Presenter vs. Facilitator -- Which are YOU???
Are you a Trainer or a Facilitator? Does it make a difference?
I was partnered with a woman for a week who labeled herself as a “Motivational Speaker”. At the end of the day mid-week she asked me in the car; “What’s the difference between a trainer and a facilitator?” My answer was; “A trainer believes that when they are speaking learning is taking place. A facilitator believes that when the learner is talking learning is taking place.” She looked at me with complete confusion. She couldn’t comprehend the difference.
During this session, we will explore:
- What the difference really is between the two
- How your approach affects different parts of the brain
- What is it that you TRULY want people to be able to do as a result of your session?
As we work through this session, the topic will be both facilitated and trained so you can see the difference.
