How We Learn
This 1-3-hour workshop is designed for organizations who want to refine their existing education and training, whether within their workforce or their external stakeholders. This session, usually combined with an evaluation of existing programs and communication, is catered to the specific needs of the organization and focuses on everything from refining communication for clarity and understanding to strategies related to in-person and online learning.
This workshop focuses on the employee’s relationship with the information age, including social media, cable news, and a host of other information sources and platforms. The session focuses on confirmation bias, FOMO, compassion fatigue, and a host of other byproducts of life in this digital age. Attendees reflect upon their own relationship with technology and develop ways to manage all of the information coming at them…without the information managing them!
