I’m currently designing training for trainers around creating energy in the training room which has taken me to the possibly obvious question…
What do we mean when we say ‘energy’?
So far I’ve considered:
Emotional energy – Experiencing both positive and negative emotions
Physical energy – Moving around, physical activity, making something
Competitive energy – teams, personal challenges, timed tasks
Reflective/thoughtful energy – pondering questions or information
Vocal energy – discussion, debate, voice exercises
Creative energy – designing, creating, building
Please add your comments below. What else is there? Any key categories I’ve missed or do you have specific activities around any of these worth sharing?
Thanks for any replies
