Some Yoda Wisdom for Training Managers

When in search for inspiration, I like to turn to the big screen, and when it comes to training, self-empowerment and motivation – the Star Wars franchise is the way to go.

The iconic character of Yoda  is one of the best on-screen trainers of all times, and the epic training scenes in the second movie (“The Empire Strikes Back”) have so much that can be applied on the actual worlds of  L&D and employee training.

This scene, which I chose to share with you here, portrays one of the most important messages we should deliver to a trainee, but also to remember and apply to ourselves.

Always look for inspiration and new ideas in movies, or any other form of art. You’ll be surprised to see how the most unexpected places can spark inspiration…
