I run Best in People Webinars to help leaders learn faster and better for less cost. Though it is easier and more exciting for me to conduct live training programs for leaders, webinars have many benefits we can enjoy. I also make it a point to combine my webinars with live workshops.
Webinars and virtual workshops will remain the new normal. Sure, most of us will go back to live in-person seminars. But it won’t be the same anymore.
That’s because most traditional multi-day training programs often do not show the desired results.
Science has shown us that focused tiny learning brings mighty results. Technology, when used properly, can help us design the learning experiences that professionals need.
Webinars, virtual workshops, and online courses have benefits that are more valuable than traditional training. The pandemic highlighted the benefits of digital learning.
I have listed ten of these benefits.
1. Get High Impact Results
We focus on key priorities and provide snackable learning sessions so you will get the desired results.
2. Access Anywhere.
Participants can join virtual workshops wherever they are. A webinar can be browser-based.
3. Experience Personalized Courses.
There is exclusivity in virtual workshops and webinars. The program content is tailor-fit to your needs.
4. Learn Effectively.
Our virtual workshops focus on output and outcome. We eliminate out-of-scope discussions. You can visit each lesson again and again. Snackable segments are recorded to ensure high-quality presentations.
5. Encourage Self-Learning.
I use flip and rapid learning and provide participants with learning resources before and after the virtual workshops so they can learn independently.
6. Promote Social Learning.
Participants share insights, stories, questions, and answers in discussion boards exclusively created for them. Social learning helps speed up learning and makes it sticky.
7. Provide Flexible and Scalable Learning.
The virtual workshops and the resources provide participants with opportunities to learn at their own pace. You and I can also increase our reach. Virtual workshops may accommodate 20, 40, or even a hundred people. Webinars may host 2000 participants.
8. Foster Emotional Connections.
Remote employees find it challenging to connect. Virtual workshops provide a “face-to-face” experience for members of teams.
9. Save Time and Money.
No travel time is required. No need to pay rent for venues. In between learning sessions, you can spend more attention on job time.
10. Reduce carbon footprint.
Virtual workshops allow you to help save the environment.
