The purpose of training is the hands-on real life example based experience that can exemplify the bookish definitions and other attributes of knowledge. So one of the most crucial and must do things for a trainer is to exemplify with lively examples and attractive story telling. To let the trainees better attend the training with more concentration it is one of the must do things for a trainer of any disciplines.

Once you appreciate someone rightly or for proper reason, automatically he befriends you, if not in the body language at least in the gleams in his or her eyes. But know how to appreciate, what to appreciate at what moment and also how to discern the best effects of your appreciation in him and her. Once you befriended the whole training room or session participants, you will receive maximum level of participation from the trainers.
