“Do it again. Play it again. Sing it again. Read it again. Write it again. Sketch it again. Rehearse it again. Run it again. Try it again. Because again is practice, and practice is improvement, and improvement only leads to perfection.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway
Why is it that we tend to forget whatever we have learnt at a workshop? Or maybe we learn something but are unable to apply it back at work? How do we fix this issue?
Research indicates that almost 80% of what we have learned can be lost in the first 30 days.
While, experiential learning is proven to make our learning more impactful by ensuring that we reflect on our experiences and connect them back to our work, deliberate practice is important to ensure that the learning is transferred back to our workplace.
Workshop interventions by themselves are clearly no longer enough. Macro interventions run in face to face workshop sessions, have to be complemented with micro learning interventions. As Josh Bersin puts it, this is true regardless of whether the employee is new on the job, seasoned or an expert.
FocusU brings its extensive experience of running various learning interventions, to help organizations “reinforce workshop learning” through the use of customized microlearning delivered on the mobile.
Microlearning ensures that learners :
⦁ Get a chance to refresh their concepts post the workshop
⦁ Can practice various scenarios and get feedback
⦁ Are engaged with other learners on the group to share inputs, experiences, reflections. Social learning is a powerful.
⦁ Work on a live project to apply their learnings
⦁ Feel confident about applying the concepts and models
⦁ Have a safe space where they can experiment
The microlearning platform also saves the L&D function the frustration of having to follow up with learners by doing so automatically. Additionally, real time dashboards help to review progress and to get a first-hand feel if learners are feeling confident about applying their workshop learnings.

It forced me to learn and grow in spite of dealing with my busy schedule of juggling between work and a new-born back at home... you not only helped me understand new concept in merely 15 mins span to 30 mins., but also challenged me to think through different issues I feel, I should deal with. I should get them sorted mentally in my mind first than in real life... Thank you for helping me GROW my knowledge...
Thank you FocusU team and Smollan L&D team for designing such a wonderfully continuous learning program, it acted like small and effective doses to look for what next...and what more coming once way to improve. Case studies chosen were all relevant for my Global Development Team & I could not ask for more. Let’s plan for some monthly 1 hour on premise confluence sessions. Thanks once again.
