Give me a Break
Many of today's workplaces are hectic, fast paced environments in which people aren't used to sitting still for very long. It's no wonder that eyes quickly glaze over during training sessions if presentations are too long and there isn't a heavy dose of "energizers". We have already devoted one full issue of Spice of the Month to energizers. Now, let's look at breaks, one of the most effective energizers.
First of all, remember that many participants become restless if they sit or concentrate on a passive activity for more than 20 minutes. So, if absolutely must use a passive method of instruction such as a presentation to convey some information (and sometimes there is no way around it) present only what is essential and keep it to 20 minutes. Then, either have an energizer, involve the participants in an exercise that involves active participation or give them a break.
