Help Retain Knowledge: Increase Engagement to Achieve Learning

Add to calendar

Ever walk out of a meeting or training class struggling to remember what was just discussed? Or be annoyed that people request information that you’ve already shared? You are not alone! Leaders struggle with how to create an engaging environment that results in high collaboration and learning. Unfortunately, most leaders start off with the disadvantage of being exposed to practices that recent brain science has proven to be ineffective, such as standing up front in the room and talking with slides for an hour instead of engaging people every 10–20 minutes. In an agile environment, learning is (almost) everything. Join Tricia Broderick to challenge common facilitating and training conventions that will dramatically increase engagement and learning retention. Discover Sharon Bowman’s Training from the BACK of the Room four-step approach to addressing frequent status quo deliveries, such as failing to immediately connect attendees with the topic. Come experience first-hand learning within learning to leverage six trumps that have a significant impact. Leave with a raised bar of expectations and a variety of tools aimed at helping people engage to learn best. Oh, and it will be FUN!
