Using Activities to Make Training Fun

Most people have been at a party or some other social occasion where someone has told an inappropriate joke and ruined the mood (at least temporarily).

Advanced Skills for the Practical Trainer

Behind every spectacular training session is a lot of preparation and meticulous attention to detail. The truly skilled trainer can make a program exciting.
