I’m very honoured to be in the middle of doing some Training of Trainers for UNDP Somalia. I’m also very sobered, considering the recent attack on the UN compound in Mogadishu.
It’s made me think about watching your back as a trainer.
That of course can mean many things – from personal safety to psychological safety of participants, from being aware of how to include diverse participants in your training delivery and design to taking care of yourself as a trainer so you can care for your participants.
Running a company that’s both a training & entertainment company, I’ve learned the benefits & value of humour (Rock.Paper.Scissors’ form of entertainment is improv comedy). There’s nothing like hanging out & working with professional comedians to teach you that.
So with great care & great attention to ‘back watching’ I give you the following kitten as an example of what can happen when you get distracted don’t watch your back.
