Trainer’s Tip: Take Note


Lucy Sleigh explains how with a little bit of prep work, you can set up your own bitesize trainer's library.

One thing I have found invaluable as I have moved from training job to job - a notebook!

The web is full of excellent little snippets, quotes, energisers and icebreakers and so are other trainers that you will meet.

Just a little tip from me - if you come across something you like the sound/idea of, get a nice notebook and write it down. Even if you aren't sure how you will use it or when you will need it. Keep this little book on your desk and when 6 or 12 months down the line someone asks you to put together a session on XYZ, have a flick through your book and it is quite likely you will have something in there to help or inspire you.

As well as quotes, exercises and concepts I also jot down useful websites I come across. It can take a while to build up your notebook (I am on my 2nd one now) but I would feel lost without mine!

I know you could store the info electronically and I am sure that would work just as well, but I am rather fond of a paper version to flick through.
