A great book to read…

I love it when I find a simple, engaging and practical book which will help me in what I love to do. What I love to do it to make training and learning engaging, interesting and sticky! What I mean by sticky is learning that is lasting, memorable and that has impact on the organisation.

This book, called “Using Brain Science to make Training Stick” by Sharon Bowman, is fab! Not only does it have some practical methods of making your training activities impactful as a read it is engaging. I was encouraged to approach the book with coloured pens, post-its and sticky tabs, making it a very memorable experience. So Sharon practices what she preaches in this book.

It is not an expensive book but if you want to get a clearer idea of her 6 principles, just look at this short video.

    Will be looking up on Amazon and one hopes there is a Kindle version.
    Simple and effective techniques which seem for many teachers/trainers and assessors too “hard basket” or “we’ve always done it like this!”.
    Great article and excellent video using the same principles as espoused.
    Good stuff
