We have all had training experiences that we would rather forget. Have you ever:
- Had someone blow off your questions saying, “It’s easy. You will figure it out,” when, unfortunately, you did not “figure it out”?
- Been waited on by someone wearing a “trainee” badge who struggled to assist you while there was no trainer in sight?
- Attended a training program in which you could not read the slides or hear the presenter?
- Been trained by an expert who went so fast you could not ask any questions along the way?
Describe your worst training experience and then discuss what you think are the three most significant issues that would make training ineffective or a bad experience for the trainee. Describe why you think these are the biggest problems. What could you do to correct these issues in a training program?
