5 Tips for making Learning stick!!

It’s Learning at Work Week and all week we are tweeting tips for making learning stick...

Here is our “sticky learning” list... 

  1. Make sure any actions from a training or coaching session are specific and have clear timescales on them (not asap!!) – otherwise they drift.
  2. Set up a means of reminding yourself what you will do differently after any training or coaching eg a regular reminder on your phone.
  3. Debrief your new learning with someone else – your manager or colleagues – talking through what you will do with someone else helps to make it reality.
  4. Reward yourself for your successes when you try new skills or new ways of doing things.
  5. Focus on changing one thing at a time – rather than lots in one go. Implement one new thing, make it a habit and then move to the next.

And for more ideas to get your team motivated to learn something new see our blog on the many learning opportunities around us at work or take a look at our management, personal and team pages.

I thrive on seeing people do things they didn’t think they could do! I draw on my management and leadership experience from working in senior positions in the Metropolitan Police Service, running Focal Point since 2002 and working across all three sectors in the widest variety of environments. Because we rarely learn things first time, we believe it is vital to provide support before, during and after the events we run, in order to get the best from them. Time and time again people have told us how the chance to review their learning and to have their actions reinforced has really helped cement new ways of doing things. This is what has then made the difference that they and we are looking for. I am a fellow of the CIPD and when I am not working with clients I can be seen on the golf courses of Hampshire.
