Screening Tips To Hire Best Trainers

Reflect and think about your skills and your employee response towards learning program that you have planned for all through these years?

  • Is your panels the right people to THINK & MAKE good hiring decisions?
  • Apart from being the ‘Subject Matter Expert’, are they brushed up on different types of learning methods in classroom to anticipate high engagement?
  • People are divided to Analytical THINKERS & Creative THINKERS. Hence if you invited Analytical panel members who needs to evaluate a people’s skill program, they may have 100% doubtfulness for seeing if its workable.

Guiding Training Department in Malaysia to Think - Making Thinking Matter to HR, Training and L&D Teams

We found that the number 1 reason why learning maturity of employees are not catching on that fast in Malaysia is because the people in the HR, Training and L&D Teams are not thinking enough themselves.

  • How to build a successful and meaningful Screening Panel to select the best trainer for your training programs.
  • How to start building your L&D teams to develop patterns of thinking.

Did You Hire a Conman as Your Corporate Trainer?

We have all come across someone that cheated.  Will this happen in our training industry? Answer is ‘Hell Yeah!’.  During our early days of starting our company, we were conned by a trainer who had a very good track background of clients, written many books and speak on radio shows.

Our founders did not have enough money to do a website, hence we were vulnerable to this trainer who offered us to do our website, with a downpayment fees …well the rest was history.  Moving forward, TLMM keeps our spirit, toes, ears and eyes open for all sorts of people that profess to be ‘awesome’ but may fall into our books as ‘con-mans’.  Here is what we wish to share with you on how you should be alert and not hire any trainer for the sake of his ‘beautiful’ outlook.

Read on and lets have coffee if you need to know more gossip of the latest con-artist trainers in Malaysia.
