Designing and Facilitating Training - Interactive

Seven Dimensions
Updated May 12, 2020

Kylie Bell talks with Eve Ash about moving from workplace needs to designing training that both develops skills and solves problems. Kylie Bell outlines how she customizes training in the context of an organization’s wider needs. She measures her training’s effectiveness by the amount of change achieved for the better.

First, Kylie determines whether a company is experiencing a training need or a leadership issue. She considers the training in a wider organizational context and ensures the leadership is onboard first. Her training is customized around goals and outcomes, an organization’s available time, a high degree of interactivity and tapping into people’s emotions. For the training to succeed, there must be change; this is ascertained in the post-training feedback and evaluation.
