Great Trainers - Masters of Magic

Purchase for $59.99 (AUD) incl. GST

Inviting the unexpected & looking at training from a new perspective

You may have your students physically present in the room, or online, but it is vital to also have them mentally and attitudinally present and ready to learn as well to achieve learning success.

In this webinar/workshop with Laurie Kelly from Brain Friendly Training, you will learn simple things you can do to guide your Learners’ Mental and Attitudinal States to achieve the best learning outcome possible.

Achieve the best learning outcome possible!

Train with the Brain in Mind and guide your learners’ Mental and Attitudinal States to achieve the best learning outcome possible. If you are a great Trainer and Assessor, then here’s a title to add to your resumé - "Master of Magic". As a brilliant trainer you are, in effect, a Master Manipulator or a “Master of Magic” because in training, manipulation is the name of the game for an effective transfer of knowledge to occur.

“Manipulator?” I hear you say, “no, not me!” Well, yes, it IS you, and there can be light and fun on the dark side - give it a try! The experience of learning is more than just consumption of information. For real learning and transfer of skills to occur, there must be a connection created within the learner's brain. Your role is to become a benevolent manipulator in making this magic happen. After all, successful learning is all about connecting brain cells. Learn how to be the master of that magic connection...
