This is the best train-the-trainer book I have found that bridges the gap between "I'm comfortable with my own training style" and "I can expand my training style to accommodate my learners' needs." The variety of strategies offered to support four different instructor styles is a generous gift to content experts who need examples of specific activities they can use in their training.

Whether you are new to training and facilitation or have years of experience, Teach With Style contains highly effective and practical activities for working with adult learners.
