Investment in training for many organizations often results in a roller coaster effect: a temporary improvement in performance, followed by declines or learning plateaus. According to research published in Learning Solutions, 80% of what employees learn is forgotten within 30 days. Battling this up and down cycle has become a constant challenge for trainers. How do you replace incremental and fleeting increases in knowledge with lasting fluency that learners can call upon in real performance situations?

Holistic learning offers a solution to not only make these gains permanent, but also to give people the skills to continually improve their own performance. So stop feeding your learners, and teach them to fish instead. In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • The science and psychology behind why holistic learning works
  • How to design a holistic learning program, and why microlearning should be at the center
  • How to teach best practices and metacognitive strategies to give learners a 360º view of a topic
  • Why holistic learning saves time, money, and improves performance--permanently
