How Would You Describe Your Training Style?

“My training style is more of a facilitator and less of a teacher. I focus a lot on the experiential training method as posted by Professor David Kolb (my teacher at Case Western). I usually work with a consistent, conceptual framework facilitated by powerful experiential learning techniques, business games, role plays, real plays, and creative problem group challenges. To work well with this ‘facilitating style’ demands a very strong prior preparation and huge adjustments to the client’s needs. It is very common that I sit (several times) with the client to ‘co-create” the program with him (together).”

What Do You Like Most About Training?

“I love to facilitate in such a way as to help the people find the answers and insights ‘within’ themselves (they become protagonists on their own learning process). I am very much oriented towards using ‘experiential learning’ techniques … it is actually the backbone of my work. I also am very confident in the knowledge that I have acquired in all the years working with people, teams, and leaders. I am learning all the time … it never stops.”
