What is this programme about?

 

When delivering training in the workplace, or any other form of adult learning, it is imperative that participants are actively engaging with the training material. Those taking part in activities relating to capability and knowledge development must have a clear understanding of not only the subject matter, but also its relevance to them and the applicability of the training to their day-to-day work. Good workplace learning is characterised by high levels of engagement, high levels of energy, clear relevance of the subject matter, and the potential to implement and apply the training outcomes immediately. Only then will the investments of time, money, and resources pay off.

Points of You® is a methodology involving the application of a collection of creative tools for professional and personal development. Developed in 2006 by two professional coaches, this methodology has had a transformative impact on both individuals and organisations in 147 countries; the tools have been translated into 20 different languages and have been successfully implemented by more than one million people worldwide. Based on the andragogical research of Malcolm Knowles, these tools have been selected in order to help participants bridge the gap between knowledge and experience, delivering immediate takeaways that can be applied in a number of contexts. A cornerstone of the Points of You® method is the interaction between the right brain — the intuitive and emotional half of the brain — and the logical and analytical left brain. By drawing on the power of a whole-brain approach, new possibilities happen and new neural connections are formed, which translates into new insights and breakthroughs for the participants. 

The Points of You® approach follows a simple framework, PRIME, which focuses on the key characteristics of effective workplace learning:

PRIME

Preparedness to learn

Refuge from judgment

Immediate Relevance

Myriad of Ideas

Extension into Real World

This 3-hour experiential workshop is designed to respond directly to the various challenges and pain-points raised by the participants. Discussions will take place through the application of a selection of the Points of You® tools, to help participants not only learn what is involved, but also gain firsthand experience to get a very real feel of how effective this approach is. In the course of these discussions, guided by the facilitator but led by the participants, a number of issues will be explored, first identifying specific challenges to effective workplace learning, then designing future actions by implementing the Points of You® approach.  By incorporating elements of this into your own training and coaching, you will be able to deliver training that leaves your trainees feeling energised and empowered, with a clear sense of direction and purpose.
