We've known for a long time that simply attending a training course is not enough to make a difference at work. Participants need to start the learning cycle before attending a workshop, and they also need to be supported after a workshop to apply what they've learned.
We know that if the support isn’t there for participants to apply what they’ve learned, there is very little chance of any good outcome from the investment in training. And turning learning into action is what training should be about – not just about a pleasant experience at the workshop, a nice lunch and the chance to escape from the workplace.
Our way of connecting all the dots is what we call the PEAR approach:
With this holistic approach to the delivery of training, we know that participants have the best chance of applying what they’ve learned and for developing a reflective practice habit that is important for their on-going development.
This approach in turn provides the best chance of positive outcomes for organisations who invest in training, particularly when it is customised and delivered in-house with clearly established business outcomes up front.
