Continuous Improvement (Cont’d)
Updated: Mar 19
Further to my previous post ‘Continuous Improvement‘, let me share some more thoughts on how to make our own training skills better continuously:
4. Share – One of the best ways to learn is to teach. I believe we as trainers know it well. And after all, we are in the business of making others succeed, aren’t we?
This can be in form of helping other trainers to design, or even writing a blog….. 5. Talk to trainers outside the organisation – I started making effort to meet up trainers in other companies around 2 years ago. There are so many brilliant techniques / best practices / wisdom out there.
In some senses, we could be victims of our own success – when you work in a company with a sizable training department, we try to look inward rather outward. 6. Be a learner – Don’t forget to look at things from the opposite perspective. I always find it amazing when I have chance to be a learner. Just settle myself into the U-shaped tables and following the trainer’s instructions or answering his / her questions. Take a mental record how I feel, and then imagine what if I were him / her…. It is very effective in helping me reflect.
I have 1 more point to share. But I like it a lot, I will write a separate post for it. I shall post it before the Chinese New Year!!
