How to Survive The Worst Case Scenarios As A Trainer

President Of TrainSmart, Inc.

When my daughter was ten years old, someone gave her a copy of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook. She decided to keep it in the glove compartment of the car and every day when I was chauffeuring her back and forth to activities; she would read an excerpt. These scenarios included everything from escaping a sinking car to surviving avalanches and knowing how to jump from a speeding motorcycle into a moving car- something I never planned to do.

As varied as the worst-case scenarios are, the one thing they have in common is that survival depends on two things: knowledge and planning. Before you can escape that sinking car, you have to know how to get out of the car. You can choose to keep your windows open when you are driving near water or ice, or you need to have a sharp object in the car to break the glass and your seat belt.

However, knowing that you have to break the glass and escape will not guarantee survival, you have to have the tool to break the window. And that takes planning.

As trainers, every training event has the potential to become a sinking car. The key is to know how to react in the event of a potential disaster and to have the tools to make survival possible.

Here is my list of the top 5 worst-case scenarios for a trainer.
