Quite a while ago, I received a mail from a listener asking the following questions:
I guess many of your audience are freelance so it would be an interesting topic to discuss how they learn from or get community feeling when working alone.
How do you trust your own internal feedback when all your clients think you're great (but you only have a happy sheet).
In an organisation how do you champion best practice when the culture is content with chalk and talk?
We recorded something that touches on the first part of this with Claire Simmons (called "Training can be a tough and lonely business, so look after yourself") but I thought we could dig deeper and so I asked Paul Tizzard, someone who has worked as both an internal and external consultant, to have a crack at providing some sage advice.
aul Tizzard did his first "Train the Trainer" course in 1986 and has been a professional trainer since 1996 and independent since 2001. He is a trained presenter, coach and facilitator. Since becoming independent, he has been fortunate to work in many different countries with an eclectic range of industries and companies.
I feel extremely lucky to have the best job in the world
Paul set up Virgin Atlantic's Flying Without Fear programme, has written five books, is a Fellow of ITOL and has run more learning events than you could shake a stick at.
If I am lucky, I will pop my clogs about 95 years old whilst writing on flip charts!
