Start with Why
Reinforcement objectives differ from training goals. A training goal focuses on the learner's knowledge on how to do something. With reinforcement, focus shifts toward a more sophisticated model of applying their new skills on the job.
You must determine your reinforcement objectives to design a program that has impact. What do you want learners to gain from the training?
After you determine your objectives, you can start to develop your Mindmarker training reinforcement program. We recommend designing a program using our Comprehensive Reinforcement Program Checklist.
Once you have designed the course program, ask yourself if learners will naturally transition from knowledge retention to application.
We recommend a 21-point approach, where 19-21 Mindmarkers is excellent and 15-18 is very good. Under 10 points is weak and will not reinforce skills.
When learners begin changing their behavior as a result of the reinforcement program, ask them to provide feedback. Building a survey allows learners to reflect upon their experience.
