Learning happens through interaction. And when that interaction happens with a teacher who models presence and skill, gives the learner a map about how to get there, sets up deliberate practice, and enables the group to help the learner in the hot seat—that’s what makes a group member eager for their turn.
We’ve been working with teachers for years, tweaking and rethinking how communication skill transfer can be more like scaffolding and less like cough syrup. Don’t spend time reinventing what we’ve distilled here. You can get your group to do more of the ‘teaching’—and they’ll be more invested.
If you know our work—this section is based on the ToughTalk website. To get our newest versions—take a VitalTalk faculty development workshop.

Great teachers don’t just happen: they reinvent themselves. The best teachers aren’t the ones who know it all—they’re the ones that make you want to learn it all. Sharpen your skills though a VitalTalk course.
