    • reviewing the session afterwards.
  • Creativity in designing training sessions helps provide quality practices by encouraging participants to:
    • react to game-like situations
    • solve problems
    • make decisions, even if some of their solutions are unorthodox.
  • Richard Bailey’s five commandments are principles based on the science of learning and teaching and can help guide coaching.
