Many subject matter experts are just that, subject matter experts--not experts in the art of teaching, facilitating, or designing. Thousands of authors, trainers, and speakers have great content, but they lack the skills required to convey their content in a way that inspires learners to unleash their brilliance and move the learning to practice.. They often spend 70% of their time on WHAT they are going to teach, and 30% of their time on HOW, when they should be spending 30% on WHAT, and 70% on HOW. Their instructional techniques often are at odds with their message of inclusivity, eagerness for people to learn, and hopes that their content will change lives and organizations. “Brilliance by Design” outlines how to design learning interactions (such as meetings and workshops) that enable people to do their best thinking. Using the tested, signature ENGAGE model, it helps anyone who brings people together for the purpose of learning, problem-solving, or innovating to develop a clear, high-impact training design that unleashes brilliance. It presents a model that enables teachers to analyze learner and teacher needs, create objectives that meet those needs, and incorporate interactive tools that “fire ‘em up,” ensuring all key outcomes are met. To help readers unleash the brilliance in others, this book provides the structure, tools, language, and models needed to create optimal learning experiences from their ideas, practices, models and books. In learning these techniques, readers will achieve powerful outcomes, building communities of learners who share best practices and communicate at a deep and profound level while doing real work.

Active Training has become a classic book in the field of training and development and a standard text on graduate-level HRD programs. It turned instructional design on its head by shifting the emphasis away from the instructor and on to the learner.

Revisions include updated workplace examples, new and revised templates and worksheets, updated theory and research sections, and expanded guidelines on evaluating and training ROI, extending the value of training programs, and managing Active Training programs to show state-of-the art applications. What will continue to set these books apart is the relevance of dozens of new examples, the wisdom and impact of fresh practical tips, and the rigor and expertise supporting dozens of exercises and techniques.
