    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.
