Enrollment is Never Leaving Your Audience Behind
Enrollment = relationship. In context of sales, people talk about “closing” sales. Enrollment is opening relationships with no end in mind, and never leaving people behind. Relationship is something that you open and don’t close it.
Common mistakes speakers and trainers do in enrollment
- The number one mistake is: Not Pausing. A speaker keeps speaking without noticing that some people could not follow you and were left behind, not asking questions to the audience.
- Speaking from your head only. Make sure you speak from your heart too, keeping a balance.
- Being too ego-centered, talking about things you are interested in but not listening to your audience very well.
- Not recognizing different learning styles. Everybody learns differently, that is why a trainer should involve the audience in talking, writing, even touching.
Great examples of enrollment
There are trainers and organizations doing enrollment. Look for “accelerated learning,” “superlearning.” Often NLP trainers are great examples too. In particular trainers such as Jay Abraham, Ken Honda, and Jack Canfield.
Finally, the best TED talks do fabulous at enrolling.
