Training Facilitation Tools

Training facilitation is a complex task that requires preparation, planning, time management, and execution. It's the facilitator’s job to guide and manage a session to ensure that the group's objectives are met effectively, with clear thinking, good participation and full buy-in from everyone who is involved. This can be a challenging task. HRDQ can help with a wide range of facilitation tools that enhance and strengthen the trainer's role as a facilitator.

The Challenges of Facilitating Sessions

Every team is different. Because of this, a facilitator may not know what to expect when beginning a training session. It could go in many different ways as people begin to learn and share knowledge. There are many challenges to leading a training course, including:

  • People may be hesitant to change or grow
  • Some participants may consider training “boring”
  • Employees think they know it all already
  • People aren’t paying attention
  • Participants aren’t absorbing the materials fully
  • Arguments break out when working as a team

Overcoming These Challenges

A facilitator can overcome these challenges by being prepared, outlining why the training is important, and keeping it fun and exciting for the participants. If the team knows the benefits of doing the training, they are more likely to pay attention and absorb the information.

Facilitation tools like the products featured here can also help in a big way. A well-prepared trainer can make the different between a successful program outcome and a poor takeaway. Find all the tools you need to help make your next training session a success!
