Action based affordable online training
Have you done training before and discovered that little has stuck?
A Quest approach will help bring the behaviour changes you’re really seeking. In turn your organisation will achieve and sustain key results necessary for business prosperity.
Continuous good results are obtained through people who trust their leaders. Trust is built with teaspoons and destroyed with shovels. (Richard De Crespigny). So, as a leader, how do you consciously, deliberately, and continuously build trust?
There are many answers to this question but perhaps it is most important to apply simple concepts well. That’s exactly the opportunity this Building Trust Quest provides you.
Create lasting behaviour change
Our Quests system provides you affordable online training where learners enhance the value of the training they receive by acting quickly on what they’ve learned (through practice) whilst being supported by an experienced coach.
Such a model brings lasting behaviour change.
According to the AFT (Action, Feedback, Trigger) learning model, around which each Quest is built, the first step of an effective learning experience is to ensure learners take action. The learning arising, through reflection and correction, leads into the next action, and so on.
Each activity is a logical springboard to the next.
Activity based learning increases 24 hour knowledge retention to 75% as opposed to just 5% from a lecture.*
Interestingly this goes to 90% if we then teach others.
* Reference: Andrew Fuller
Every learner in every Quest has a designated coach (mentor), one of us. At specific points learners are required to send activity outputs to their coach. The coach provides feedback and may ask questions. Of course the coach answers any questions or concerns throughout.
Every activity has an estimated time associated with it. (Thus every level has a time estimate available to it, as does the whole Quest.) The time estimate permits daily priority planning by the learner.
Your staff need to learn fundamental and new skills (as the world is changing and with it are new challenges). However, most traditional learning techniques don’t work well as they are not supported with a follow-up routine. Worst of all they can be a waste of time for both the participants and the businesses who ultimately pay both the fee and for the participants’ time.
Our coaches provide feedback as you learn by doing and hone your new skills.
Consider a blended learning program.
Increase people interaction and learning from other participants in your organisation through a blended program.
We logically group existing Quest activities into learning chunks. Each upcoming chunk is previewed live on line as a group with the coach. Then after doing the chunk it is collectively reviewed live on line promoting discussion and learning, again facilitated by the coach.
Our blended Quests are designed for groups of four people maximum.
One thing we’ve seemed to learn through the COVID pandemic is while many things can be achieved ‘without disturbance’, depth in learning comes from discussion, participation and collaboration.
Consequently we have gone a step further by combining the Action Feedback Trigger based Activities within our Quests with face to face or live online sessions.
First we logically ‘group’ the Activities. We then start with an introduction to the Quest (everyone together) where expectations are set with respect to outcomes and time frame. The first group of Activities are previewed. The participants then complete them just like any other Quest.
In the next session we come back together, review and discuss particulars of what’s been achieved, preview the next set, and so on. Some Activities are completed during the live sessions. Our job throughout is to facilitate discussion.
What I got most from this was we are all following the same Activities but in different areas of operations and I benefited a lot from discussing all our responses together.
