As part of a training session, there are many options available to help your students to implement their newly acquired knowledge in practice.  One of those options is to work with a Role Play actor. This gives students “in-the-moment” experience of the impact of existing and/or effective behaviour. And it allows students to experiment with new behaviour in a safe setting.

Every time I catch myself worrying about something I try to think back about this scientific study I once read. And I'd like to share some of the facts from that study with you.

So that means: 92% OF ALL YOUR WORRIES ARE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME !!! Just let that sink in... Happy Monday everyone!
