DID YOU JUST HEAR WHAT I THOUGHT I SAID?
Even at the best of times, communication can become snarled. It's easy to make assumptions
about what we say and what we hear. When we forget to apply the principles of plain
language to speaking and writing, or get careless in how we listen to others, the potential for miscommunication increases. Clear communication must be a deliberate choice, and most times, simpler – is - better.

THE FANTASTIC FACILITATOR
Think back to a training that got you intrigued, engaged, and excited. How was it different from the many you’ve attended that were okay… but not challenging, fun, or motivating? When YOU’RE the facilitator, how do you design a training situation that informs, satisfies, and empowers? We’ll touch on creating the environment, setting the content, using effective methods and techniques, addressing copyright issues, and living your ethics, with specific emphasis on how to legally integrate materials developed by others. This workshop format can be adapted to in-house, staff, and professional development training, for a variety of topics. You, too, can present material in a friendly, engaging format that makes it much more likely to be remembered and used. “Lessons learned in laughter last longest!” Proven training techniques and tips, group work, visual aids, role playing, lesson plans, pacing, to help YOU light the fire! This course is being offered in partnership with St. Paul and District Chamber of Commerce.
