Beyond Information Transfer: Can training be transformational?
Presented by John Losey
“Just tell me what I need to do.” “We need to get them producing as soon as possible.” “We can’t afford that much downtime for training.” These demands from our clients guide how we design and develop training programs. Our solution, too often, is cutting important, foundational learning elements and keeping urgent data and task content. Turning our training programs into little more than data-transfer and long to-do lists. Can we design training programs that offer immediate application without losing the possibility of continuous development and long-term transformation?
Together we will explore three intended impacts we can have on our participants. We will discuss how an “organizational learning ecosystem” perspective and intrinsic v extrinsic motivation can increase the likelihood of transformational learning. You will walk away with simple, practical ideas on how to maintain transformational elements to your program while still meeting your client’s needs.
