SWIDC Community Leadership Enhancement Project Trainer’s Guide This Trainer’s Guide is to be used in conjunction with the accompanying PowerPoint Training Programs: Basics of Economic Development Community Leadership Marketing your Community with a Focus on Economic Development Economic Development Tool Box Leadership Quotes (To be used preceding any of the above training programs) Purpose of the Trainer’s Guide The purpose of the Trainer’s Guide is to allow individuals the opportunity to present the PowerPoint SWIDC Community Leadership Enhancement Training Programs to selected audiences. The trainer’s guide makes the presentation of the PowerPoint modules easier for first time presenters. It is suggested that trainers print-out this on-line resource for easy reference during training. Presenter Outline The PowerPoint training program contains a “Notes” area. The “Notes” area contains detailed information on each PowerPoint slide in the training program. Presenters should prepare in advance by printing out the notes section. The notes are intended to be used as background information and as information presented during the training. It is suggested that the trainer become familiar enough with the information for use with each bullet point on the slide. It is NOT recommended that trainers read verbatim from the notes area. Training Opening The first section of the training program is intended to be customized by the trainer based on the specific audience. It is recommended that the trainer... Open the session by welcoming the participants to the training program Review the agenda for the session Tell participants housekeeping information (turn cell phone off, restroom use, meal time) Conduct introductions Begin program Refreshments/Meal The SWIDC Community Leadership Enhancement Program was developed with the intent that a meal would be served immediately following opening remarks. It is suggested that a meal or refreshments be served in conjunction with the SWIDC training programs. Break Since it is recommended that a meal be served in conjunction with these training programs, no break is recommended. Guest Speakers The SWIDC Community Leadership Enhancement “Basic Economic Development” module was developed to be delivered by an economic development professional. Dr. Thayr Richey of SDG in Bloomington, Indiana, www.sdg.us, was hired by SWIDC to deliver the economic development module. Dr. Nancy Kovanic, of Isaac Paul & Associates of Evansville, Indiana, (email@example.com (812)426-2401) delivered the leadership module. It is suggested that a person with economic development expertise and/or economic development professional deliver the economic development training. It is also recommended that someone with leadership training experience or facilitation skill be used to deliver the leadership training. It is suggested that someone other than the trainer conduct the program introduction and close the training session. Suggestions for Handouts As a supplement, the PowerPoint training program can be printed-out in advance. The PowerPoint slides can be used as supplemental hand-outs. It is suggested that the PowerPoint slides used for hand-outs be printed 6 slides per page. In the PowerPoint print section, select Handouts and type in 6 slides per page. Suggestions for Customizing Every group of participants may require some customization of slides, pace, and length of program. This training was intended to be customized by the user. It is suggested that slides can be added, deleted, and combined from multiple modules to achieve the desired customization needed for specific audiences. During the SWIDC Community Leadership Enhancement Project, some counties divided equally the economic development and leadership components for the program. The training usually began with the basics of economic development, one break-out session, and concluded with a community leadership section. Importance of Break-Out Sessions The training was designed to maximize participant interaction. Break-out sessions are intended to be facilitated by the trainer. It is suggested that a minimum of one break-out session be included in every one hour of training. Participants should be divided into groups of 4-7 during break-out sessions. Each group should appoint a leader to record information and to report results to entire group to close the break-out session. Trainers should conclude each break-out session by asking participants to “report-out” what happened during the break-out session. Trainers may want to summarize break-out sessions on flipchart or type pertinent information on a PowerPoint slide.
