- Being highly active: A trainer cannot run bereft of energy. No monotony, even that of work, can hit him hard and even if it does, in reality that should not affect the performance. Extraordinary skills should be applied and the entire team should be motivated to do so. Rest and breaks should be carefully considered. While there is genuinely no room for slackness the focus should be on being proactive always. Indulge into systematic session plans with divided targets which shall in turn make the task seem short and compact making it more achievable.
- Positive attitude: A trainer must have the attitude of a winner. Having a positive attitude that will motivate all your team members to work towards the common goal is critical. The attitude of a winner along with a constant focus on your training goals are always a sure way to success.

A trainer must ensure that the training is driven towards a concrete and desired outcome. Be mentally prepared for all the questions and do not be over fed by appreciations.
- Focus on short sessions: It is always wise enough to divide a large training intervention and set up shorter sessions that will easier to look at. Divide the time for each session set. This will make the work more feasible and allotting individual time for each will make more achievable. However, it is important to be strict with these short goals. Invest your energies in a systematic manner.
- Create a healthy training atmosphere: The outcome of any task depends to a huge extent on the ambience of the place. A healthy atmosphere refers to a helpful and innovative set of minds among every member present in a team.

No learning can happen in a threatening environment and it is the most critical job of the trainer to create a safe environment in the training room.
- Identify the skills: Not every member is designated only to the skill he is working on. The trainer must be able enough to find out the skills of all to ensure success of the training intervention.
- Sharpen the skills: Unused skills often become dull if not taken proper care of it. Sharpening skills through continued learning is important. Trainers must invest in their own learning, related to their area of expertise, to ensure they are on top of things and latest developments.
