Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance | Secret Trainers Business | Scoop.it

Knowledge plays an important role in the productivity and prosperity of economies, organizations, and individuals. Even so, research on learning has primarily focused on the role of doing (experience) in fostering progress over time. To compare the effectiveness of different sources of learning, the authors take a micro approach and study learning at the individual level. They argue that learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection—that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

5 Things Successful Public Speakers Never Say

5 Things Successful Public Speakers Never Say | Secret Trainers Business | Scoop.it

As speakers and presenters in the business world, we use words every day to close deals, gain funding, earn trust, win approval, and further our cause,” says Darlene Price, president of Well Said, Inc. and author of “Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results.

 

“As a successful speaker, there are certain words and phrases you can always count on to help you connect well with your audience,” she says. For instance, saying “thank you” shows appreciation for your audience’s time and attention. Starting with, “The purpose of this presentation is to…” declares the goal of your talk. And using phrases like “imagine if…” helps your audience visualise your message or solution. “These words and phrases can capture an audience’s attention and hold it,” she says.

Regardless of the industry or setting, effective communicators use language that captivates, motivates, and persuades others. Their choice of words is one of the crucial ways they inspire an audience to believe, buy in, and take action.

Why Great Speakers Are Like Yoda, Not Luke Skywalker

Why Great Speakers Are Like Yoda, Not Luke Skywalker | Secret Trainers Business | Scoop.it

When you have an opportunity to present, you tend to start to processing information from your own perspective. Usually, it’s all about the information you want to give, instead of being about the information the audience wants to receive. You need to spend an enormous amount of time thinking about what the audience wants to receive.  You need to really think through who you’re talking to, and how to make a deep connection with them. Then you need to create content that supports that.

Think: How do I want the audience to change? If they spend an hour with me, how do I want them transformed? Then everything you create needs to support that transformation in them.

Leaders are always growing, developing, thinking, and constantly improving. We do this by be learners ourselves. We read and read- not just reports but articles and blogs that are applicable to our craft. We listen for the sake of listening rather than with intentions of replying, we ask questions and find answers, we mentor others and seek out mentors for our own selves. Leaders give ongoing, rich feedback, we journal and track information, Most importantly good leaders are continuously learning. We practice what we preach.

Designing Learner Centred Training

Designing Learner Centred Training | Secret Trainers Business | Scoop.it
Tania Tytherleigh's insight:

One of the challenges faced by organisations which deliver highly specialised training and qualifications, is how to design training so that it firstly covers all the technical and operational content requirements of the qualifications and the job, and still be interesting and engaging for learners.

 

One of the strategies that works well is to engage learning designers who are trainers and facilitators themselves to design the learning sessions, and have Subject Matter Experts on hand to provide content expertise. Good trainers and facilitators for the most part see learning from the learners perspective, so when we design training materials it’s the learners who are at the forefront of our designs.

 

This is a far more effective approach than engaging content experts to ‘write the manuals’.

 

So what are some of the strategies for learner centred training?

Firstly you need to remember there are 3 questions that learners will always ask when presented with new material:

What is this?Why is this important for me?How will I use it (on the job)?

 

And the key to answering each of the questions is to keep it simple.

 

Learners in workplaces don’t want to be impressed with our academic prowess and our ability to deliver a thesis on the content. They simply need it presented to them in the simplest, most easily understood and useful way. We need to include practical, on the job examples, rather than theoretical speculations, continuously relating the theory back to what they need for the jobs they do or will be doing. Assessments also need to be designed with this in mind.

Another successful strategy when designing learner centred training is to incorporate as many alternative presentation aids as possible.

 

You can do this by:

trawling sites like You Tube for video clips related to your topicsfinding people who speak on your topic or industry experts to visit the training room and give a live presentationrecording interviews with experts to show during the workshopasking students to do all of the above and more!

 

Designing learner centred training is about thinking seriously about who your learners are, and walking around in their shoes for the day, to really try and understand what inspires them, motivates them, interests them and makes them want to learn. Yes, we could give them a very comprehensive training manual which they should read, but consider instead how to make the content come alive for them!

This is good news for you, especially when it comes to public speaking, which requires getting into the minds (and hearts) of an audience. Neuroscience research offers loads of insights that every business person ought to apply to presentations.

 

Here are eight rules, based upon conversations with Stephen M. Kosslyn, former chair of the psychology department at Harvard University, and what he knows about the brain.
