I never want to grow stale as a trainer. After so many years of developing others, it’s tempting to put it on cruise control. That’s why I work to maintain certain disciplines as a trainer. Here are three things I want to do every time I train:
- I want to learn something new about the topic before I teach it.
- I want to maintain the posture of a learner by seeking to learn something new during the session from the learners.
- I want to process through each exercise and question in advance so I can be focused and flexible during the session.
These are three disciplines I believe will make me a better trainer.
