We bless God for another Monday through which the works of our hands would be blessed. Learning & Training Special, #LTS continues after our first 3 editions dealt with the need and attitude for training on the side of trainers and trainees.


Trainees have weaknesses. Yeah, they do. But why this topic?! By now, I hope every trainer is willing to Train young ones around and Trainees have been conscientised to accept training by way of necessity and attitude. Refer to Editions 1-3 for more understanding.

Trainees have weaknesses. So trainers need to be patient in handling them. No trainee would get everything right from start to finish during training. Some people are naturally good starters while others are slow starters. A trainee at one point or the other might commit a mistake. So trainers need to bear with their frailties.

The attitude of certain trainers to training makes it a challenge to themselves and their trainers. I have seen certain people who should have trained a lot of people by now but surprisingly have trained just a few all because they see trainees as _slippery_ (having the tendency to spoil things), not hardworking enough, not concerned about the work, not passionate enough and so on and so forth. But the truth is every trainer at one point spoilt something as trainee. And trainees have just started climbing the ladder, so mistakes would certainly occur. This situation is akin to an English Teacher expecting a Basic Two/Three pupil to speak impeccable English when it comes to use of TENSES OF VERBS.

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE Mistakes would surely happen. So trainers of our day should be more accommodating of the mistakes of trainees and in that same time, use the moment to correct them without making it looking like they (trainees) are dumb.

A quote I once saw reads: “Don’t look down on people because they don’t act as good as you cos you, yourself never always acted like this until you knew what you know now” Please read it again.

Once upon a time, my spelling (dictation) was not excellent, so I need to understand the weakness of anyone I try teaching how to spell.

NB: This doesn’t mean Trainees should stay in their weakness forever whilst making no attempt to improve.

#BGIM on a Tuesday #LTS-3 LEARNING and TRAINING Special Edition 3

Due to a few technical and editorial challenges, #BGIM Bless God It’s Monday couldn’t be released yesterday but we thank God for this blessed Tuesday. We continue from where we left off last week. After #LTS 1 & 2 sought to encourage trainers to willingly train trainees by the RELEASE Principle; followed by trainees making themselves trainable, we continue with Edition 3.


The concept of training is that the trainee should be able to acquire all the needed skills and knowledge from his trainer in order for to become ‘independent’ of his trainer in his field of work. In order to achieve this target 🎯 or goal, the trainee has to undergo the FULL course of the training. But in most training especially the informal ones, the full course of the training scheme is not known by the trainee but by the trainer only.

This phenomenon usually worries the trainee. Because trainees always want to quickly finish their training. No Trainee wants to spend till eternity to finish one training course. Because of this, most trainees unlike the boy Samuel in #LTS-2, would want to move out from under the mentorship and leadership of their trainer, Eli the High Priest because as most young trainees would say “I have arrived”. But the sad thing is, getting to identify and hear God’s voice is just the beginning and not enough for you as a trainee Priest/ Prophet. And hence it doesn’t warrant you leaving your trainer.

Remember, the boy Samuel STILL STAYED under the Mentorship and Training of his trainer, Eli until the training had run its full course.

My mum, a seamstress by profession, usually says this thing: “There are certain attire/dresses 👗 that not every seamstress can sew except those who disciplined themselves to undergo the full apprenticeship under their Madam”. And its very true. If you don’t know and go and give such special attire to a seamstress/tailor, he/she would try very hard but finally ‘spoil’ the dress.

This happens because most trainees like Seamstresses in this case can hardly stay for the Full Course of their training. Because at a certain point, trainees realise that there is nothing new their trainer is now teaching. Point of Correction: SEEMINGLY New their trainer is teaching now.

It’s true that there is nothing new your trainer is teaching now. You are not far from right!!! 👌👌 But you see trainees limit training only to the CLEAR CUT transfer of knowledge and skills (hands and mind). But one thing most trainees don’t know is that there are things beyond skills and knowledge to be learnt from your training. They include but not limited to Wisdom in Handling Difficult Situations like Crisis and Difficult Customers, Expansion of Business, Problem Solving Skills, Good Sense of Judgement, Financial Management, How to Detect Fraud amongst so many others.

So if you think you have acquired all the clear-cut skills and knowledge, know today that your _Training is still not COMPLETE_
