The challenges of training a difficult topic

At times you may be called on to train or present a difficult topic. I once had to plan to train large groups of people in a topic that wasn’t likely to be received well.

Here’s my tips for training a difficult topic:

  • Prepare well – get briefed on as many possible hurdles/issues and have answers ready
  • Keep mood light – intersperse sessions with activities which keep learners active
  • Establish your position – engage the learners in your sphere of influence
  • Deflect any personal attacks – move focus to the bigger picture

It might be a tough call but able to be done.

Of course, contact me if you need any training assistance.
