This was my post on Trainers Forum among others on 5 mar 2006. Its as relevant now (perhaps more) as it was then.
I will like to know if we have like minded trainers / facilitators who will like to express their views.

Subject: [TrainersNetwork-OMI] CARE AND SHARE
We are all a group of well meaning and enthusiastic people who have joined hands to benefit each other and benefit from each other. Its all about CARE and SHARE.
I had a requirement of training material for a workshop I was to conduct. I sent out a mail requesting for material. I was amazed at the response!! I did not expect people to part with their material. Lots of them keep it as a closely guarded secret. Some of them treat training material as a Nuclear formula, which if leaked, would set the earth on a path of destruction.
Yet, most of the material we are talking about is the one we gather from the internet, from friends, paper clippings and such sources. They are not our intellectual property. Yet ppl dont want to share.
I am not advocating sharing of material that is ur own innovative creation. (Though I will do even that selectively.) Something which is your original concept or thought. But if we can share what we pick up from here and there, we will ALL BENEFIT A LOT.
I am a lot richer in terms of training material now than I was say two months ago. Thanks to Yahoo Groups !! Lets say CHEERS !!!!
My humble request. Lets all be a little more open to sharing. We will all gain a lot.
I will be posting an excel sheet soon, giving all I have. All those who want it, can ask for it. I will send it.
Lets start a CARE AND SHARE campaign. Something that spreads like wild fire when ppl understand its worth.
My sincere thanks to Phani Challa, Sarabjeet Singh, Radhika G, Allen, Pushpinder, Harvinder, Navaz, Joe, Shobha, Upasana and many others who were so kind to send me useful material. I deeply appreciate their kind gesture.
