  1. Share those priceless “nuggets” of learning

    Share those priceless “nuggets” of learning
    As a trainer, we have a unique opportunity, sometimes a “once in a lifetime” chance to pass on what we know so that others can learn.  When we pass these on, it gives them a chance to use that knowledge or skill and even then, for them to pass it on. Imagine the effect of this in Business?  What would...

    Attending training - 5 tips to make you better prepared to learn
    Most people say they are nervous upon arrival about what's ahead of them in nearly every training course I have delivered on our Train the Trainer courses. As a trainer, it's one of my most important jobs to put everyone at ease as soon as they arrive, but we are human too and even as professional trainers, we've all been there...

  4. Developing as a Trainer, which path suits you?

    Developing as a Trainer, which path suits you?
    As a Trainer, the skills you need to develop may come easy to you, and if so, you’re definitely one of the lucky ones! It would amaze you how many people who have great natural trainer attributes don’t realise, and they also doubt themselves hugely.  When that amazing potential is untapped though, they start to absolutely flourish and to witness...
  5. The importance of effective design

    The importance of effective design
    Some of us are very lucky as trainers to have had fantastic training support and continued professional development, but many aren’t so fortunate.  One of the most common statements I come across when delivering PTT Train the Trainer courses is how many people are given a task by their managers to train something because “We need training on that”.  Then...
  6. Trying to get the ball in a basket without a ball!

    Trying to get the ball in a basket without a ball!
    Quite a tall order isn’t it?  How can you expect a task to get done if you don’t have the capability or resources to do it?  This is happening all the time with training, and it’s wasting valuable time and money that businesses can’t afford to lose. Ball in the basket - a relatively straightforward task really when we have...

  8. Fail to prepare - prepare to fail

    Fail to prepare - prepare to fail
    Think of the most professional delivery of a training session you have had personally and ask yourself why?  There could be many reasons you think that way but the most common factor will be because the Trainer was exceptionally well prepared and organised! I once remember arriving at a training session where we were sent to the wrong room, and...
  9. Building rapport in your training sessions is like climbing a hill

    Building rapport in your training sessions is like climbing a hill
    A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Colin and Jean in a very snowy Aberdeen.  Although they had never met, it turned that they shared an off-shore connection with common colleagues and friends, so rapport built quickly with them once the ‘ice’ had been broken.  Getting rapport built quickly in your room is so...
