I'm Talking to You If You...

...are having trouble paying for expensive train-the-trainer programs!

Bad News or Great News?

Do you want the bad news or great news first? Okay, let’s start with the bad news because I want to leave you with the great news.

Bad News

Here it goes…You can no longer freestyle, wing it, fake it, or make it up as you go if you want to remain credible and have people continue to pay for your learning events. There, I said it! The purple (only because purple is my favorite color and not pink ☺) elephant in the room. I’m calling out all imposters (Remember my previous blog, Beware of Imposters).

At some point, calling yourself a trainer without having the proper skills will catch up with you in the following ways:

  • People will not complete your programs because they lack engagement.

  • Not knowing how to design, develop, and deliver training will tarnish your reputation because you appear to be disingenuous and unskilled.

  • Diminish your confidence because you lack the skills to truly engage your learners and meet their expectations.

  • It will hit you in the pocket by a loss in revenue.

  • Worst yet, you will be exposed by those who do have the skills, credentials, and certifications to call themselves trainers. (Remember my previous blogs on, designing, developing, and delivering training. Click on the link and then the “Training” tab for all of the training that I’ve rescued.)

Great News!
