I got a smart-ass email from someone who thinks they know more than they do.
“I thought you were a Trainer. Why do YOU need training? Not as good you wish you were?”
You know, that’s a good question. Most of the serious trainers that know never miss a chance to continue their own education. I dare say the best trainers never stop learning themselves. When you stop learning yourself, you stagnate. Your instruction stagnates. There are some of those trainers out there who think they are so all that, that they wouldn’t dare lower themselves to be a student again. That arrogance isn’t a good thing, not for them and not for their students. Their only remaining value is having a “Name” and students can then brag that they trained with them… because the actual value of that training stagnates with the trainer. I could name names, but I don’t want to start any fights or flame wars or foster any animosity. I’ll just say this, the best in the business know that they need to continually sharpen their swords. Those that don’t, they know who they are. The day I decide to stop learning, that’s the day I stop teaching too.
