    You’ll just find yourself being invited to provide advice and suggestions at early stages in the strategy-setting process. Trust is very important in our lives. As children we put our trust in our parents. As we grew we learned to make decisions regarding when we should trust and when we should be more circumspect. When we start a new job or project we spend time figuring out who we can turn to for advice, who we can trust, and whose advice we need to double-check. So, trust is probably at the forefront of our thinking most days. think we're all aware of that. The difference is this.

    [Providers] Two Opposite But Important Elements of Learning
    Games can provide opportunities to practice skills and performing tasks but games aren’t required, many learning tasks can be practiced and should be practiced. There are two elements of learning that seem almost opposite, yet, each contribute immeasurably to the ability of a person to learn. Without these two elements, a person does not learn as deeply as they could. When designing a learning intervention, you need to design both high levels of activity as well as quiet times for reflection. Interactivity.

Back on the job after training has been completed, performance support systems give learners what they need to know at the exact moment of need. Remember what we discussed in training?
