Map the project out before starting. Have a plan. “Jumping feet first is fastest way to fail.”
Ask many questions. Get to the REAL issue. It may not be a “training” need.(e.g., “will performance be improved/changed with more training?”)
It isn’t about the fancy tools, it is about learner engagement. No one remembers how cool the “Next”button was. They do remember if they thought it was a waste of their time!

Become adept at SoMe. If you do, your mind will be open to new possibilities.Accept SoMe as a valid form of delivery and learning transfer. It just is.
Ask many questions. Often. Don’t assume. Anything. Read back. Iterate to agreement. Know all stakeholders.
Get over your bad self. None of it is about you. It is about the learners. Period.
