Training Reinforcement : The 7 Principles to Create Measurable Behavior Change and Make Learning Stick
about this item
A proven framework to fill the gap between "knowing" and "doing"
Training Reinforcement offers expert guidance for more effective training outcomes. Last year, US companies spent over $165 Billon on training; while many training programs themselves provide valuable skills and concepts, even the best-designed programs are ineffective because the learned behaviors are not reinforced. Without reinforcement, learned information gets shuffled to the back of the mind in the "nice to know" file, never again to see the light of day. This book bridges the canyon between learning and doing by providing solid reinforcement strategies. Written by a former Olympic athlete and corporate training guru, this methodology works with human behavior rather than against it; you'll learn where traditional training methods fail, and how to fill those gaps with proven techniques that help training "stick."
There's a difference between "telling" and "teaching," and that difference is reinforcement. Learned skills and behaviors cannot be truly effective until they are engrained, and they can only become engrained through use, encouragement, and measureable progress. This book provides a robust reinforcement framework that adds long-term value to any training program.
