ASTDps: August 2014 Chapter Meeting
Obtain Commitment to Learning Easily: Master the Art of Paradigm Shifting
If you never face resistance to your training you can skip this meeting-THE REST OF US ARE SIGNING UP!!!
Have you ever had the opportunity to create and facilitate a training program for an audience that you KNOW will be opposed to the material? It can be challenging, and way too easy to end up spending more time working through their resistance than on the material itself. That’s where Paradigm Shifters come in.
“People believe their own data.” Influential thought leader Bob Pike (bobpikegroup.com) inspired me with this famous quote. Paradigm Shifters, also referred to as awareness activities or perception checks, are stories, exercises, case studies, quizzes, jokes-any type of activity that allows participants to experience why the training material is valid and relevant, so that they express why they should learn it.
Paradigm shifters are especially important to those of us who facilitate learning in leadership and interpersonal skills, as we are working to modify behaviors based on long-standing habits, values, and core values.
This program will demonstrate the power of paradigm shifters, offer multiple examples, and teach participants to create and facilitate their own.
Upon program completion, participants will be able to:
• Explain what paradigm shifters are and why they work.
• Design paradigm shifters for their current training program(s).
• Facilitate paradigm shifters for their current training program(s).
