We want to create a place where our members can easily exchange ideas, ask questions, and share knowledge. We’d like this blog to be that place. We have many, many members who have over 15 years of diverse experience and we have members who are new to our profession eager to learn.
One of the characteristics of trainers in general, is their desire to share. I see it all the time. When I started 30 some years ago, people like Bill Pfeiffer, John Jones, Tony Alessandra, Carl Albrecht, and even Ken Blanchard, the One Minute Manager himself, were members of our chapter and actively shared their ideas. Today, Marshall Goldsmith, Allison Rosette, and others are doing the same. But you don’t have to be an industry guru to share. Everyone has something they know that can help others.
So to begin this blog, I have a simple question... In your opinion, what are the three most important factors or traits that contribute to the success of a professional trainer or consultant?
