They?ll Forget You as Soon as They Walk out the Door?

unless you make your training memorable. This essential resource is your way to make your mark. Fifty ways to close your training sessions and presentations so they won?t forget you?or your training.

People forget your training faster than you think. One year after a training event, participants retain and use only 15% of what they learned! Your training might be engaging, but if participants don?t transfer their learning to the workplace, your efforts will be wasted.

Why is your training so forgettable?and what can you do to fix it? According to training master Bob Pike, two of the most important learning concepts are "primacy" and "recency." People don?t remember middles?they remember beginnings (primacy) and ends (recency). Many trainers already use primacy to their advantage. They start training sessions memorably with a rousing icebreaker, or with a spirited overview of what?s to follow.

But you?re probably letting the ends slip through your fingers. Some trainers conclude training sessions by looking at their watches and saying, "Oh, time?s up! Goodbye!" By trailing off with a whisper, you?re missing an opportunity to reinforce your training. You?re helping your participants to forget everything you?ve taught them. And you?re ensuring that your participants won?t transfer their learning to the workplace.

Stop this brain drain by ending with a bang! This invaluable book is packed with practical closers. Each activity lists the necessary time and equipment, a suggested group size, and an intended purpose, so you can choose one that?s just right for your needs. Solem and Pike show you all the essentials, and preparation is quick and easy. So little time to invest for such a HUGE payoff! This book is training dynamite: make it your secret weapon today.
