John Training A Group Of New Moderators For The Chapter In Puerto Rico.
One of the best practices adopted by YPO for a healthy forum is Forum Moderator Development (formerly knows as MTP or Moderator Training Program). This is a critical program because it not only teaches the necessary skills to effectively run a forum meeting, but it also gives the participants a sense of what forum can “feel” like.
The skills learned include:
Best Practices Meeting Format
Understanding the Key Success Principles and How they Apply to your Forum
Dealing with difficult issues/situations/members
Techniques to Build an Effective Parking Lot
Maximizing the Power of Presentations
Understanding the Resources Available to Support Moderators
Who Should Attend?
This needs to be a mandatory experience for all incoming moderators of your Forum. That being said, moderator development can also be done for the entire Forum, which is a great way for new Forums to get up to speed quickly. John also serves Chapters and Regions as they offer moderator development to their respective members.
