    We all grew up with knowing the phrase "Reading is FUN-damental". Our parents and teachers used the phrase to get us excited about reading and opening our minds to new possibilities. Well, now that we are professionals, Reading is STILL Fun-damental. The Las Vegas Library of Learning invites you to join us in reading and discussing "Confessions of a Corporate Trainer" by Jonathan Halls on Wednesday, August 31, 4:00-5:30 p.m. 

    Embrace the Gritty Reality of Training

    Ever watched half your class stomp out on you? Fallen asleep facilitating a creativity workshop? Planned a bulletproof lesson plan then dropped it 10 minutes after you started? Don’t worry—it’s fine to confess.

    If you have faced a surprise in the training room, chances are Jonathan Halls has seen it too. As a result, he doesn’t pretend to be a shiny happy trainer anymore; his 25-plus years of training and facilitating in 25 countries have taught him not to stress over a less-than-flawless class—and helped him focus less on himself and more on letting his learners shine.

    In Confessions of a Corporate Trainer: An Insider Tells All, Jonathan tells relatable and charming stories of what corporate training is really about, drawing from his highly rated train-the-trainer workshops and hundreds of honest conversations with like-minded trainers.

    He recounts the curve ball he was thrown midway through a change management workshop in Zagreb, Croatia—and how it showed him the futility of overplanning. He shares the time a fire alarm disrupted a training program he led in Washington, D.C., and how he embraced the interruption. And he reflects on what conspires to knock trainers off their game (psst: demanding clients, heavy workloads, and frequent travel are only a few of the culprits).

    Discover the gritty reality of training. Confessions of a Corporate Trainer will entertain you, challenge you, and remind you why you as a trainer are so important in today’s workplace.

    Confessions of a Corporate Trainer is the recipient of a Gold Star Award from the Nonfiction Authors Association Book Awards Program.
