Making the Learning Stick
Hopefully the term ‘Sticky Learning ®’ has intrigued you, whilst you probably guessed a sense of what it is about. In short Sticky Learning ® is our own unique method that we have developed to help Learners Realise more of what they have learnt, be able to Recall more of what they have learnt, and Retain more of what they have learnt. In 2016 we further upgraded this unique training method to include habits formation as a big part of helping Learners to use more of what they have learnt. This is good for our clients because it means that the money they spend with us is better invested than with other training providers because the learning is used for longer.
Training Course Duration
At MBM we no longer offer 1 day courses due to their limited effect. Our Sticky Learning ® unique training method enables Learners to learn more, learn more quickly, and learn more easily. Sticky Learning ® is a key part of the 6 month training course consisting of pre-work, Learning To Learn 1/2 day training course, a Foundation 1 day training course, and an Advanced 1 day training course (6 months after the Foundation training course). In between the Foundation training course and the Advanced training course, the Learner will be challenged to complete ‘Sticky Pieces’, which appeals to the 70:20:10 learning model. These are desk based activities that help the Learner to change their behaviour long term by identifying a habit that they wish to adopt to embed the new skill. The Learner is also given:
Training Course World Class Tutor for Effective Presentation Skills
Your tutor for the Presentation Skills training course is Sally Booth. Sally remains a retailer at heart, having worked for 14 years with one of the big four UK supermarkets, both as a Line Manager and within the Training function, she has practiced what she preaches regarding People Development. Sally is passionate about bringing learning to life and enables participants to really experience a new skill and work on it live in the room so that they can see it, hear it, think it and feel it.
Learners Per Course in the Presentation Skills Course
8 to 12 Learners because this drives enough discussion between the learners to explore the skill well, whilst not too many that any one learner gets ‘lost’ in the debate. Ideally 8 because we have found that on this particular training course, due to the nature of presenting, fewer Learners get much more from the training course. If you do not have 8 to 12 people please checkout our 121 Executive Coaching, which can help just you to learn this skill.
Presentation Skills Course – Measuring Return on Investment
There are many evaluation methods for training, each trying to find the holy grail of return on investment. We use Donald Kirkpatrick’s four level training evaluation model as a base because it has stood the test of time, since 1953. Level 1: Reaction: How did the Learners react to the training? Level 2: Learning: How much learning did the Learners get? Level 3: Behaviour: How much have the Learners used the learning? Level 4: Results: How much effect did the Learner’s learning have on performance? Few training providers measure the return on investment beyond the level 1 reaction. We have added one further level: Level 5: Sponsor: How much did we achieve the sponsor’s objectives? Read more about our 5 level evaluation tool and see an example report – ‘Chain of Evidence’.
Presentation Skills Training – Learning Needs to be Intriguing
To this end of ‘Learning needs to be intriguing’ we name each one of our training courses after a relevant film and we’ll make reference to this on the course. For our Presentation Skills training course we chose ‘The King’s Speech‘ because one of the most challenging parts of presenting effectively is to have the confidence to present effectively. This film from 2010, rated R, stars Colin Firth who plays King George VI, who hires a speech therapist to cope with a stammer.
