The planes in question are those planes that have two turbines at the front, left and right. Those two turbines help fly the plane carefully, efficiently and effectively to its destination.
Flying a plane I am reliably informed, is possible with only one turbine. However, I am told this can be quite precarious and should not be taken lightly. Is not particularly effective or efficient and does sound quite scary. You do get where you’re going, it is a little bit more sluggish and quite stressful for everybody involved.
In training the two turbines are trainers style on the one hand and training design on the other hand. Because basically anybody can call himself a trainer, with or without proper training, and some of those who do have great personalities and an intuitive training style this can lead to people focusing a little too much and relying a little too strongly on their trainer style. Everybody has one and good trainers know what works for them, how they establish wavelength to the audience etc.
Outstanding trainers also rely on the second turbine: design competence. They’re able to take any idea for new training from the first thought through analysing the objectives from the trainer, client and a learner point of view to analysing the audience of participants, their backgrounds and their needs to go onto design training by storyboarding, refining, finalizing, developing exercises with good briefing and debriefing questions to then let the whole thing flow into the final finish concept. If you have that concept, it then becomes easy to be flexible with it and make it fit the needs of your learners.
If you don’t have that concept and that design competence it can leads to you over relying on your personal trainer style rather than on balancing style with structure.
