What do you wish you learned in teacher training?

A few posts back there was a wonderful article by Beth Montanez titled "Uncertified" which discusses her viewpoint about the Pilates industry and the numerous unqualified trainers that are out there in the world teaching who knows what to clients. You know that sparked some comments! With all the numerous training programs out there and the newbie teachers being released into the wild, it is important to remember that the initial training program is just the tip of the iceberg on a path to being a successful teacher.

So today I propose the question.....What do you wish you learned in teacher training? What skills didn't they teach you that would have made your transition from student to trainer easier?

I find that after 13 years I am always learning and growing as a trainer, business owner and a person by sharing ideas with others. I think we grow as people by making healthy connections with others in our industry.
