By all accounts, the corporate training market in the United States is more than $100 billion, notes Victoria Halsey, Ph.D., vice president of Applied Learning at The Ken Blanchard Companies and author of “Brilliance by Design: Creating Learning Experiences That Connect, Inspire, and ENGAGE” (Berrett-Koehler). Still, she says, according to a workplace survey by the American Psychological Association, just 44 percent of working Americans say they are satisfied with their employer’s training and development opportunities.
“That means it’s time to fix workplace learning and teaching,” Halsey says. But how? “By engaging all learners with a ‘new school’ model—one that rigorously and systematically brings out the innate brilliance in everyone and sets people and businesses up to succeed. Brilliance is not a random act. It’s the result of a conscious and critical intersection between people, content, and design.” Here are the six steps of the new learning model, ENGAGE, that is designed to ensure no learner’s brilliance is left unknown, unnoticed, or untapped:
Step 1: Energize learners.
Step 2: Navigate content.
Step 3: Generate meaning.
Step 4: Apply to the real world.
Step 5: Gauge and celebrate.
Step 6: Extend learning to action.
