Not to know is bad; not to wish to know is worse.
- African Proverb
Well, it has been a long journey. You have been exposed to many ideas about training design, some familiar and some not so familiar. The question is, what happens now? To what extent will you incorporate any of these ideas in your own activities as a trainer?
We cant answer that question. What we can say with confidence is that, as trainers in a changing world, we must get in the flow or get left behind. As Wayne Dyer reminds us, Progress and growth are impossible if you always do things the way youve always done things.
Someone once said that you cant teach anything you havent learned. Learning is an active process: we learn by doing. This principle applies as much to trainers as to their students. So, if you want to master the techniques of training design described in this volume, do something about it. Get out there and design some training!
