Types of Trainees    

A successful trainer needs to effectively engage various types of  trainees and adapt quickly in the learning environment to meet their  needs. Chapter 8 of the Blanchard and Thacker (2013) text lists and  offers tips on dealing with different participant personalities. Review  the three scenarios below. Discuss how you would effectively engage and  manage each group of participants in a 2-day training seminar. Apply two  to three specific adult learning principles and/or techniques to each  of the scenarios listed below.

Scenario A
Your colleague is a training specialist who has just  concluded an activity on techniques for overcoming challenges in the  classroom. He clearly understood the content, but did not ask questions  of the group to confirm their understanding. In addition, when  explaining activities, the directions were not clear and there was never  an opportunity to ask for clarification. What constructive feedback  would you give to your colleague?

Scenario B
Your colleague is a department manager who has just  opened a training session. Her opening included group introductions, but  she went directly into presenting content. About an hour later, a few  participants began talking out of turn. What feedback would you give to  your colleague on the impact this may have had on participants, and what  could have been done differently to avoid this situation?

Scenario C
Your colleague is a human resources manager who just  completed an activity followed by a group discussion. The activity went  well, but the debrief did not. As the facilitator, he had trouble  getting the group to answer his questions. The group did not appear to  be very engaged. What feedback could you give him on how he could get  participants to participate?

Your initial post should be 250 to 300 words. Use this week’s lecture  as a foundation for your initial post. In addition to the Blanchard and  Thacker (2013) text, use at least one additional scholarly source to  support your discussion.

Respond to at least two other posts regarding items you found to be  compelling and enlightening. To help you with your reply, please  consider the following questions:

  • What did you learn from the posting?
  • What additional questions do you have after reading the posting?
  • What clarification do you need regarding the posting?
  • What differences or similarities do you see between your initial discussion thread and your classmates' postings?
  • What are the differences or similarities in the techniques  recommended in your discussion compared to those identified by others?
  • Analyze the recommendations made by others for each scenario. Do you  agree or disagree with the recommendations? Why or why not? Provide  examples where possible. 

Your reply posts should be a minimum of 150-250 words each.
