No notes for slide
  • Copies of slides on the link on the handout
  • Better, cheaper, faster
  • Note paper
  • 8 hours of a training session and no one can tell me what they have learnt and what they are applying.
  • Learning transfer strategies Our overall purpose is to ensure that there is change in the workplace – that people apply new and improved skills
  • what is standing in the way of us achieving our goal of creating change in the workplaceWe have spent a lot of our budget on the training program. Trainer is a subject matter expert. Workbooks look good – they are even in colour! Lunch was good.
  • In your tables you have 2 minutes to come up with some of the barriers that prevent training from creating changeShout out a number from 1 – 10 – okay now call out 3 things from your table that you saw as obstaclesPrizes
  • We run the cert 4 in FLM. People come back the next day or the next month and we need to revise and refresh and we are left wondering sometimes if they were even in the room – sure it does need post-course reinforcement and a manager to say it and model the behaviour – that is sometimes out of our control. BUT what else could we be doing in the training room to enhance memory?
  • Show of hands
  • Exhausting to be in a foreign country – you can’t screen anything out until we get used to the environment. We go onto ‘auto-pilot’ sometimes. announcements, luggage carriers. How much of this noise is brought to your attention? Not a lot. True, you can hear a general background noise, but not many of us bother to listen to each individual sound. But then a new announcement comes over the public address system - saying your name or maybe your flight. Suddenly your attention is full on. Your RAS is the automatic mechanism inside your brain that brings relevant information to your attention. Your reticular activating system is like a filter between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. It takes instructions from your conscious mind and passes them on to your subconscious. For example, the instruction might be, "listen out for anyone saying my name". There are some interesting points about your reticular activating system that make it an essential tool for achieving goals. Your reticular activating system is like a filter between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. It takes instructions from your conscious mind and passes them on to your subconscious. For example, the instruction might be, "listen out for anyone saying my name".
  • We have 60 seconds – how many tools can people call out. Let’s see if we can get to 20.An example of a learning tool is ‘work in pairs’ ‘use videos’If you shout it out and stand up to shout out.Do we have new items on our ideas and action list? Anyone over 10 items yet? Prize
  • Don’t use the same templates again and againWell done – you have won a potato
  • Keep people guessing and keep the mystery
  • Click of a mouse is not being interactive
  • Just as you thought your role was so vitally important in getting people to be creative and the whole organisation depends on you, read this statistic
