ATD Oklahoma Statewide Conference 2019
Friday, October 25 - Morning Workshop - 8:30 a.m - 12:00 p.m.
The Trainer's Trainer, Bob Pike, CPLP Fellow, CSP, CPAE will present Results-Based Creative Learning Strategies: 27 Ways to Get Greater Results from Your Training – Faster, Better, Easier
Module 1. Getting Results from Training: The Performance Solutions Cube – and The Transfer of Training Strategy -- Training is a process, not an event. Most programs are designed without ever considering the business result that is desired.
A. Bob Pike's Performance Solution Cube™ -- Participants will examine 5 performance solutions other than training - and how to have a conversation that focuses on the results to be achieved.
B. Transfer of Training Strategy -- Participants, Managers, and Trainers can all impact the transfer of training. Participants will explore 27 practical strategies for ensuring the transfer of training - and pick specific strategies to apply to their own training programs.
C. Scrap Learning – Training that does not transfer is considered waste – or ‘scrap.’ Participants will explore how Scrap Learning can be measured and reduced using appropriate transfer of training strategies.
Module 2. Getting to the C.O.R.E. of Training - Closers, Openers, Revisiters, and Energizers
A. Most trainers don't close -- they just run out of time. IN this module you'll learn the three tests of an effective close - the Closing ACT -- Action Planning, Celebration, and Tying things together. Throughout the program at least a dozen different ways to close will be modeled and you'll have the opportunity to adapt these to your own training programs.
B. Openers -- Most trainers don't open -- they just start dumping content. In this segment you'll experience the three keys of a powerful opener - raising the BAR -- Breaking preoccupation through involvement, Allowing time for networking, and being Relevant to the specific course content. You'll understand the difference between an icebreaker (which you will never use again) and an opener.
Throughout the class you will experience a dozen different ways to close -- and explore how to adapt them for your own content. You'll also identify the one thing 90% of all trainers do to end a program -- that should NEVER be done at the end of the program -- and why this same thing should be done at the BEGINNING of the program!
C. Revisiters -- One of the worst things a trainer can say is "Let's review". Yet Bob estimates that over 70% of the trainers he observes for clients will use that phrase. And it is a signal for participants to tune out because it's content that's already been covered. But just because you've said it, doesn't mean that they've learned it. We know from research that key learning points must be REVISITED at least 6 times to move from short-term memory to long-term memory.
Review is when the instructor says it again, REVISIT is when participants are engaged in the content again. More than 24 ways to revisit content will be modeled -- and you'll adapt at least five for your own training.
D. Energizers -- How do you get class energy back up when it lags -- and it will -- several times a day? Most trainers try talking faster or putting someone on the spot with a question. These don't work. Involvement and movement are the keys.
Module 3. Instructor-led-Participant-centered Models and How to Apply Them
A. The Missing Link in the ADDIE Model -- How People Learn Most of our design efforts are focused on the content to be delivered – not the people it will be delivered to. Bob will share his research based on profiling 25,000 people in 14 countries on learning preferences – and how it impacts our training designs. You’ll experience 3 scales – and the differences between 1. Participative Learners and Reflective Learners. 2. Practical Learners versus Informative Learners. And 3. Structured Learners and General Learners.
They just run out of time. In this module you'll learn the three tests of an effective close - the Closing ACT -- Action Planning, Celebration, and Tying things together. Throughout the program at least a dozen different ways to close will be modeled and you'll have the opportunity to adapt these to your own training programs.
