There are a few easy ways to make your new program more effective.
Here are 3 easy reinforcement strategies that you can implement today to create a more impactful training reinforcement program.
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 are engaging the learner and 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.
Create effective feedback loops for both 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.
Reinforcement should always be based on objectives and goals. Without goals, you are only reminding which will significantly decrease the effectiveness of your training.
