As a Trainer...
These things are important to me:
Making a real difference in the lives of real people
Creating a safe and comfortable learning environment, having the room set up “just so.”
Arriving an hour early to accomplish that “just so”
Being organized but flexible enough to meet the needs of the group.
Feeling that I am connecting with all of the training participants.
Taking care of myself while on the road (Diet & exercise)
Meeting – or better yet! - exceeding your expectations.
Balancing my home and work life; my family supports me well!
You support me as a Trainer when you:
Tell me what you need. Give me clear and honest feedback.
Let me set up (& take down) my equipment and charts myself. I appreciate your help, but I want to feel confident that everything is as I need it to be, that it’s … you know… “just so.”
Provide some background information on the group we are training so that I can best be prepared to meet their needs.
Don’t take offense at my lackluster food preferences. I’m a picky eater but I can usually find something I like. I carry protein bars just in case.
The GPS is my greatest friend. If it won’t get me there, please let me know what will (i.e. clear directions).
Email is the best way to reach me. If I don’t know you well, remind me how/where we met. Allow me a few days to respond but check back if you don’t hear from me within the week – you might have landed in my junk mail!
Give me your whole self in the training experience. I’ll give you mine.
