Not everyone is meant to be a trainer.
Often, the worst catastrophes in the workplace have occurred when an organization assumed that because someone knew a topic they could train others on it.
Training is a counterintuitive process, where those that may be slower with a task or struggle may be the most proficient at teaching someone else to perform the task.
The best classroom trainers are the ones who are willing to be quiet.
The best on the job trainers are likely not your fastest performers.
Training is a skill set, separate and apart from being “good” at a task. Just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you can train it.
In the past 18 months, those of us that have been traditional classroom trainers have pivoted to modalities of virtual, asynchronous and micro-learning. I have to say — I have definitely embraced the multiple modalities and possibilities.
