There are some good tips on being effective with training, but the one that stuck out to me was this:
"#9. Be like chameleon
Be flexible. Make your training vivid and dynamic."
It's hard to be flexible. You have an agenda to get through, and limited time to do it in, but the very best trainers can keep the class moving through the agenda, and still be able to react to the group and keep it relevant to them.
The nervousness before going in front of an audience is natural, and inherited from out ancestors. This bring to mind two points:
1. You can learn to move past it by understanding that the fear is probably overblown in your head. Truly, your mind is in fight or flight mode to protect you from dying, when embarrassment is the worst actual outcome.
2. When you don't feel at all nervous, it may be an indication that you don't care at all what the audience thinks, that is why your brain isn't being triggered, there is no potential harm. As a trainer, I know that is the day I need to find something else to do for a living.
