  3. The Visual Machine®: Let the Machine Speak & Machine Lubrication/Visual & Effective

Visual Thinking Inc training session.In addition, we offer Train-The-Trainer (TTT) sequences for most of our nine tracks.

During 3-5 days of intensive instruction, trainers-in-the-making discover the key elements for effective content delivery, and special tools and techniques for making training and deployment outcomes more successful. Nearly all the learning is hands-on at a host site, often working directly with the organizational group that is the focus of the training outcomes.

TTT group size is limited to 14 active participants (observers are permitted).

Dr. Galsworth leads all of our TTT sequences. Contact us for more details.
