Facilitator / Trainer

TrainingPros - Instructional Design Contract Staffing

Have you ever attended a class that was both engaging and interesting while also teaching you something? Have you ever walked into a class knowing very little about the topic but left feeling like an expert? These classes were delivered by professional facilitators or trainers. 

A corporate facilitator or trainer is well spoken, knowledgeable about adult learners, and can make a training class enjoyable for everyone.   

What does a corporate Facilitator or Trainer do?

A facilitator can wear many hats in an organization. They are the front line for helping a company develop a knowledgeable workforce with the skills that will help meet key business objectives. Facilitators focus on specific initiatives such as onboarding new employees, training employees on new software and technologies, enabling a sales team to sell the latest product line, ensuring the call center is staffed with competent agents, or educating employees on corporate policies and procedures.

Popular topics for our facilitators include: 

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) 
  • Unconscious Bias 
  • Process Mapping 
  • Dealing with or Leading Change 
  • Executive Meeting Facilitation 
  • Leadership Development 
  • Supervisor Training
  • Selling Skills 
  • Team Building 
  • Technology 
  • ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle, Workday, or Infor 
  • EMR Systems like Epic 

What skills does a corporate trainer need?

Facilitators have strong interpersonal and communication skills, they are strong researchers, very organized, and have studied adult learning theory. (Adult Learning Theory differs from pedagogy.) Some things Facilitators regularly do as part of their job include: 

  • Deliver training sessions. 
  • Analyze the effectiveness of a program. 
  • Creatively solve problems on their feet. 
  • Demonstrate strong empathy for the classroom participants. 
  • Give effective feedback. 
  • Keep classroom participants engaged. 

When you need a facilitator to train your employees, partners, or customers, a professional facilitator with the right background and certifications can effectively deliver the course to meet your expectations. 

What software does a Facilitator need to know how to use?

  • Learning Management Systems (LMS) 
  • Video Conferencing Tools such as Zoom, WebEx, Teams, and Adobe Connect 
  • Polling software 
  • Applicable software to be taught in the classroom 

You might want a facilitator with a specific certification such as: 

  • Myers-Briggs (MBTI) 
  • DiSC 
  • Crucial Conversations
  • Covey courses such as Situational Leadership 
  • Achieve Global
  • Korn Ferry
  • DDI
