ExperienceInnovation™ Train-the-Trainer

Meet Stephanie Tait, one of our Master Facilitators

Why Train-the-Trainer

Our workshops are transforming the way people learn, manage change and solve complex problems. They're fun to deliver, accelerate Facilitators' careers and enable your organization to achieve your desired change.

After Train-the-Trainer, your certified Facilitators will be the ones your people turn to when they have questions and want to make a difference. They will disseminate the knowledge, and the application of that knowledge, to help solve your organizational challenges.

You are the heroes of this story. To have external people deliver all of your workshops, or initiate all of your projects, creates an unhelpful dependency. Not only is Train-the-Trainer the most cost-effective way to deliver workshops to your people, but when we set up eager people in your organization to deliver workshops, it also signals to your organization that you have the aptitude internally to do this kind of work well.

The focus of Train-the-Trainer is to train Facilitators to deliver ExperiencePoint's award-winning workshops in a way that helps your people learn and practice innovation and change skills.

Expected Outcomes

Expect to:

  • Get exposed to 2 ExperienceInnovation™ workshops, built in collaboration with celebrated design consultancy IDEO.
  • Build confidence so that you're ready to facilitator "best ever" workshop experiences with either (or both!) ExperienceInnovation™ workshops.

As a result:

  • You'll be able to roll out any
    ExperienceInnovation™ | Learn and
    ExperienceInnovation™ | Aware
    across your organization.
  • You'll be an amazing in-house resource for your people to create new, innovative solutions and for your organization to realize its innovation goals.

1 Day ExperienceInnovation™ Learn Train-the-Trainer

ExperienceInnovation™ Learn Train-the-Trainer is a 1-day, open-enrollment training course facilitated by an ExperiencePoint Master Facilitator.

The focus of Train-the-Trainer is to train Facilitators to deliver the 4-hour ExperienceInnovation™ Learn and 90-minute ExperienceInnovation™ Aware workshops in a way that helps their participants learn and practice leading design thinking skills.

Your Train-the-Trainer Experience
We believe that people learn best by doing.

As effective learning requires more doing and less passive listening, participants experience innovation through our workshop, and teach it back to their peers, turning Train-the-Trainer into a 'flipped classroom'.

Virtual learning modules are available afterwards to complete certification

Our intent is to increase the amount of time that Facilitators spend practicing in situations as close to their actual work environment as possible, with meaningful feedback on their performance, to facilitate a "best workshop ever" experience for your people.
