Thank you Elenap all sound advice: found myself saying 'Yes!' 'Yes!' 'Yes!' to each successive point. Should be required reading before embarking on any presentation incorporating a slide-show.

I like your 'learner', 'tourist' and 'prisoner' analogies: I cane see that being very useful, so thank you!

A very informative article, with lots of practical tips and advice. And some very recognisable types as well!

Thank you for these insights Jasmine: a reminder of how important it is for us to reflect on our own performance in the classroom as well as that of those we are training.

Thank you for this thought provoking piece Bruce. Catherine makes a valid point about the instinctive reaction of 'putting someone on a course' although some of the qualities that you identify can be taught. Importantly, they are also qualities that can be observed and even assessed which means that developmental needs can be addressed, whether by formal training, coaching or mentoring. They are all qualities that we should look for in ourselves, in our colleagues and in our teams.
