As a trainer, teacher or coach you have a set of rules, a set of behaviors that are unacceptable for a participant in your class or training session. That list likely includes things like:
- No texting or e-mailing.
- No side conversations.
- No horseplay or playing with techniques outside the course curriculum.
Why then would it be acceptable for you to violate those rules when you are a participant in someone else’s class?
People are watching you closely when you are a student in someone else’s class. They are looking to see if you are attentive and respectful to fellow instructors. They are watching to see how much you participate in discussions and the type of effort you put into the physical drills. They are watching the attitude you bring as a student to see if you are modelling the behaviors you expect in your class, or if you are a hypocrite.
When you are a student in someone else’s class, you need bring a great attitude, a great demeanour and be attentive and participative. Remember the other students are watching as is the instructor.
