For many years, professionals worldwide have been inspired by Simon Sinek’s ‘Start with Why’. Would this approach also be useful for learning and development? In this free, interactive webinar, Ger Driesen explains why he wants to ‘transform’ it into ‘Start with Who’. Join in and learn all about ‘the Golden Circle of Learning Design’. Definitely interesting for learning designers.

For many years, we have benefited from Simon Sinek’s ‘Start with why’. This inspiring idea also guided learning designers in their approach although it originates from a leadership and marketing perspective. In the era of Learner eXperience Design, it’s time to put the learner back in the centre of our design. To do so, we have to replace the ‘why’ with ‘who’ and create the ‘Golden Circle for learning design’.

Why ‘Start with why’ is a pitfall for learning design:

  • Start with WHO to really understand the people that have to get the job done;
  • Explore different types of WHAT kind of ‘jobs to be done’ for real empathy;
  • Understand the characteristics of the context WHERE the job takes place.

Use your understanding to design the right blend of learning and performance support interventions and modalities

Even more inspiration about learning?

Here are some interesting blogs from Ger to get you started.

Ger’s Learning Notes #27 – The Learning Technologies 2019

Do you have something you look forward to at the start of every new year? I do. It’s the Learning Technologies conference and exhibition in London. You can get a very good overview of the actual and global landscape of the learning technologies that are available and see how these technologies are evolving.

Ger’s Learning notes #26 – Learning Techniques

Practice is hard; it’s about trying to achieve something you haven’t mastered yet. That’s a frustrating process and for a bit of relief, we tend to stop practicing for a few minutes of play: applying something we have already mastered because that is satisfying. Don’t. Stick with your practice until you reach your goal. That’s what is called ‘deliberate practice’. It’s one of the learning techniques of this edition of the learning notes.

Design for how people learn by Julie Dirksen

Julie Dirksen is a true expert when it comes to learning design and the author of a really good book, Design for how people learn. And I was lucky enough to catch her on her European trip to ask her a few questions about why learning professionals should take a look at her book.

Ger’s Learning notes #25 – Reflection and Self-Awareness

As learning designers, we can support professionals to learn via reflection and to create better self-awareness. But we have to do it the right way and to give you some input for that, reflection and self-awareness are the main topics of this edition of the learning notes.

How to start with Microlearning

With the rallying cry of “Help me, instead of giving me courses!” coming from the workplace, microlearning support can be easily created to help people in all aspects of their work. Ger recently sat down with Shannon Tipton, also known as the ‘queen of microlearning’. Shannon gives a short starter about what microlearning is and how to use it.

Learning from mistakes: the London Fishbowl event write-up

Which mistake that you’ve ever made has felt like a catastrophic failure at the time but, upon reflection, was a huge learning opportunity? How has that updated your thinking since? That was the great question that panellist Jo Cook came up with to start the Fishbowl session in London. The event was organized again by Trent Rosen form PSK Performance who runs Fishbowl events on a regular basis ‘at home’ in Australia. The Dorchester Academy hosted the event in one of their fantastic meeting rooms.
