  1. 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...
  2. How do you deal with the elephant in the room?

    How do you deal with the elephant in the room?
    How often do you think about what is not being said in a conversation? I think this is such a huge area that people miss in a conversation let alone how to deal with it. In coaching, when you are trained well, you learn to pay attention to your instinct. Just for a second think about how many times you...

    There is absolutely no doubt that we all have fantastic power, yes we can change our lives in an instant. What a tremendous feeling that is, to know that you can change your life in a split second and that no one can stop you, once you recognise this fact then you are on the road to truly sorting yourself out...
  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. 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. Getting people on our side

    Getting people on our side
    Why is it that we get some people working with us and others seem to work against us; no matter what we do to try and get along with them or convince them to work with us? It can be at the minimum a frustration and in the worst cases stressful and career-threatening! Well, people 'buy-in' to people they like...
  8. Positive, Mental Attitude

    Positive, Mental Attitude
    What is a positive mental attitude? There is a recurring theme in life that if you have a more positive mental attitude that you will be more successful, healthy, happier, and have more energy to deal with the adversity that life throws at you. From my performance coaching background, this is a mindset I have helped and guided others to...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
