4 Ways to Make Your Message Stick from “The Ten-Minute Trainer”

It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a formal environment like a classroom or an informal one like your own home, whenever you explain something to someone else you hope that they’ll be able to remember what you’ve said. So here are four simple ways to make your message stick.


These four quick strategies are from my book “The Ten-Minute Trainer: 150 Ways to Teach It Quick and Make It Stick.”  With a few slight changes, you can use these activities – and most of the activities described in “The Ten-Minute Trainer” – with anyone you teach, train, instruct, or coach (even your own kids!).

These easy strategies help move information from short-term to long-term memory and they take only a few minutes, at most.

So, to help YOU remember to use these strategies whenever you’re instructing others, I’ve created a free infographic for you to download, print, and post as a reminder. Just click on the link below for this helpful teaching/training aid:
