According to Malcolm Gladwell, it takes 10,000 hours of concentrated practice to become an expert in any field or skill. In the past, many companies were able to develop new leaders from within, using this principle to provide several carefully crafted years of field experience, stretch assignments and mentoring relationships to build their leadership pipeline.
Your brain dedicates about 25% of its entire processing power to vision, which probably explains why we understand images 60,000 times faster than words or numbers. So why are we filling our training materials with so much text when we can tell the story better in pictures? Social media and news organizations have long recognized…
If you have kept abreast of the literature in the past few years, it is fairly common knowledge that there are not enough people to fill the gaps left by the Baby Boomers as they exit the workforce.
If you could understand what was happening in the brains of your target audience, would you be a more effective trainer, designer, consultant, or leader? Thanks to recent advances in neuroscience, learning and talent development professionals now have an opportunity to alter their approaches to change management, leadership development, training, and instructional design.
The Day Everything Changed: How AI Changed the Way We Learn in 2027.
While science fiction depicts a world where intelligent robots rebel and overthrow their human masters, the more likely scenario is a world where human beings interface with computers, digital assistants and other technologies virtually seamlessly, changing just about everything we know about work today.
In this 60-minute session you will learn how the brain deliberately “forgets” and how you can overcome the forgetting curve through purposeful follow-up and reinforcement after training has taken place. You will walk away with a plan to build value in your learning designs through reinforcement that is grounded in learning science.
Last year, I was honored to join the team for the first Training, Learning and Development Conference (TLDC). This innovative conference is built around learning best practices, so you can come back from the conference refreshed, with new neural pathways already firing from new connections, new insights and the time to absorb and reflect. This…
The role of reflection in learning is well-established and dates back at least to educator/philosopher John Dewey, who said “We do not learn from experience … we learn from reflecting on experience.”
In this webinar we’ll explore the neuroscience of infographics and why they work. You’ll learn a simple step-by-step process for creating your own infographics as well as a list of “dos and don’ts” to ensure that your next infographic is an effective learning tool.
In this workshop, you will learn how to leverage the survival imperative to boost employee engagement, enhance performance and accelerate learning by speaking to the brain in its own language.
