Professional Book Review: Brilliance by Design by Vicki Halsey

brilliance by designBrilliance by Design illustrates how to bring passion, relationship, purpose and success to every learning opportunity. It helps align best intentions with methods and objectives and mobilize passionate learners to get amazing results.

While the book shows how to fire up the synergy between learners and teachers, craft content that sings, create an engage model, it also presents how to bring out the brilliance in the virtual classroom.  It includes free assessment and resources like brilliance by design and do-it-yourself templates.

At a glance, the book is intended for teachers, however, it is also suited to principals, speakers and leaders who want to connect people to what is important to them.

As R. J. Childs of the Southeastern University said in his review:

Whether you are a university professor, kindergarten teacher, motivational speaker or corporate

trainer, the multidimensional ENGAGE Model provides powerful insights on how to craft

meaningful and life-changing learning experiences.


Dr. Vicki Halsey is the Vice President of Applied Learning for The Ken Blanchard Companies and coauthor of Blanchard Legendary Customer Service training program and their award – winning blended e-learning Situational Learning program. She also is the coauthors, with Ken Blanchard and others, of Leading at a Higher Level, as well as The Hamster Revolution and the Hamster Revolution for Meetings (with Mike Song and Tim Burress).
