Having worked in learning and development for over ten years I've seen a lot of personal development approaches and I have been frustrated by seeing interventions that make everyone feel good on the day but don't produce any lasting change or increase in performance.
Whether you want your people to learn new skills or something bigger like adopting a new way of working, addressing the things that really motivate people to change is fundamental to your success. Everyone has a different motivation for doing what they do and only by making sure we affect people on a personal level as well as a practical one can we get them to embrace a new way of doing things.
The Dive Deeper approach is bespoke. It's about understanding your team and the challenges you face to help you get the results you want. It means every person walks away with learning they can immediately apply to their day to day business challenges and the desire to do exactly that.
The Dive Deeper Approach
Based on your needs
If development activity is going to stick it has to address what is both urgent and important for your particular business. After spending time to carefully understand your business all activity is designed according to your bespoke needs.
Exploration and application
It’s long been known that you can’t change behaviour theoretically. In the age of Google and Youtube acquiring knowledge is easy, the skill is in the application. Learners are given a chance to explore, learn and adapt until they can apply what they know to their personal work challenges.
Active and involved
Humans are naturally social and mobile beings-we are designed to move around and interact. This is how we evolve and develop best. We we're not designed to learn behind a desk, learning needs the right amount of energy to be successful.
By giving learners an opportunity to debate and explore topics together they can create something that otherwise wouldn't have been possible. Having a stake in the learning also means they take ownership for keeping the discussion alive and can hold each other accountable.
Engages the personal and the professional
People change behaviour for their reasons. Development that addresses learners personal motivations as well as the professional ones creates lasting change. This means each person walks away with learning that means something personal to them, keeping it alive long after the event.
Challenge vs support
Only by being stretched and challenged can people undergo transformative change. Learners are given the opportunity to examine their own behaviour in a safe and supportive environment and leave feeling like they have really got the best out of themselves.
