I became a corporate trainer over ten years ago and will never forget the first few weeks in my new role. A range of emotions surfaced, including nervousness and excitement. During this time, I was trained by one of my peers for the workshop I was to facilitate in a few weeks. Back then I wasn’t familiar with different learning preferences and became confused by the instructional methods my colleague was using. He was teaching me the way he preferred to learn rather than a way that worked for me—not the best practice for a train-the-trainer situation.
