INTRINSICALLY DRIVEN SKILLS: TRAINING DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
When we design and deliver training programs, our goal is to generate learning transfer that changes behavior and improves performance. It becomes a bit trickier when the skills we are building are intrinsically driven. What does this mean? A capability is intrinsically driven when performance is fueled by engagement, ownership, curiosity, concern, choice, initiative, or another form of intrinsic motivation.
Most management and leadership skills are intrinsically driven, but so are many teaming skills, and relationship skills. How ought the idea that a skill is intrinsically driven affect how we design and deliver training programs? We’ll explore this question during this interactive session.
