Have a Follow-Up Discussion
Training video production is a costly exercise, designed to deliver the training message in a memorable way that will make a positive difference to your organisation.
So what finer time to have a discussion than immediately after viewing the training video?
There’s a secret though, and it’s this:
It must be a genuine discussion.
A team leader standing up and re-iterating the learning points is not discussion. It’s simply another form of telling. And people don’t respond all that well to being told.
They respond to be being involved.
Promoting genuine discussion means having pre-prepared questions you can ask the audience to get them started. Each learning point will need at least two versions of each question, just in case the first question doesn’t produce a response.
To produce two versions of a questions, ask it from the emotional standpoint (how do you feel about …), and from the mental standpoint (what do you think of …)
Different types of people respond better depending on how the questions are asked.
You’ll need photographs to pass around as well, as some people are primarily visual learners.
You’ll also need Guidance Notes for Team Leaders, explaining how to promote a genuine discussion, and the importance of being able to do this successfully..
If you do all this, and you obtain involving discussions, then you really are on the road to success.
Top Tip: To validate the learning, arrange for a Follow-Up Discussion.
