Coaching for Their Dual Role:
5 Ways to Help SMEs Facilitate Learning
Bringing subject matter experts (SMEs) into the training process can be one of the best things learning leaders can do. SMEs bring depth of experience, enterprise-wide perspective, and credibility to the learning process.
But asking SMEs to perform this dual role also brings risk. While they want to do well in the classroom, it is an environment outside their expertise.
In this session, we’ll explore the unique needs of SMEs and examine ways to design learning to help them be successful. We’ll also introduce new language and explore nonthreatening coaching techniques to help them deliver the content effectively.
By the end of this session, participants will learn to:
· Position training with SMEs as a conversation that is to be facilitated rather than a speech that is to be perfected
· Design learning with SMEs in mind to allow for that conversation
· Use a framing strategy to help SMEs plan for and manage the learning conversation
· Encourage personal stories to bring training to life
· Examine the wisdom of training activities when working with SMEs
· Coach SMEs to facilitate the learning conversation
