Live Training is the idea of making training as relevant to your work as possible.
It's about moving your work into the classroom. So not just theory and hypothesis. Practical ideas applied to your work.
Live Training means bringing your work into the training room.
Here's an example.
The best example of this is with telephone sales. About 18 years ago a client wanted to improve the telephone sales ability of their sales people. We developed Live Training to help the sales people improve their skills whilst talking to actual prospects.
They each arrived at the training with a list of prospects.
The teaching bit was where we went through the 'how to do it properly' bit. We covered, voice, personality, explaining value, handling objections, closing.
Then we went into the 'Live' bit.
Each sales person made calls to live prospects. We gave each one coaching and discussed success.
Each sales person improved during the session. They left with warm contacts and with actual meetings booked in the diary.
They developed their skills by doing them.
