Imagine (or maybe you don’t have to imagine) sitting through a training course where the trainer is just going through the motions… It’s not good for the trainer or their company and a poor experience for the paying delegates.
So here are the three tell-tale signs that a trainer is getting bored delivering a course.
- Talking about themselves
It’s important that a trainer develops credibility with their delegates, but that can be achieved in a few minutes. The trainer that is still talking about themselves 15 minutes later is a real cause for concern.
- Dress code starts to slip
You have a dress code for a reason, whatever it may be. If trainers are starting to “dress down” it’s another sign that they need a change.
- Trainer does not interact with delegates
This is the big one. The trainer finishes a session, the delegates wander off to get a coffee and the trainer is still sat at the front of the room ignoring everyone. If they are not willing to network and engage with delegates during the breaks it’s a sure-fire sign that their interest is waning and it’s time for a change.
