Trainer's Toolbox: 

Experiential Activities You Can Use Tomorrow

Bring your energy, curiosity, open-mindedness and join us at annual Trainers Tools event. Our seasoned training and development practitioners will engage you in practicing what they preach: high energy, engaging activities that you can apply within your organization or with your clients right tomorrow! You will have an opportunity to reflect on the tools and explore different variations of application. 

Prepare the Mind for Optimal Learning

The beginning of a training is a crucial time to set the tone and create a focused atmosphere conducive to learning.  Living in our busy and fast paced world, participants are often preoccupied with the personal and professional responsibilities that they are juggling.  Through experiencing a few practical mindfulness techniques, you will learn how to clear your mind and increase your alertness to enhance your learning experience.

Under Pressure: Turn It Into Your Positive Energy 

We've all been there. Perhaps it's the pressure of presenting to the C-Suite for the first time or providing training to a difficult audience. Or maybe its having your ideas dismissed by your boss or colleague. Instead of reacting, tensing, or resisting the pressure, how would you respond and who would you become if you welcomed it?  What if pressure-- the energy of change-- actually enhanced your performance, creativity, and well-being?

In this presentation you'll identify your reactive pattern when under pressure. You'll then practice centering and re-centering when thrown off balance by difficult people or stressful situations. You'll leave the session with a couple of techniques and tips that will turn pressure from an enemy to an ally within your daily life.

Training Closure: Make It Meaningful and Fun

In this interactive exercise, participants will reinforce their takeaways from training while also engaging in a team work. Knowing that participants are often tired and “saturated” at the end of a session, getting everyone engaged in healthy competition brings energy levels back while simultaneously reinforcing knowledge gained.
