Top 10 Posts About Training and Facilitation Skills


It’s summer vacation for phase(two)learning! Please enjoy this recap of some favorite phase(two)learning blog posts! Look for fresh, new content returning next week!


Last week, we recapped the Top 10 phase(two)learning blog posts about onboarding – I hope you enjoyed it! Since the other topic I love to explore in this blog is training and facilitation skills, tips and tricks, I thought it was fitting to devote the second “summer break” edition to that very topic.

Here, ranked in order of popularity (according to blog metrics) are the top 10 phase(two)learning blog posts for trainers and facilitators. If you like a particular post, please share it!
