The Essentials Mix: The Collusion of Mediocrity and how it helped me become a better facilitator

Way back in 2015, in only the second episode of this Trainer Tools podcast, I talked to Paul Levy about his “Collusion of Mediocrity” concept and how it challenges us as facilitators.

It’s one of those podcasts that really impacted me and made me a better facilitator, and so I am re-releasing it here with a bit of additional up-to-date commentary, because I think it grows in value with repetition.

Over the next couple of months the TT podcasts will be a bit more random as I take a break for the summer.

I also wrote about this on TrainingZone website: How you measure training success might be stopping you from succeeding.
