Here’s How To Become The Elite Trainer You Were Meant To Be…Maverick…
(The trainer EVERY Trainee Wants To Learn From)
Do you know why most trainers leave the profession?
Because they feel drained and don’t enjoy THEMSELVES.
Trainers that get their class to “fall in love” with them by the end of the first day will experience fewer discipline problems in their classroom.
The problem is that the #1 fear of any learner is looking foolish in front of others…
…and most trainers UNCONSCIOUSLY trigger this fear every day.
FACT: Businesses Need Rock Star Trainers
(…Who Actually Know What They’re Doing)
If you’re here, you already know that having elite, master trainers is an important aspect of any training strategy.
But, if you’re like most businesses, your trainers are not doing it as well as you they should be.
That’s because the top trainers that get “perfect evaluations” know secrets that other trainers don’t…
✓ Trainees will learn almost twice as much from a trainer they RESPECT and TRUST.
✓ One of the most powerful times to build a relationship with a trainee is actually before class even starts.
✓ The position of your hands, where you stand, who you look at, and what you look at can have a profound impact on how your trainees perceive you as an instructor.
✓ Many trainers show nervousness to their trainees, and don’t even know they’re doing it.
✓ The precise steps to gain trust in the classroom are very different depending on whether you have natural or “learned” confidence.
✓ When trainees feel the pace is too fast, they’re not really talking about how fast you are going.
✓ The impression of how good your class will be is made within the first 30 minutes of class, and YOUR individual impression is made within 10 minutes of meeting you.
✓ Trainees will enjoy themselves far more if YOU are enjoying YOURSELF.
✓ The more knowledgeable you become about the topics you teach, the harder it is to make them easy to understand.
✓ Trainees SUBCONSCIOUSLY interpret your facial expressions to determine whether they like you and your class.
✓ From the moment they first sit down, the #1 need of your learners is to feel safe in your classroom.
✓ The board is the most effective visual aid in the classroom to help trainees understand challenging concepts, even more so than power points or modern media.
✓ When a trainee asks you a question, it’s not whether you know the answer that determines whether you should answer the question.
✓ Women and men must use different vocal tone techniques to speak effectively and build credibility in their classroom.
✓ The “opener” you use to start each class and lesson can make or break the success of that class or the lesson itself.
✓ You can reduce the number of problems you have with pace, understanding, engagement, and people following along by as much as 50% simply by setting some defined boundaries before class even starts.
✓ Learning to harness YOUR unique training style is the most important way to ensure you MAINTAIN long-term success in the classroom.
✓ Teaching KEY lessons and concepts at particular times using the right method can greatly improve your evaluation scores.
✓ The first lesson of the day is the most important, and the success of that lesson will impact every lesson afterwards.
✓ You will have made a lasting impression of yourself and your skills as a trainer by the end of the first 90 minutes of class.
✓ Most trainers are unable to successfully determine whether their trainees “understand” and often don’t find out that they don’t until it’s too late.
✓ The number one reason trainers aren’t engaging is because they don’t ask the right TYPES of questions or use the best method to execute those questions.
✓ Your volume, pace, and vocal inflections are even more important than WHAT you say for getting and keeping attention.
The question I have for you is this…
Do you always provide an amazing classroom experience – the kind that captures your trainees and makes them want to come back for more… every single time?
I Thought I Knew Everything…
I have a feeling you were surprised by some of the things you read above…
…how do I know?
Because I’ve lived them…
…each and every one…thinking that I “had all the answers”…that there was nothing else I really needed…
BOY WAS I WRONG…
Have you ever thought you knew everything about something, only to discover the hard way that you didn’t?
This happened to me when I graduated from college with a teaching degree…
…I thought, “Now I’m ready for anything.”
I wasn’t…You can’t learn all of the skills you need in school…
…I tried…they simply don’t teach them.
Then I started reading book after book…trying to teach myself, by reading anything I could get my hands on…
I wanted to know WHAT the best trainers were doing that made them SO good…
I spent 20 years searching for these golden nuggets on how the most elite trainers did it.
What I found is that these techniques just aren’t taught in schools or written in any books.
The Most Amazing Trainers Have Master Skills…
(Training Techniques That Set Them Apart…)
I decided to go straight to the source…
…to watch and learn from as many world-class teachers, trainers and instructors as I could find.
While teaching high school for 7 years, I watched teacher after teacher.
While training trainers for another 10 years, I observed hundreds of trainers.
I discovered that the most amazing trainers were using a number of ADVANCED PRACTICAL techniques in their classrooms…
…techniques NOBODY TAUGHT THEM…
…techniques they had to figure out through YEARS of trial and error!
I sought all of them out, and tried them for myself.
After I perfected them, I started to teach them to other trainers and soon they were getting evaluations they never dreamed of!
