5 Corporate Training Lessons from Airline Safety Videos

Posted by Rachael Jones on Nov 9, 2017 10:13:55 AM


When you take a flight, do you watch the airplane safety video? Be honest.

Many inflight safety videos are good examples of what NOT to do in corporate training videos. They are often boring and if you look around the plane, pretty much no one pays attention to them.

Several years ago, Virgin America tried to address this issue by producing an animated safety video featuring wacky characters. The voice over was delivered in a mildly sarcastic tone, as if to say, “Yeah, we know you’ve seen this a hundred times but we still have to show it so at least we can try to make you smile”.

Training Consultants: Learning Styles and Strategies

Posted by Lora Boiago on Oct 4, 2013 8:54:00 AM

Training Consultants: Learning Styles and Strategies

Introducing a new technology or strategic ideology across an organization can be a daunting task.  Training consultants are faced with many challenges when constructing corporate training programs, including a limited time frame, conflicting learning styles and differing learning strategies.  To accomplish desired results, consultants must make sure the learners are engaged and comfortable with the material and delivery.    

Learner engagement is so important that, in recent years, we have seen a significant growth of research into the subject of learning styles.  An individual learning style is defined as the way in which a learner takes in information, processes that information and applies it to solve and understand problems.  

As a training consultant, you will invariably be faced with many different styles and learners.  It is important to identify the underlying style of your audience before diving too deep into the creation of lesson plans and activities.  Depending on the size of your group, identifying the learner's preferred learning styles can be approached through having a discussion with the learners themselves, their managers or distributing a learning style questionnaire.  Being aware of the preferred styles will avoid a mismatch in style between yourself, the training consultant, and the learners.    

Once a clear picture of the preferred physical learning style is understood, lesson plans can be easily structured to specifically address some or all of the styles.  In most cases, a combination of two or more styles will be needed.      

To help you dive quicker into the creation and introduction of material, we’ve listed the 4 most common learning styles along with suggested teaching strategies to help engage each group.
