  1. Returning to the training room - the two questions to ask to determine if you're ready

    Returning to the training room - the two questions to ask to determine if you're ready                                 It seems that, after several apparent false-starts, a great number of us are returning to predominantly face-to-face learning events. This is both welcome and long-anticipated- even those most committed to virtual learning... Read more...
  2. Facilitators in new hybrid workspaces - are they our next generation's leaders?

    Facilitators in new hybrid workspaces - are they our next generation's leaders? I took some valuable time out last week to think about how best I can contribute to RSVP Design’s work, and that period of reflection led to some interesting insights about the new(?) skills that leaders are going to need to deploy if they are to continue to be effective. And, by implication, how we develop candidates into leadership roles. My ... Read more...
  3. How to Solve Motivation Problems - Insert Trust into the Equation

    How to Solve Motivation Problems -  Insert Trust into the Equation                               In recent weeks I’ve had some pretty low-energy conversations with people working in organisations. It could be the political climate, it could be the time of year, it could be the weather… I’m not going to try to interpret ... Read more...
  4. New Year - New shoes, New tools or both?

    New Year - New shoes, New tools or both?                         I’m a runner. Being a runner is a key element of my identity, it’s been part of who I am for as long as I can remember and it’s never been more important than it has over the past couple of years. No matter what restrictions we’ve lived under, no... Read more...
  5. How to use experiential activities for the 50% of learning that is vital to efficient performance, but can't be done 'in the workflow'

    How to use experiential activities for the 50% of learning that is vital to efficient performance, but can't be done 'in the workflow' This is the third in a series of linked pieces about the deployment of Experiential Learning “in the workflow”. In the previous two pieces I’ve demonstrated why this is not a viable proposition: If it’s happening in a way that fits any definition of ‘learning in the workflow’ it isn’t experiential learning. If it fits any ... Read more...
  6. Delivering Authentic Experiential Learning “In the Workflow” - Is It Even Possible?

    Delivering Authentic Experiential Learning “In the Workflow” - Is It Even Possible? In our October blog I talked about the features that allow us to recognise whether a learning environment can authentically be recognised as Experiential Learning. This definition largely depends on whether we can recognise David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle (ELT) as the core model being utilised. “The ELT is usually represented as a ... Read more...
  7. Revisiting a definition of Experiential Learning in a world of restricted delivery

    Revisiting a definition of Experiential Learning in a world of restricted delivery It’s clear that the past couple of years have been a massive challenge to anybody tasked with delivering learning to either adults or young people. To those of us who have a belief in, and commitment to, experiential learning, this challenge has been both interesting and somewhat divisive. There are practitioners who have become even more ...

  8. Facilitating or Learning - are you ready to get back in the training room?

    Facilitating or Learning - are you ready to get back in the training room? Stepping out of a training room, be it physical or virtual, with a sense that you’ve left a group of learners both happy and inspired is a great feeling, one of the professional highs that make working as a facilitator such a buzz.  What’s also a buzz is leaving a training room with the sense that you’ve offered your learners a big ...

  9. Bold gestures that support learning - interesting research for facilitators

    Bold gestures that support learning - interesting research for facilitators I’m a great one for using my hands when I’m trying to communicate, and I find that the more self-conscious I get about this trait the poorer my communication gets. I was aware of this, but hadn’t given it too much thought until I recognised that one of the negative effects of the past 18 months is the extent to which the many hours of Zoom ... Read more...
  10. Are you Prepared for Post-COVID facilitation - will it be the same but different?

    Are you Prepared for Post-COVID facilitation - will it be the same but different?                               The prospect of returning to face to face facilitation has been a dominant subject in the training conversations I’ve had recently. It’s a rich subject for debate due to the broad range of opinion and attitude amongst those ... Read more...
