Key Role your competencies play in L&D

Seeing the above image, you must be wondering what training competencies Am I talking about. Every craft needs to be practiced and improvised consistently to persist in the industry. Organizations and also individuals who are obtaining your training services look up to you as Learning Support System. Just give a thought about what kind of responsibility you carry with you.

Let’s draw light on the dimensions a trainer has to regulate.
  • Associative Competency

    To what extent do you attempt to socialize with others? How often do you interact with new people or show interest in getting to know them? In order to develop people, we need to sharpen our networking skills as trainers. The augmentation of empathy and altruism will improve our human characteristics. This refers to building a connection beyond a task or reason. The simple habit of smiling and saying hello to our neighbours or even colleagues and finding out what their interests are or their outlook on life is. Have a conversation with your social media connections to find out if they align with your goals or how you can contribute to them. This goes far beyond learning from books.

  • Upskilling Competency

    Upskilling and reskilling in your niche make you a seasoned player in your field. Be knowledgeable about new methodologies, trends, and activities that can spruce up your training programs. When you constantly incorporate new elements into your content or training, you will remain motivated, as well as the engagement level of your learners will be high. As trainers, our goal is to provide higher performance in our deliverables, which can only be achieved by adopting the evolving needs of our learners and embracing the latest modus operandi, which gives us a positive breakthrough in our careers.

  • Collaboration Competency

    During an era when the training industry is producing coaches and trainers in large numbers, being collaborative is more effective than being competitive. You can maximize your potential when you find compatible comrades. When you are committed to your future success, this approach is successful. The goal of the collaboration is to maximize the potential of each individual’s expertise, as well as the solution that can be provided by their contribution. When selecting your tribe, be wise. Discover new ways to encourage each other while providing opportunities to grow. Synergizing always brings a unique combination of skills and strengths.

  • Visualizing Competency

    “How many of us envision our success, experience it and create plan of action?” Visualizing integrated with game plan drives the goal of accomplishing results. It’s crucial to return to your objectives without fail to make steady game plan makes it order. Picturing is a magnificent capability to make blue print of your course. Each model obviously configures visual application for example, thinking outwardly we can make engaging storyboards, limit down the use of text to create infographics. Representation can be powerful in connecting with content to achieve the result of the preparation.

  • Adapting Competency

    Learners have been evolving, thus their learning needs. I came across trainers who apply obsolete methodologies that are no more in practice. Adapting new technology or upgrading to new models is considered as threat. Though seasoned trainers have rich knowledge and experience it’s challenging for them to translate it to an instruction program due to resistance to adapting technology or new tools. Frequent evaluation of training outcomes, conducting surveys, reflecting on wins and failures to see the scope of improvement, and also exploring the industry will aid in creating and delivering cutting edge modules. Feedback is another constructive way to bring detailed orientation. Adaptability is one of the key competencies that makes you a top-notch trainer.
