Description

Subject Matter Experts CAN be the perfect addition to your training department IF you know how to select and prepare them for success. If the strategy in your organization is to “Wind’em up and let them go!” then this workshop is for you!

In this session you will learn to:  
  • Develop and implement criteria for SME selection
  • Craft a strategy for developing their role as adult instructors  
  • Know when they are ready to go solo!

The first thing on the checklist when turning SMEs into trainers is selecting a viable candidate. Sharing a tried and true Training Clinic system, participants will review some core SME Selection Criteria and then make some additions to customize it to their organizational needs. Once selected, SMEs need to be trained in the ways of adult learning and facilitation. Examples are given of content and processes that must be taught to SME’s to help them transition into trainers.  A start to take-up process is shared and discussed, outlining how to begin to prepare the SME’s to train on their own and showcase their newly found skills along with their breadth of subject matter.
