Good Training is Fun. But not all fun training is good.

Training should be fun. It should be fun because learning IS FUN.

There is a certain thrill of excitement that you feel whenever you know you are learning useful, new stuff and making rapid progress.

Making rapid progress feels like fun. So good training is fun.

BUT that does NOT mean that "all fun training is good".

Some trainers and training courses, make the faulty logical leap from thinking: 'All good training is fun, so if I make my training fun, then it will make it good.'

They then concentrate their efforts on making the training day FUN.

They introduce Fun games, and Fun activities, Fun ice breakers, and train by playing games.

But it is important to note that having fun on a training course, does not mean that the training course was good.

You have to ask yourself, "What benefit, other than having a few minutes of fun, did that game leave in the mind of the delegates who played it?"

Did the learners manage to extract any definite principle; or behavioural laws; or practical tips; or rules of thumb; that they could take back to the workplace, and use immediately, to improve the performance of the team?

Because ultimately, the net result of any training should be the application of proper principles that will improve the performance of the team.

Which is kinda fun.

But pure fun, in and of itself, is NOT the purpose of a training course.

So, when on a training day, tell the trainer to put away the Lego and the Plasticine.

And let's learn exactly what we should say and exactly what we should do, to get the best performance from yourself and the rest of the team.

And that would be a FUN thing to do.
