Skills Training Videos in Coaching and Mentoring

7 reasons why you should use coaching and mentoring skills training videos

Skills Training Video

Are your employees short of time? Do you have a small budget for development? Or do you have a geographically dispersed group of coaches or mentors? Then use videos to provide robust skills training and development for your people. They will really create a high standard of mentoring and coaching knowledge in your organisation!

Here are seven reasons why skills training videos are the most effective approach to use.

1. Consistency

Each person receives the same message, with the same tone and delivery, keeping all participants on the same page. Of course not everyone will interpret a message in a similar way, but keeping the message consistent will help eradicate mixed signals.

This is particularly important if you’re trying to implement quality standards or good coaching and mentoring behaviours within your organisation.

2. Cost

Training videos can be easily uploaded to your organisation’s intranet, online training platform or learning management system, allowing your staff to access the training wherever they are, at a time that suits them.

This can greatly reduce travel costs associated with face-to-face training, particularly if employees are dispersed across various global locations.

3. Flexibility

Not having to rely on a facilitator means an individual can complete their training during convenient work hours (eg. during quieter times), where other areas of the business are not impacted. Use your videos anytime and anywhere and on any mobile device available.

4. Better learning retention

Compared to text-based communication, videos better engage your employees. Statistics show that every individual is likely to remember only 10% of textual content, 65% of visual content, but 95% of audio-visual content. Organizations that incorporate this mode of learning will more effectively engage learners’ attention throughout the course and enhances self-learning.

5. Pacing

This is particularly useful for employees with English as a second language. They prefer to watch a video that they can stop and start at their own convenience, rather than engage in face-to-face training.

6. Better engagement

These days your employees consume information through video outside of work, on You-Tube, Facebook, Netflix, etc, so it makes sense that they would be more receptive to communications through video for work.

7. Customised content

Take control of your training process. Customise your videos to your needs rather than trying to shoe-horn employees into a one-size-fits-all training model.

At Coach Mentoring Ltd we can develop the video content you need, personalised to your culture, programme, branding and desired content. We also offer great deals on standard development topics. So get in touch to discuss what you need.
