I am the creator of a learning technique called ‘real play’. Real play gets people ready to perform well and confidently in any interpersonal situation (performance conversation, delivering a presentation, facilitating a tough negotiation, asking for a raise …). Ninety percent of the people who walk out of courses where I use real play experience a sharp increase in their ability and confidence level. This is not due to anything I say but the real-play process itself which comes from the learner’s own experience. Real-play makes learning totally relevant to real challenges the learner is facing and needs to solve.
I have been inspired by the ground breaking research of David Kolb who stresses that we learn through our experiences. As educators/HRD professionals, we must always start with the learner’s experiences if we want to see transformation or behavioral change.
I am always open to conversation and debate. Reach out to me via twitter, LinkedIn or old fashioned email.
