Concepts such as: • emotional intelligence • behaviour modification • role modelling • dimensions of procedure and conviviality • expectancy theory • socio-cultural concepts of (service) community • customer service as dynamic 'object' in activity theory • Zen mindfulness all form the basis of training design in different contexts.
