As a facilitator, the level of your audience's engagement is important when teaching in a classroom or workplace. It's satisfying to see someone grasp a new concept, idea or skill, and to know you played a role in achieving that. In these courses, you will gain confidence and creativity through learning how to design and instruct adult learners or workplace staff. As you strengthen your communication skills, you will learn how to interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences. By using different theories and concepts, you will discover key coaching and training strategies to become a more effective mentor.
