Editor's note
We hear a lot about the importance of managers empowering and
trusting their staff, but in practice letting go of control can
seem so hard to do. This week Police Training Supervisor
Sergeant Iwan Owen shares the secrets of the high-trust working
environment that earned him the title of Britain's Best Boss.

Elsewhere, you'll find fantastic advice on how to conduct a
long-term training evaluation and key information on making
your training event a "must attend".

Best regards

Equality Training in The City of Edinburgh Council
You've organised training on diversity management and disability
awareness. The approach is theatre-based - a risk! People
arrive resistant and cynical. They leave excited, motivated and
engaged. Word spreads. You get a call from senior management -
they want you to organise it for them too. Sounds unbelievable?

Trainer's Tip: Diversity Exercises
"You need to set some ground rules so that the participants feel
comfortable and safe enough to take risks, as taking risks is
required in order to learn." Exercises to get delegates thinking
about diversity from Eddie Newall.
