Your comfort zone

Tuesday, 22 November 2016 by

Distribute among participants sheets of paper with a large circle drawn in the center. Asks each to draw their comfort zone. What does that mean? Well, within the circle they will draw those things that feel comfortable doing and outside the circle those things that they feel unable to do or makes them feel uncomfortable.

Just for fun

Although we create a safe environment in class in which participants feel comfortable to express themselves, share concerns and even make mistakes, participants feel closer to the trainer or facilitator during the breaks. Try to lunch with participants or spend some time during the breaks chatting to them. It is true that breaks are important

An APP

Tuesday, 18 October 2016 by

Have you ever thought of developing an APP for your workers? Right now most of us have smartphones that allow us not only call and use internet but also help us play and learn. You can design an application in which workers can play while learning about their labor rights and obligations and even develop

Cause and effect

We often forget to say how productivity and can be improved. To who? To everyone. We forget to tell both managers and workers. “When I have a wound I do my job worse” or “When I’m frustrated my mind is not at work”. When designing posters and infographics on labour rights or health and safety,

The people with best management skills are not always the ones who are promoted. Not all supervisors know how to communicate with their employees, resolve conflicts, motivate them, etc. Why don’t you ask supervisors to draft the “Decalogue of the good supervisor”? As they write it, they will reflect over the qualities they should practice

I see it better now

Lately I refuse to use PowerPoints presentations. What I do is prepare a class through drawings. I use sheets of flipchart paper, to illustrate the key concepts we will cover in class and hang in them around the room before participants arrive. As they enter through the door they are surprised to see all walls

Who are you?

Do you like costume parties? We can turn a class into one, a theme party! Ask participants to come dressed up with something related to the subject to be treated in class. If Count Dracula comes to a class on how to rationalise working hours, or a little girl with braids to speak on equality

My work is like …

We always say that metaphors help express feelings, understand concepts, visualize situations, ultimately, that they are very useful in training environments. Another class activity could be to ask participants to define their work with a metaphor. For example: “My work is like carrying chains on my feet”; “My work makes me fly above the mountains”

Not another test!

Tuesday, 29 March 2016 by

Tests bore all of us, but we love acting. Ask participants to prepare a short play in relation to what they have learned in class. You will have the opportunity to see what they have learned; they will review all the material and have fun at the same time. Do not forget that with the

Infographics

Tuesday, 22 March 2016 by

Infographics are everywhere now, and I actually think it’s a great trend. They are a visual and attractive way to show information that if presented simply through a text can be too dense or unintelligible. Designing specific infographics on labor rights can be very useful to raise awareness of the need of respect, its causes,
