approachable – A welcoming and friendly attitude will encourage more participation. Trainees should never feel intimidated to ask what they might think is a “stupid” question.
- Understand Your Audience – Know that the same presentation or style of teaching won’t work with every audience. Know who your audience is and tailor your training accordingly.
