My name is Chetan Pinto and I believe â€˜training has the power to change the worldâ€™. My experience tells me that a good trainer is one who can assist with both cognitive and emotional/behavioural improvements through simple and incremental positive habit changes. In other words the training shouldnâ€™t be too easy or difficult but incremental or what I like to call the â€˜+1 inputâ€™.
The training should ideally result in emotional/behavioral and psychological attitude changes through activities carefully designed towards unleashing curiosity and intrinsic motivation for long lasting positive improvements.
Iâ€™ve been able to successfully train several teams and individual get better at what they are doing by helping them identify their strengths, relate it with their passion and give them the confidence to actually accomplish the extraordinary things they always believed they were capable of but never really tried for a lack of positive reinforcement!
My training philosophy is essentially about establishing trust by -
Identifying what my trainees actually want to do- their strengths, interests and passion
Understanding their fears and insecurities holding them back from accomplishing their goals.
Designing positive habits that empower trainees to confidently accomplish their goals and also as a guidance system to rely on when they falter.
Some of my strategies include-
80/20 rule- Identifying a few things trainees could do right away to bring about the quickest change in the shortest possible time i.e unlocking empowerment!
Positive Reinforcement- Helping employees cope with the stressful environment by replacing negative behaviors with some positive ones- i.e Cognitive Behaviour Modification.
Helping them be more creative, happy and funny and adopting a more relaxed and positive attitude towards life. i.e. Workplace Delight!

An idea worth spreading
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve created a scalable template to quickly impart a minimalist version of Multiple Intelligences in the classroom that I hope will set the ball rolling for further teaching-learning transformation. I call it the Ã¢â‚¬ËœNew Teaching ManifestoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still a work in progress. But weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get there sooner with your help.
