Most of how we engage with other people in the workplace, on training courses, or in coaching sessions, is based on having conversations. The quality of these conversation directly impacts our effectiveness, and as educators and coaches, our ability to have powerful conversations that help to create insight and learning is a huge part of how we succeed.

Are you colluding with learners, leaving them in comfortable mediocrity in order to get nice end-of-course feedback?
What is the most important thing about the training courses you deliver?Is it that you get good feedback? You get top marks on the happy sheet? The organisation is willing to invite you back for more work?Probably all of the above, because this is largely how we measure our success.But it's not how we succeed.We succeed when people learn, and more so when they implement that learning and improve their performance, improve the organisation, improv...

How much effort we put into the very first part of training courses, in breaking the ice and building rapport, can directly impact the effectiveness of the rest of the day. This is especially true if you rely on input from learners and seek to create a social environment where people learn from each other, not just the trainer at the front.
