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.

Surviving, thriving and learning in a VUCA world

We live in a VUCA world, with VUCA being the acronym for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. The term was first introduced by the US Army War college. During the Cold War, things were much simpler; the world was divided into two camps, and it was clear who ‘the enemy’ was. After the Cold War, it became a lot more complicated, quickly. Things changed fast and many changes were hard to interpret. Leaders in the army, who were trying to adjust their strategies, experienced this ‘new normal’ as volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, and so, ‘the VUCA world’ was introduced.

How to start with online learning? [podcast]

If you’ve never designed and delivered online learning before, where do you start? What skills do you need and how can you best choose a digital solution? To answer these questions, I participated in a podcast with @Stef Scott and @Ross Garner from GoodPractice. Here are some highlights of what the three of us discussed.

Ger’s Learning Notes #12 – Eclectic blended learning tips

‘Eclectic’, I first learned the word in relation to architecture. If a building can’t be categorised in a specific architectural style because it is a mixture of styles – just call the style eclectic. I’ve always loved the word and it fits the theme of this edition of the learning notes quite nicely.

This week’s edition covers topics like visuals, training strategy, starting with online learning and even cat gifs. And yes, besides the fact that they are all dedicated to inspire learning, they are eclectic.

Ger’s Learning Notes #11 – Music and learning

I can image you sometimes put your headphones on when you need to get work done. Or perhaps you see your kids study with those chunky headphones on their heads. Music plays an important role to get work done at the aNewSpring office and we like it! Can we discover the link between music and learning in this edition of the learning notes?Lyrics of different songs can spark new energy. For a while, every time I heard Alain Clark sing ‘push my button’ in his song Blow me away, I felt I small jolt of energy. There are some intriguing sources to explore around the link between music and learning. How about the Mozart effect and the Vivaldi effect? Some lyrics can inspire us as learning professionals or help us focus, like a song by Joss Stone song does for me (included in the notes).

Ger’s Learning Notes #10 – Impact

The 1st of June was a very special day in Rotterdam. We hosted our annual customer conference. The weather couldn’t be more perfect and we had a magnificent turnout. The theme of the day was IMPACT and that is why I chose to use the same theme for this 10th edition of Ger’s Learning Notes.

Ger’s Learning Notes #09 – ATD 2017

You were looking forward to visiting ATD this year but you couldn’t make it? This edition of my learning notes is created based on sessions at ATD 2017 in Atlanta. – Cheers – Ger
