Remember college classes?  Sitting in a lectures taking notes?  Remember how engaging these lectures were? 

"Sage on the stage" is how this method of instruction is known.

If you're like most people, a good portion of college lectures were terribly boring and did not fully engage you.

Fast forward to - now - you're a teamwork facilitator (coach, trainer, manager, educator, etc.).  How often do you talk at your audience (lecture at them)?

If you to are applying the "sage on the stage" method of teaching then it's likely your audience is walking away from the experience with much less than you think.

Research shows that your students will learn more if they are actively (as in out of their chair) learning.

"According to the best-evidence synthesis, we found strong evidence of a significant positive relationship between physical activity and academic performance."

LESSON:  To be a more effective teamwork facilitator and fully engage your audience learn how to get people up and moving and learning at the same time.
