‘Training that Sticks’ by Tony Bray


Training that Sticks.
By Tony Bray.
Fenman, 2000. A4 ringbinder, £75.
ISBN 1 3579 10864 2

This collection of 50 varied activities offers trainers and participants the opportunity to take part in experiential activities in a method that moves away from the ‘traditional’ methods of activity presentation and implementation. Rather than use ‘traditional’ briefs and handout instructions, and requiring results to be written on sheets of paper or flipchart sheets, interest is added by introducing the use of adhesive Post-its.

Some of the activities are significantly enhanced by this method, others would be equally effective my other methods. Some course participants (or trainers) may view the approach as gimmicky, so using Post-its might be most effectively used in a program with a restricted number of activities, or the changes can be rung with their use linked with the ‘traditional’ methods.

The sweep of the activities is very broad, ranging from self-planning, prioritizing workloads, drafting reports, and letters, preparing presentations and planning discussions; through planning a training program, assertiveness, learning a foreign language and delegating; to brainstorming, problem solving and team working.

A useful collection of activities that offer the activity facilitator an alternative to ‘traditional;’ activity approaches and which, if wanted by the facilitator, could be easily modified to a different form of approach.
