“Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.”
As a trainer you are an advanced student. The question is – Do you have the attitude of a student?
Are you continually seeking new knowledge?
Are you asking questions of your students, your peers, those who went before you and of yourself?
Are you asking questions to determine how information from other areas can be applied to your area of instruction?
Are you asking questions to find out the history of the drills and exercises in the lessons plans?
Are you asking your course participants what they like about your training and what you could do to make it a better learning environment for them?
Are you asking people to observe your training and give you feedback on how you can make it better?
Are you asking other trainers how they engage participants in the learning process?
Are you asking yourself what you need to do to make yourself a better trainer?
Are you asking yourself how you need to change your programs to make them new, fresh and more engaging for the participants?
Are you attending training as a student and asking questions to gain new knowledge and new insights?
At the start of my four day Excellence in Training Course I make it very clear to the participants that I do not have all the answers. In fact, I have far more questions than answers. I believe strongly in the power of questions as a tool to help us all learn and grow.
