Spice of the Month Accelerated Learning Ezine for Trainers
Breaking into Training and Development ....Even in a Tough Economy
by Anne Thornley-Brown, President, The Training Oasis, Inc.
How do I Become a Trainer?
One of the questions that we get asked most frequently is "How do I become a trainer?" It's understandable. Training and development can be a fulfilling career. It is not without it's challenges and with layoffs, cutbacks in training departments and downturn in business for many consulting firms, this is a tough time to be breaking into training. Don't let that discourage you. When Anne Thornley-Brown, our President and founder, first tried to become a full time trainer in the business world it was during the 1984 - 85 recession. Despite the odds, she made the tough transition from a career in the non-profit sector to training, following a career path from professional counsellor to management training specialist to founder to president of an international consulting firm serving clients in Canada, Jamaica, and throughout Asia. So, while it's tough, it can be done.
Anne is an excellent mentor who taught me years ago how the training profession operated. With her as my coach, I progressed from being a telephone customer service rep to being a full time trainer in less than a year. A few years after that, I was promoted to Manager of Call Centre Training at one of the largest telecom companies in Canada.
Later, when I began my own training company, just one of her tips helped me save thousands of dollars in expenses for my business.
In this special issue of "Spice of the Month", we show you how you can break into training even during a tough economy. We leave out the usual platitudes, the strategies that are supposed to work but bear little resemblance to the challenging reality. We'll give you a step by step approach as well as access to resources that can help you.
