Dear HR , Training and Learning & Development Heads,
This quarter, I will be writing on THINKING articles, I hope you enjoyed my last article on ‘how to think and plan for your programs’.
This week I will teach you what you can emphasize to your trainers that can encourage your participants to THINK during the entire days of the workshop you do.
THINK: 8 Thinking Routines you can use in your workshops
Encourage your participants to recall a situation they encountered. (the process of thinking will encourage your participants to develop their understand on a pass behavior or past action in relation to the objective of the training module)
-COMPARE DIFFERENT VIEW POINTS
Encourage your participants to find out what other angles can they think off?
-REASON WITH EVIDENCE
Encourage your participants to think the reason of ‘why they think it so’?
Encourage your participants to understand ‘how does this fit’ with what is being said
Encourage your participants to dig what lies beneath the surface of whats being discussed
-DESCRIBE WHATS THERE
Encourage your participants to tell what is there and notice it now.
Encourage your participants to explain in details what is going on here
-CAPTURE THE HEART & FORM CONCLUSIONS
Encourage your participants to think of whats at the core or center of whats being discussed.
You can use any type of the thinking routines not just for training programs but for meetings, discussions etc.
