Creative Training Techniques

Thursday, April 1, 2021

If you want to know how to improve virtual presentations, motivate trainees, or create a sense of belonging in your next training session, tune in to the Creative Training Techniques podcast.

Becky Pluth, podcast host and CEO of the Bob Pike Group, is a respected L&D leader with more than 20 years of experience in the talent development space. With the majority of the podcast episodes running less than seven minutes, listeners can consume Pluth's expert advice and training insights in quick, snackable portions. More than 300 episodes are available for listeners to enjoy, and each addresses topics relevant to the work that talent development professionals and training facilitators do.


For example, in the episode "All Evaluations Are Not Created Equal," Pluth explains why high evaluation scores don't necessarily equate to learning. She proposes reliable ways to assess learning transfer. In another episode, "Flipping the Script on Learning," Pluth shares in five minutes how to sidestep basic information dumps and create more aha moments for learners.

Listeners can download a new episode weekly. Search for the show in your favorite podcast platform.
