Event Details

When you need to repair an appliance on the fritz, you can consult the instruction manual.  But if you’re stuck when designing or facilitating training, what resource can you turn to for solutions to your problem?

Join Sophie Oberstein, the author of the new ATD Press book Troubleshooting for Trainers, for a meeting that will provide strategies for some of the 45 common training challenges from the book, including:

  • Requests for training about topics you know nothing about
  • Individuals with varied levels of skill and interest in your training sessions
  • Not enough sign-ups for your offerings
  • Not being seen as a value-added organizational partner

Sophie will customize this session to meet the needs of those who enroll (via a poll sent upon registration).  This interactive session is geared toward new trainers, accidental trainers, occasional trainers, as well as experienced trainers who are looking for new tips to resolve their training challenges.
