Research show that around 80% of our knowledge comes from our experiences and that of others. And we learn this by sharing experiences and stories. In spite of this, there is a strong bias - most training and learning programs focus on the 20% content handed down by instructions and lessons.  Why is this bias so strong? How do you make a shift to take advantage of rich experiences to accelerate the learning of your workers and team members?

In this session, we will cover:
  • What are causes and challenges in adding Story and Experience Sharing in most training programs?
  • Where and how does Story and Experience Sharing help in accelerating learning?
  • What are the key steps in incorporating experience sharing in your courses?
  • What are proofs that this approach works?
