Evidence proves that having fun at work or in training makes people more productive and more capable of learning. “If we find ways of enjoying our work – blurring the lines between work and play – the gains will be greater.” Ellen Langer, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University
Effective training is not about listening to an instructor, watching some slides and perhaps a video and taking notes. Delegates find it more interesting where some of the time involves training games with specially created conditions, which aim to reproduce those of a working situation. The training activity will also focus on behaviour learning activities that allow you to practice the skills you are learning.
When employees are gathered together for classroom training, they are often meeting face-to-face for the first time. Starting the training with a game that encourages social interaction can create common bonds between employees and make them more comfortable, which promotes openness and increased sharing.
Keeping attention levels high
Ice breaker games and energiser games that allow participants to move around and have fun will keep everyone fresh and focused.
Successful training is commonly segmented into blocks of approximately 20 minutes followed by group problem solving, open discussion, and games. Using training games in this way increases knowledge retention and keeps attention spans high.
Training activities provide an enjoyable way of reinforcing knowledge and skill use.
“What I hear, I forget; what I see, I remember; but what I do, I understand.” Confucius 451 BC
