Learning

What I believe about learning 

I have a passionate belief in the value of learning to organisations and individuals. My aim is to help organisations be successful by enriching the lives of their people, and by making learning and change an integral part of everyday working life.

I believe in helping my clients become independent and self-sufficient by working with them to develop learning strategies they can take forward with their own resources, such as blended and work-based learning. I am committed to enabling and encouraging individuals to take responsibility for their own learning and development.

I deal with the realities of organisational life, not with abstract theory, and aim to help participants to understand and influence the complex, semi-formal structures that exist and to expand the boundaries of effective learning within their own organisations.

I aim to create strategies that deliver real change - on the surface levels of developing skills, and on deeper levels, changing attitudes and cultures, and challenging the boundaries of accepted thinking.

When coaching groups and teams, we may create a 'gallery' display of their visualised work. I also enable 'constellation' activities for groups to model actual relationships and contexts at work, so that everyone gains an insight to what is really happening and what needs action.

 Learning Style

I bring some of the best of current adult learning techniques and tools to accelerate learning and retention are used, so that we learn by doing.

You will learn through practical examples, best practice, relevant stories, etc that are both thought-provoking and stretching.

I encourage mind-mapping and other creative tools to serve as memory aids.

Individuals can connect their learning and ideas to their jobs through personal action plans. This process aids the transfer and evaluation of learning back on the job.

By describing the issues they face at work, you then work through these in a confidential and safe space. This process helps to ground the learning in reality and provides for easy application and transfer back to work.
