The Training Trilogy, Third Edition

Conducting Needs Assessments
Designing Programs
Training Skills

By Dick Leatherman

“This is the best darn workshop I have ever attended.” Wouldn’t it be great if you heard comments like this at the end of every training session you present?

That’s the goal of the newly revised and updated Training Trilogy, Third Edition – to provide the classroom trainer with practical and real-world ideas for designing and delivering training that meets the real needs of participants and keeps them excited, engaged and learning.

The book begins where your job as a trainer does – with needs assessment. Part one examines basic statistics and other vital information on how to design surveys and conduct interviews. You’ll also learn ways to present your needs assessment information to management and associates.

The next step is designing the program. Part two looks at how to create fun learning experiences that keep learners involved, interested, challenged and motivated throughout the training session.

The book ends with the steps to becoming effective in the classroom. You’ll learn about all the things required to prepare for your training program and how to involve the participants – from beginning to end of your presentation.

In 18 chapters, The Training Trilogy covers issues of interest to both new and experienced trainers, such as:

  • Sampling procedures
  • Analyzing data
  • Selecting and designing program evaluation
  • Off-the-shelf packaged programs
  • Training methods and media
  • Preparing for the program
  • Opening, closing and following up

"If you were only buying one training resource, The Training Trilogy would be the book. It is the comprehensive, soup to nuts, everything-you-wanted-to-know guide to training brought to you by the master training guru himself, Dick Leatherman."

"Dick Leatherman has done it again! His Training Trilogy (Third Edition) is eminently readable, avoiding the jargon that trainers are often prone to use. From start (specifying the desired results in behavioral terms) to finish (measuring the outcomes back on the job), this book takes the trainer through the steps needed to create and administer a professional, high impact program. I'm delighted to recommend it for new and experienced trainers."

"The Training Trilogy, Third Edition, by Dr. Dick Leatherman is the definitive text on training. I have used Dick's concepts and materials in leadership and management workshops on four continents in a wide variety of industries for twenty-five years. His guidance is practical, entertaining and, more importantly, it really works. I enthusiastically endorse this book and strongly encourage all training professionals worldwide to become, as I have, a Dick Leatherman Disciple."
