Nakamura was certified in the Bob Pike Group Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp in 2007. Now, five years later, she has trained over 1,200 others in the participant-centered methods. She also worked to get two of Bob Pike’s books translated into Japanese: the groundbreaking Creative Training Techniques Handbook and The Fun Minute Manager.
During a luncheon to celebrate DHC’s achievement, Nakamura shared one example of how the interactive training methods have contributed to corporate bottom lines through increased retention. During one particular technical training using traditional lecture methods, only 12 percent of the learners who needed to utilize the technical process for their jobs could remember three of the four points they had heard. However, Nakamura shared, after using creative training methods and incorporating appropriate gestures, retention increased to 82 percent of the learners remembering three points.
In the last year, Nakamura has more than doubled her annual sales for Bob Pike programs and she is now working toward her master trainer certification in two programs.
