Pen and Paper Games for Training by Lucy Seifert

Pen and Paper Games by Lucy Seifert Life Coach LondonISBN: 0 566 08299 3 2001

Pictures, graphics, drawing and writing are key elements in the way that we communicate with each other, process information and learn. Original cartoons, clip art, competitions and conundrums are some of the means used to offer an enjoyable and productive experience for trainer and trainee in this book. Lucy Seifert's eclectic treasury of games and activities illustrates how pen and paper and flipchart paper are all valuable tools for learning.

The author has tested these games in a wide range of group training and one-to-one coaching, including assertiveness, customer care, public speaking and working across cultures.

Easy to set up, use and explain, undemanding on resources and technology, these games engage both trainer and trainee by putting the fun into learning.

Troubleshooting for Trainers - by Lucy Seifert and Mary Stacey

Troubleshooting for Trainers by Life Coach Lucy Seifert

ISBN: 0 566 07914 3

What do you do when your client asks you to prepare a half-day course covering every aspect of communication? What do you do when you find yourself arriving two hours late for your time management seminar? How do you deal with the participant who never participates? Or the one who won't stop talking?
For each topic they describe the problem, give examples and present a range of possible solutions. They take the view that there is rarely one 'right answer': choose the response that best fits your own style and circumstances.

Troubleshooting for Trainers is destined to become a standard text for training professionals everywhere.

Understanding Body Language

Understanding Body Language - chapter by Lucy SeifertA Collection of 20 Training Activities - Collaboration of various Authors

Clothes Talk & Busy Body by Lucy Seifert - ISBN: 0 566 08431 7

Our body language and our ability to read the non-verbal signals of those around us develop unconsciously from birth. Non-verbal signals are evidence both of the meaning behind the messages we may be trying to communicate verbally and of our state of mind.

Just as you are able to influence your state of mind with conscious action, so you can learn to consciously develop your skills of reading body language and your (self)awareness of the body language signals that you are conveying, allowing you to change them as appropriate.

This collection of 20 activities is drawn from a wide range of Gower activity manuals. Bringing together exercises that use NLP, observation, mime, coaching, feedback and a number of other techniques, allows us to create a very powerful body language training resource.

We have chosen the activities to allow you to vary the style of your training and to explore as many applications and dimensions of body language as possible. All of the activities are appropriate for general interpersonal skills training. Some of them are useful for particular contexts too, such as interviewing, coaching or negotiating.
