Most people have been at a party or some other social occasion where someone has told an inappropriate joke and ruined the mood (at least temporarily). Likewise, we’ve all been somewhere where the course clown is able to lighten the mood and help people have fun.
The good news is that humour can help you make your training sessions just as engaging as those fun social occasions. Even better, you don’t need to be the class clown or an award-winning comedian to do it. This one-day workshop will help you identify what kind of humour you can bring to the training room, and how games can help you engage your participants.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Let’s Have Some Fun!
We will begin the day with a brief review of the learning cycle and adult learning principles. We will also discuss the value of games in training. Participants will then have an opportunity to share their favourite training game.
Getting Everyone on Board
During this session, we will discuss three things that can help participants see the value of training games. We will also discuss some great game experiences and some games that flopped, and what we can take away from these lessons.
Choosing the Right Game
Preparation is key to the success of any trainer. This session will discuss some different types of training games and activities. We’ll also talk about how to deal with reluctant participants.
When Games Go Badly
Despite our best intentions and planning, sometimes a game won’t work. We will discuss how to anticipate, avoid, and deal with problems.
Using Humour in Training
It’s not hard to be funny; just be CREATIF! We will explore each letter of this acronym during this session.
To break the day up and illustrate some of our key points, participants will take part in a quick, fun energiser.
Quick and Easy Games
Participants will take part in three easy games that can be adapted for many situations. Then, they will discuss the games from a trainer’s perspective.
Creating a Game
To wrap up the day, participants will work in small groups to create their own game.
At the end of the day, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
For details on the differences between “in-house” and “all-inclusive” please see below
We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
