At Mindmarker, we coach clients on how to utilize our proven methodology to drive behavior change and increase effectiveness. Check out these three best practices to increase the effectiveness of your training reinforcement program:
There are 3 habits highly successful organizations use to create accountability:
The first is clear, empirical objectives and milestones. Your reinforcement program should include well-defined objectives and milestones. This allows the organization to evaluate their success based on empirical data.
A dedicated budget. This is the key to a successful reinforcement program. Make it a habit to include a budget that is specific to reinforcement.
Dedicated tools and resources. To create the most effective reinforcement program, organizations should provide tools that are accessible across the organization, like a microlearning platform that centralizes training for learners.
Training learners and following up with a short test isn't as effective as training with a full-scale reinforcement program.
Adapt training to the changing learning environment by using new, innovative techniques to increase your return on investment (ROI).
Although reinforcement program content and timing is structured for the highest engagement possible, it's your responsibility to incentivize reinforcement. Mindmarker programs come standard with reinforcement analytics to help you optimize your programs. Mindmarker's analytical tool allows you check participant status, check reinforcement processes, and measure behavior change. Then, transform the post-training data into actionable intelligence to help make improvements. By utilizing analytics, you ensure continued engagement, reduced drop off rates, and behavior change.
Now it’s time to put these practices to work and implement them in your own reinforcement program! Download our Comprehensive Reinforcement Program Checklist.
