In a training environment, you have a choice to make between two significantly different modes of operation...
1. You are more interested in the audience receiving a ton of information. You believe the value of a training program is based on the amount of content given. Your trainings involve a ton of "sitting and getting." You speak and the audience listens (or tries to.) Not much interaction, not much audience participation and not much of anything other than you talking.
2. You are more interested in the audience receiving a ton of understanding. You believe the value of a training program is based on the connectiveness of the content given. Your trainings are interactive, discussion-based and both mentally and physically engaging.
Path one is very presenter-focused. Listen to me. Here is what I know.
Path two is very audience-focused. Let's work on this together. I want you to experience the learning, not just hear the learning points.
Pick your path. Choose wisely. Let's hope for your sake and your next audience's sake that you choose number two.
