Module 1: Effective Openings
This 90 minute video module addresses the key components in an effective opening. When given a series of anything (i.e. numbers, letters, objects, etc.), a person will remember with greatest clarity the first in the series. Consequently, the mark of an effective trainer is one who gives careful thought to the crafting of his/her opening.
