Think of the training room like a rehearsal studio. There should be enough room to move around as a group so that participants can fully immerse themselves in the experience. (Hint: a room with a large boardroom table in the middle is not ideal.)
Learning is not an event it’s an ongoing part of work (and life). Integration of concepts happens over time. To activate this principle, participants are sent a welcome package one week before the course. The package introduces core concepts and includes some reading.
A powerful way to reinforce the learning is to offer post-course coaching. Typically participants crave individual, private support after discovering techniques from one of the programs. Coaching session(s) to help ‘cement’ the learning.
