Here are some tips from Kuza Biashara, on training an employee to achieve success:
Training starts with communication. It is very important for you to communicate properly with your employees and to understand what is required and expected from them. Explain to them why training is necessary and how they can achieve success through this process of training.
Communication is one of the important keys to success and nothing can be possible without it.
Appoint experts to train your employees. It is important that experienced personnel should train your employees. They should teach the employees easy and simple ways of doing things. Teach them what their work is and how can they be successful. They should be taught the importance of time management. Set targets to each employee and encourage them to work on it and also follow the set rules to attain success.
Make sessions interactive
Ensure that you make your training sessions interactive and lively as one-way teaching lessons are bound to be monotonous and tedious. Have regular question-and-answer sessions to enable you to know how much of the training your trainees have understood. They should be encouraged to ask questions and clarify their doubts. Use of visual aids and power point presentations would make the training sessions interesting. Organize debates and discussions among the trainees on topics relevant to their work.
Do not overload information
Be focused about what you teach. Prepare a syllabus of what would be taught in the classes and give it to your trainees beforehand so that they can come adequately prepared to the training sessions. Certain topics may be difficult to understand and may require more time. So, give them the time to follow and provide them with as many examples as possible to facilitate better understanding. You could also provide reading material to your employees in the training sessions. This will be very helpful to the employees as they can always refer to it, in case of doubts.
Training for business development is highly essential for building a successful team force for SMEs. Become an expert before you go on to train others. Remember what you are going to disseminate is eventually going to reflect in the trainee’s productivity too.
