From the Back Cover:

Your mission: to get a room full of participants ready to take on new challenges and responsibilities. The session is ready to begin. Are you prepared? How do you break the ice? Have you chosen the right exercises? What if no one’s speaking up? How will you handle participants who are unruly or disengaged?

And what’s that you say? You’ve never done it before?

Today, you as a trainer are faced with more choices than ever to facilitate learning. You’re dealing with a highly diverse workforce, with a mixture of younger and older workers, all of whom respond and learn differently. And with the latest possibilities made available by technology and e-learning, the possibilities are virtually endless.
