"Bridging the Gap!"
Our Mission StatementAt PeopleLearn™, we believe that people, including ourselves, create our own obstacles to change, to growth, or to learning new skills or behaviors because we get caught up in old patterns and habits. If we are to bridge our learning gaps, we have to make a paradigm shift in our learning process.
In ThePeopleLearningLab™, our purpose is to create learning modules, sometimes a series of learning modules, that are designed with change in mind. Many times we have to ex-change some ineffective skills and behaviors with new, more powerful skills that work for us instead of against us. And…sometimes we just need to add to what we already know.
"Tellin' Ain't Learnin'!""Involve me and I learn!" As I traveled throughout the United States presentlng Franklin Quest's (FranklinCovey) time management and productivity principles, I learned as much or more than those I taught. We did a lot of tellin' but we also used techniques that resulted in a lot of learnin' that changed people's behaviors and their lives. As Ben said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn!" —Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
"Bridging the Gap."The Learning Gap. In the true learning process, which always involves change, there is a gap between what we know now...and what we need to learn to "do" in order to change our behavior and "become" something better! In order to do that, the learner must bridge the gap by learning HOW to make a paradigm shift to overcome those obstacles, and then learn and practice new concepts based on the new learning paradigm. Learners need to believe that what they are learning is correct for them, and then establish the habits and behaviors to make it real. When learning skill sets, behavior must be repeated at predetermined intervals until it "sticks" and then they "own" it! After that, the subconscious memory, and sometimes the muscle memory takes over and the result is the desired behavioral change.
As we taught at Franklin...
"Practice does not make perfect. Practice makes permanent, so practice right!"
