Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers

 Become an Effective On-the-Job Trainer!

 When employees have the right knowledge, skills and attitude to do the job right, it:

- Saves time
- Avoids problems
- Engages employees
- Reduces turnover

This hands-on workshop uses the following system:

TELL: describe the procedure and why it's important

SHOW: demonstrate the procedure and emphasize key points

DO: allow the learner to try to answer any questions

REVIEW: are the steps in the procedure done correctly?


After the workshop you will be able to:

 Plan for organized and effective trainings

 Make trainings meaningful to employees

 Measure and follow up to see if people really learned!

Trainings are conducted simultaneously in English and Spanish
