Destination Facilitation – A Travel Guide to Training Around the World
The world may seem to be getting smaller and more familiar, but that doesn't mean the same instructional techniques or training styles work everywhere. Organizations worldwide need talent development professionals who can design and deliver learning content that meets the needs of diverse workforces. Destination Facilitation is rich in tips for creating incredible training experiences around the globe. This book brings together a team of 16 expert trainers to share their knowledge and wisdom on productive training results, whether you're in Abuja or Zurich. These explorers present the best techniques for needs assessments, design processes, facilitation, and classroom management in whatever country or region you're visiting.
Contributors include Matthew Axvig, David Brown, Alfredo Castro, Dan DeRoche, Bahaa Hussein, Fady Kreidy, Chan Lee, Claudia Salazar, Deniz Senelt Kalelioglu, David Smith, Donna Steffey, Marby Tabungar, Hamza Taqi, Kedar Vashi, Denise Walker, and David Xue.
Get to know your audience and master body language dos and don'ts. Plan for the logistics and technology constraints of training abroad. And avoid the cultural mistakes that interfere with learning transfer.
When the opportunity to design and deliver training in another country arises, don't miss out. With Destination Facilitation, you'll be prepared to say yes!
