What makes a good training course? Case Study One

The 45 participants filed slowly into the bare windowless training room. At the front stood the trainer behind a lectern. The desks were arranged in rows across the room and name cards indicated who was to sit where. On each desk sat a thick file full of dense typescript, and on the front of each file was the title of the training course the participants were about to receive: The customer service skills. The course was to last five days. The trainer waited until everyone had sat down. Then she said: Good morning, participants. Welcome to the course. I shall be describing several theories of customer service with the strengths and weaknesses of each. You may think you know all about customer service, but I can assure you that even experienced people make lots of mistakes. That is why you are doing this programme. Now if you turn to page 23 in your file, we shall begin with the Tosspot Theory of Service Standards

Does anything make you feel that this training session is not going to be a lot of fun?

What makes a good training course? Case Study Two How about a training session which starts like this?

The 20 participants entered in groups through the open double doors and paused to look around the room. It was laid out with five round tables each with four chairs, the walls bore posters and pin-boards, and large windows lit the room with natural light. On each table lay pads of paper, pens and pencils, sweets and bottles of mineral water. From somewhere, relaxing music could be heard. The trainer was moving around the room, shaking hands, introducing himself and chatting to people as they came in. When the course was due to start, he turned off the music, smiled round at the people in the room and said: Shall we begin? My names Wali Zahid and Ill be your trainer for the next three days. Welcome to Training of Trainers. Ill talk about what were going to be learning in a moment; first of all lets introduce ourselves and summarise for the rest of the group what we hope to get out of the workshop. Can we start with you, ------?
