Creating an Innovative Culture Through Leadership Development

Does training in your organization need a refresh in order to deliver more value to learners and a higher return on development investment to the company? Only 10% of what we learn is from what we are taught using traditional lecture methods, 20% from social-based learning methods (talking with others to work through problems), and 70% comes from direct experiences and practice in realistic settings (Bersin, 2013). Reinforced learning represents that 70% and can actually boost retention to 90%.

Measuring Culture Data That Drives Bottom-Line Outcomes

A recent Harvard Business Review issue featured “The Culture Factor” in which the authors define culture as an “elusive lever because much of it is anchored in unspoken behaviors, mindsets and social patterns.” Best companies to work for, however, realize when expectations around these characteristics are well-defined and overt, the culture is better equipped to produce best business outcomes. [And isn’t achieving business objectives the real reason we’re concerned with culture?]

The Science Behind Microlearning

This troubling situation is far too common: Your employees return from a training or e-learning course armed with new information and skills. Yet, days after the training, your staff begin to forget what they just learned and revert back to old habits. It is like the training never took place at all! While you invested a lot of time and money in the training, the impact is very low and this can be extremely frustrating. What is going on? When you want staff to learn new information, retain it, and implement it in the workplace, you must understand the brain’s ergonomics and design a program that is effective.

Coaching to Leader Habits

The most effective way to develop leadership skills is with daily practice, of small behaviors, to build larger habits. Using the habit-building formula, any leader can develop new leader habits by practicing for just a few minutes each day. Part of the appeal of this approach to leadership development (aside from the fact that it actually works!) is that the learner can guide their own development, relatively autonomously, with minimal reliance on others.

Moving Beyond the Forgetting Curve

Pick any employee at your company, no matter the department, and ask them if they remember everything they were taught during their last training. Now ask them if they have changed their behaviors to better suit your company’s objectives as a result of that training. The forgetting curve proves that a majority of employees will forget important information within hours or days after training has ended. It also proves that without constant reinforcement, that knowledge will continue to fade. These are your training dollars going to waste.
