  1. 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...
  2. Reflection on remote delivery

    Reflection on remote delivery
    As we enter our next lockdown, the use of technology once again comes into peoples minds. Like many training companies, we have had to adapt over the past eight months. We have had to change and learn like everyone; although we initially went into the world of remote delivery as sceptics. We are now delivering many courses remotely, and you...
  3. Unconscious bias and training

    Unconscious bias and training
    I love the way we operate as human beings, the way we think and act.  Of course, our ‘Paradigm’ or way of thinking is a product of conditioning.  Sorry if this is the first time you have heard this, but we have all been conditioned since our first breath in our fantastic world. Conditioning has affected our Paradigm since we...
  4. 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...
  5. It’s got to be perfect

    It’s got to be perfect
    Of course, it is perfectly natural to want to be perfect, and I would say it’s a great trait to have in the workplace.  Individuals who constantly want to improve want to do a great job and we all like working with people who want to do that.  When we were young we were happy to make mistakes, we learnt...
  6. New module for PTT

    New module for PTT
    The last six months have had a massive impact on the training sector. We have had to adapt significantly, and what we thought was going to be a temporary measure has now become the norm. We have changed! The reality is that we now have to train people remotely, and this can add additional pressure on trainers, who now not...
  7. Training, it’s really about changing habits

    Training, it’s really about changing habits
    I am fortunate, and I get to deliver training to some fantastic people and most want to learn skills.  It could be skilled on how to be a great leader or an excellent trainer.  People come to training to learn skills, and I understand that I like learning skills too.  However, the reality is something different, and when you understand...
  8. 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...
  9. Use the bathtub!

    Use the bathtub!
    On our management and train the trainer courses I am fortunate enough to meet some great people.  One thing that always surprises me though, is the lack of feedback given by managers and trainers to members of staff or individuals we are training. Whether you're a manager or a trainer, you need to know how to give effective feedback.  Not only...
  10. Beirut - they need our help

    Beirut - they need our help
    I am fortunate I have been able to travel to some fantastic parts of our planet both for please and work. Working overseas is always an excellent experience for me; you get to experience different cultures and meet some fantastic people along the way. Without a doubt, the best place I have worked in is Beirut. I remember the first...
