Investing in your employees and co-workers is such a smart move on companies bottom line. The more engaged and feeling like their input adds to the success of the company empowers everyone to help grow the company. Retreats, workshops, motivational seminars are all aspects of corporate trainings.
More successful trainings do more than just verbally bombarding employees with information. The most successful trainings include as many of our 5 senses as possible. Finding creative ways to engage the team helps retaining of the topic become easier.
Entertainment is a super effective way to engage co-workers and get their own creative juices flowing. With entertainment employees are learning while having fun! Tying in the motivational topic is key to it being just a fun day. For example when I am working on motivating sales teams I first impress sales people with some sleight-of-hand and then tie in my life story of being a magician and how sales impacts my life and career. The fun interactive elements might include teaching them an illusion or two to help ‘break the ice’ on their own in person sales calls or to help warm up the gate keeper and make them become a friend looking forward to your next sales visit! Magic adds a live visual that Power Point can never beat, it’s two dimensional. But the leaning of a magic trick is also hands on which helps retain the information longer while their hands, minds, and eyes are all connected to the corporate theme/lesson.
Trainings need to be so much more than just sitting in a classroom and listening to a speaker. People’s attention spans vary and the longer you
speak and nothing else stimulating is happening the more of your audience is quietly nodding off. Don’t let your next corporate training put your teams to sleep hire a corporate trainer that uses entertainment to get the themes across in an exciting way!
