10 Ways World Class Trainers are Making Training Stick

What are these 10 simple tricks?

So, there are ten criteria to creating stickiness in training…

They are:

  1. Train using visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and tactile tools

It is vital to use the right tools for the right participants. You should remember that everybody learns differently and you have to cater for that.

  1. Make skills relevant and related

If you can make the skills that you are teaching relevant to your participant’s work and everyday life then you are one step closer to teaching them something that will last.

  1. Use low density classes

Using smaller classes creates a personal and highly tailored training experience, at iTOL we train to a maximum of 6 people at a time.

  1. Use short classes and short modules

Long taught classes are a thing of the past! It has been proven that shorter bursts of information will keep an audience engaged and willing to learn.

  1. Repeat the message often

Repeating your message will reinforce it, making it the most prominent aspect of the learning experience.



  1. Keep the message consistent

Don’t change your message, this can cause confusion and reduce clarity. You want your training to be as clear as possible.

  1. Provide the learner with motivation

Motivation is key, if you can find a way to motivate your learners then they will be completely on board with your training. This can be achieved through rewards, in and out f the training environment.

  1. Provide the learner with confidence

If your learner isn’t confident in the environment it will damage the learning experience. Give them the confidence to speak, this will create a two way learning process from which they can take a lot more.

  1. Provide the learner with support

Let the learner know that you as a professional are there for them, you can provide your insight without prejudice and help them to develop.

  1. Provide the learner with feedback.

Give your learner constructive feedback, perhaps they need to work on a skill a little more after your training. If they take your feedback on board their training will stick and they will develop professionally.
