Have you ever been on a course which had great content but, after a while, you found it difficult to apply the learning? To tackle the challenge of learning a new behaviour or practice, studies show that the brain has to go through a number of different stages.
Our ‘Learning Mission’ approach is guided by the latest insights from neuroscience research. We know that the brain is highly ‘plastic’ – the brain learns new things (behaviours and practices) and unlearns ‘old’ habits – meaning: people can truly ‘anchor’ new practices and behaviours and make them part of their DNA. Thus, we have worked closely with neuroscience researchers to design our method of learning that make the change of behaviour or attitude more successful and long lasting.
The five stages for learning and behaviour change
Become powerfully aware of the need to change an attitude or behaviour
Without powerful awareness of the need to change you will stay safe – preferring to do what you have always done. An extreme example might be receiving a chronic medical diagnosis that prompts a change of lifestyle. However, we prefer a gentler approach that is accessed through experiential learning linked to specific set of objectives and rooted in your context. Our exceptional deliverers bring their life experience into the room and take learning beyond mere theory.
What specifically do you want to change?
The most powerful question in any process of personal change is defining what you want. Without this clarity any changes will create a flash of early momentum and then die off like a firework. We challenge our clients to answer this question before they progress to the next step. Using micro, social and informal learning we raise awareness, impart knowledge and spark curiosity to support changes in attitudes and behaviours across larger learner populations.
Your support team to make the change
Making changes is easier if you are supported by friends and colleagues along the way. This means asking for and responding to feedback and sharing experiences. The Mission-Hub facilitates this support.
Your repeated actions to make the changes you have defined
Taking action is key to learning. Practising new skills and behaviours and choosing different attitudes in specific situations is crucial for progression. The Mission-Hub has multiple tasks and challenges embedded in each Learning Mission. When combined with live coaching in a Refresher programme increases the chances of behaviours becoming habits.
Habit and Share
Sharing your learning and experience
Teaching others and sharing knowledge and experience closes the learning loop. With the emphasis placed upon micro, informal and social learning the Mission-Hub can coordinate and force-multiply the learning across large learner populations.
