    Adult Learning:


    My professional life has led me into the adult learning environment. There is no greater joy than helping others to help themselves learn. In addition to actually delivering the training much of what I have personally learned the past decade is due in some part to initially learning it so that I can transfer that knowledge onto others. It is a perpetual life experience that I like to refer to as continuous learning.

    Adult learning is not the same as childhood learning. They are different experiences. Adult students learn differently than children. And likewise teachers of adults must deliver training differently than they would to children.

    Of those many differences the one I find most exciting is that childhood learning comes to an end. Adult learning continues on for a lifetime. And it is that life-long learning experience that I believe must be properly nurtured.

    Below are a few examples of support materials I have created and used in previous adult classes.

    Icon Essentials of Adult Training

    Icon Make A Decision

    Icon The Time of Your Life (Personal Time Management)

    Icon The CEO's New Business Plan (modern adaptation of The Emperor's New Clothes)

    Icon Your Verbal Advantage

    Icon Seize Every Day
