Learning doesn’t stop when the formal learning ends
Research has shown that we forget an average of 50% of what we learn within 24 hours if we don’t use or practice it. That’s why providing your learners with learning reinforcement and sustainment activities is critical as part of your learning programs. By incorporating sustainment and reinforcement strategies into your leadership development initiatives, you increase learner knowledge retention and motivate learners to implement the training.
Learning designed to maximize retention
At Blanchard, our learning experiences are designed intentionally to create lasting behavior change. Our live training engages participants through rich practice in which they work on their actual tasks and challenges and plan real conversations.
Our online programs include live debrief sessions that you can infuse into your learning experiences that a Blanchard expert or one of your leaders can facilitate. Presented between learning modules, debriefs bring peers together to discuss learnings, share success stories, and practice and reinforce new skills. Social learning activities like this—where people learn with and from each other—are highly effective in sustaining and supporting learning.
