Trainer Tools


The concept of Trainer Tools was simple: to share effective training tools and tips across the learning and development community in order to make all of us into more effective L&D professionals.

It didn't turn out like that.

In the end the discussions were much deeper than the sharing of tools and tips, and we ranged over much broader topics that just training delivery.

A better name would be Herding Eagles, a phrase a colleague of mine used to describe what it's like trying to work with Learning & Development professionals: majestic independent creatures who cannot be herded!

In each Trainer Tools podcast, John Tomlinson interviews an experienced L&D professional and asks them to talk on a specific topic of interest to people working in organisational learning and change.

Podcasts are released once a month (usually), except August and December when I go on holiday.

Some podcasts are accompanied by notes or other documents, all of which are free to use, copy, distribute or do whatever you like with. We ask only that you credit us where you use our stuff, but we can't do much if you don't. We can't afford lawyers, so we're just asking nicely!
