Trainers' Qualities

Exceptional Trainers are Different than So So Trainers; Engage Them

  • There is a vast difference between the exceptional or great trainers and the average or below average (the so so trainers).
  • It is hard to find the great or exceptional trainers. Organizations need to put in efforts to locate the right trainers.
  • Generally, organizations are tempted to employ or contract the so so trainers since they charge much less than the exceptional trainers.
  • But training employees the right way is a serious business and organizations should not act penny wise pound foolish.
  • Employees' training is a long term investment whose returns are enormous only if the trainees are exceptionally trained.
  • And that is possible only by training your employees under the guidance of exceptionally great trainers. Even if their professional fees are far more than the so so trainers, it is prudent to invest in that kind of trainer with that kind of professional fee because of very high returns on this investment.
