What Clients Are Saying:
“The feedback from the studios indicates that you “walk on water”! All four studios were extremely happy with the two-day sessions you conducted. One of the comments was that often do not we get trainers who try to adapt their presentations to the way we do business and therefore many times miss the mark. You, however, were right on target!"
—JOHN BUTORAC, Social Security Administration

Take your training skills to a more advanced level as you discover how the human brain really learns, which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. Explore the most current “cognitive neuroscience” about effective instruction – how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves and uses knowledge. Discover six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science, then apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach others.

In the two-day program you’ll learn more about the most current “cognitive neuroscience”—the brain science behind effective instructional design and human learning.

During the class, you’ll get to practice six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science so you’ll be able to apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach. You’ll become familiar with numerous interactive instructional strategies you can use with any topic and any group of learners. And you also receive a 55-page workbook only available with this program, as well as copies of Sharon Bowman’s best-selling books, ”Training from the BACK of the Room!” and “Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick.”
You will also learn the 4Cs, a brain-based, four-step, Accelerated Learning instructional design model now used by hundreds of trainers around the world.

Leave this train-the-trainer event with a trainer’s tool bag of practical, brain-based instructional strategies you can put to use immediately in your own training programs.
