How Trainers Overcome their Lack of Experience!

What does it mean to have ‘real’ training experience?

Does it mean having the know-how? Or mastering the training skills? Maybe it’s the number of official training hours you’ve received. To make it clear, many references agreed that it’s the number of training hours that delivered by you as a trainer. This is why if you just achieved a professional Train-The-Trainer program, you are considered as a fresh trainer who lacks the real training experience!

In fact, many of novice trainers often get discouraged when they come across a job advert that says that this corporate trainer position requires more than three years of experience in training. While most of the time this means that you don’t qualify for that job – assuming that you have just started out, it’s certainly not the end of the world.

Whatever the case, this doesn’t mean that you can’t go ahead and apply for the job. While training experience seems to be more important than skills, some talent professionals prove that it could be overcome.

If you are looking for a job as a trainer professional, but think that you may lack experience as a trainer, there are many other ways to overcome that. Here are few of them.

How to overcome the lack of experience as a trainer?

As mentioned above, senior trainers can tap into lots of personal experience as a content expert. Many of novice trainers don’t have stories about personal experience to incorporate into their training. Therefore, in this post, IBCT will give you some tips on how to overcome the lack of your experience as a trainer.

– Relate to your personal experiences

Expert trainers tell their personal experience. You too, try to spot all relevant personal experiences you went through. Sometimes you can ask yourself probing questions to uncover them.

– Report experience of others

Professional trainers collect relevant stories and incidents from other people then tell them, as well as ask participants to share their experiences.

– Use analogies, refer to movies or famous people

Seasoned trainers use familiar incidents and situations to relate to the subject of the training.

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

I believe that you need to publish more about
this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not speak about these issues.
To the next! Cheers!!
