3 Ways to Effectively Reinforce Corporate Training
There are a few easy ways to make your new training program more effective and impactful.
1. Create Friction
- When creating and implementing a reinforcement program, avoid passive learning and create friction in your programs.
- Show, don’t tell. When you show the learner how to complete a task, you're engaging them in creating an active learning environment.
- Let the learner make connections. You don’t have to write a full script for all of your training material. Instead, let the learner make connections that they understand.
- Create social friction. Every learner in your organization will take away different things from your training, so encourage conversation throughout the program.
2. Gather Feedback
- Create effective feedback loops for managers and learners. Give your learners an avenue to voice their opinions and give honest feedback.
- Make sure your managers are consistently following up with trainers and know how to best support your learners. This is crucial to closing the environment gap.
3. Create Reinforcement Objectives
- Reinforcement should always be based on objectives and goals. Without goals, you're only reminding learners about information, which will significantly decrease the effectiveness of your training.
