So what makes a master trainer? Are they better presenters? Do they use PowerPoint slides or flipcharts in some magical way? Or is it how they prepare their sessions? Simply, a master trainer is someone who intuitively practices a learner-centric approach to training.
Yes, master trainers are great presenters, but they don’t focus their skills on presenting. They use them to lead discussions and ask questions that encourage participants to think deeply and connect with the learning subject.
Master trainers are adept at developing rapport with participants and have the ability to help participants develop rapport with one another as well, to create a collaborative session of learning. And rather than just deliver knowledge content, they help participants to draw on existing experiences to build new knowledge that they can utilize straight away.
Most trainers discuss about what they’ll cover in a session. Master trainers discuss the skills the participants will master during the class and link those new skills to the participants job role. In some ways the difference a master trainer brings is subtle. But in many ways that difference is career changing.
Master trainers don't merely adapt a set of training techniques or content. They focus on trusting their participants to learn. This is about asking great questions and listening to the participants answers, instead of just delivering content and revealing the answers on a slide. It's about creating opportunities for participants to draw on their own experiences, rather than sharing only those of the trainer, and it's about using questions to help participants build good practices as they learn new skills.
Being a Master Trainer is about creating an environment where participants are comfortable and safe during the learning experience.
