Using Activities to Make Training Fun

Using Activ­i­ties to Make Train­ing Fun

Most peo­ple have been at a party or some other social occa­sion where some­one has told an inap­pro­pri­ate joke and ruined the mood (at least tem­porar­ily). Like­wise, we’ve all been some­where where the class clown is able to lighten the mood and help peo­ple have fun. The good news is that humor can help you make your train­ing ses­sions just as engag­ing as those fun social occa­sions. Even bet­ter, you don’t need to be the class clown or an award win­ning come­dian to do it.

Let’s Have Some Fun

Buy-​in!
Dur­ing this ses­sion, we will dis­cuss three things that can help the par­tic­i­pants see the value of train­ing games. We will also dis­cuss some great game expe­ri­ences and some games that flopped, and what we can take away from these lessons.

When Games Go Badly
Despite our best inten­tions and plan­ning, some­times a game won’t work. We will dis­cuss how to antic­i­pate, avoid, and deal with problems.

Using Humor in Train­ing
