As a team leader, conducting a productive training is challenging. Your training meeting must be informative, relevant, open for participation, fun, and motivating. Here are some suggestions for making your meetings more effective:
Treat all of your team members as knowledgeable.
Appreciate their experiences and their opinions.
Do not lecture.
How boring! Make the meeting a participatory experience for everyone. Ask questions and allow them to participate in the discussion.
Don’t just read what’s in the training manual.
Team members can read it themselves. Your job is to expand on the subject and provide clarity of the information as well as to explain how it applies in your company.
Be prepared for the training meeting.
You should know ten times more about the subject than your participants. Give yourself plenty of time to research and validate the information.
