Instructional Uses

Although the title of the mini-guide suggests this is for small business owners, in fact, it's really for anybody who teaches or trains, or really, helps someone else learn, but isn't trained in Psychology or Training.

It's oriented towards training SKILLS, and that's something that is important for anybody to know. Consider including it in courses on small business, for example, or seminars for managers and supervisors who spend time orienting and building the skills of their employees.

Training Basics For Non Trainers

It's often the case that small business owners, or for that matter, managers and supervisors have to train and teach staff, whether it is when new employees are hired, or to keep staff up to speed on new changes. Most managers, and business owners aren't expert in training, so we created this short, powerful mini-guide to help.

It's like a "Do It Yourself" guide to getting staff ready to be productive quickly. The simple steps outlined here will help you do that whether you have to teach a receptionist procedures for answering the phone, or deliver on-the-job training for more sophisticated tasks.

Basic Training Methods Explained

We've taken tried and true training methods and translated them into plain English so everyone can understand them. We've broken the training process into seven simple steps, based on what is called the part-whole-part training method, and incorporated one of the most powerful training methods; modeling.

What's In It: Written by training expert and instructional designer, Robert Bacal, these step-by-step instructions provide a road map for improving the skills of your employees -- the skills you need your employees to have so they can contribute to your business success. Here's what's included::

  • Determining what your employees need to know
  • Preparing to train -- Breaking down the job tasks
  • Assessing where the "employee is at" now
  • Explaining the context and reasoning behind how things need to be done
  • Demonstrating, part-whole-part training, and providing feedback
  • Following up on the job
  • Additional training hints, tips and principles

Usage: Ideal for all small business owners who recognize the importance of training staff in-house, and want to learn to train faster and more effectively. Also an ideal handout for train-the-trainers courses, and small business seminars attended by small business owners. We provide bulk discounts to those who would like to use this helpcard as a value added bonus item in their seminars. We offer large discounts for bulk purchases/licencing.

This is a "must have" for anyone who helps employees get up to speed by teaching them procedures, or "how we want things done".
