We see it all around us. Social media cues us into what captures someones attention…amazing visuals! We are much more drawn to visuals than ever before. Not only are we drawn to images that can capture a thousand words, people retain the imagery better than words describing the same thing. So why not use the same technique in our workplace training sessions?
Since about 90% of what people learn comes through visual stimulation, training should incorporate images, photos, and videos into their training content. If performing a training presentation use slides with just a title that provides the key point along with an image. This tactic during a training presentation works better than traditional bulleted slides.
For the cherry on the top, make sure you also add some hands on practice for every new procedure and process before finalizing and signing of on a completed training.
