Training From the Back of the Room

Set yourself apart.

If you train, coach, lead meetings or facilitate groups, take your training skills to an advanced level, regardless of the complexity of topics, size of the class, or level of learners. Discover six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science, then apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach others.

Training From the Back of the Room is an accelerated learning model that goes hand-in-hand with agile values and principles. During this dynamic two-day train-the-trainer program you will learn and apply the 4Cs instructional design “map” (Connection, Concept, Concrete Practice, Conclusion) then practice using the content you typically train.

Leave this train-the-trainer event with a trainer’s tool bag of practical, brain-based instructional strategies you can put to use immediately in your own training programs.
