The Learning Workshop

Two Day Learning Experience

Think, learn, and create at a whole new level. Our most requested session is also the most comprehensive.  Participants gain skills considered in the field of life coaching.  Applying the Learning Model to new skills in experiential form over two days promotes long term application.

  • Learning Model
  • Mind Mapping
  • Memory Model
  • Juggling
  • Drawing

Introduction

Describes the background, purpose, and objectives of the course; discusses administrative items; and provides research data on the necessity of breaks for the optimal relationship between learning and recall.

Benchmarking & Creativity

Throughout the workshop participants measure current abilities and compare against progress made with the models taught in the workshop. The initial benchmark explores the current limits we place on our creativity by using the analogy of a commonly used item.

Learning

A focus on brain physiology and introduces a powerful model for learning, T.E.F.C.A.S. Additional topics include how habits are formed; barriers to change; how to effectively make change; personal empowerment; positive attitude; and turning problems into goals.

Brain

Presents Roger Sperry’s split brain research and explains the importance of both left and right cortical skills in developing creative thinking. In other words, provides information on how to apply this research to our individual thinking process and decision making. Provides successful characteristics of some great brains in history, including Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci.

Memory and Associative Thinking

Provides an overview of how the brain works associatively and how this can be applied to strengthen memory. The applications in this segment guide the participant through powerful self-discovery, which demonstrate our uniqueness and its strength. Presents SMASHIN’ SCOPE, 12 basic principles of memory and the number-rhyme memory system.

Whole Brain Writing: Mind Mapping®

Mind Mapping is a whole brain thought organization technique based upon the brain’s ability to learn, store, and recall information. Participants apply knowledge of brain research presented to optimize note taking/making and brain storming. Provides examples of diverse applications; and includes several exercises to build skill level.

Drawing

Includes two basic sessions of drawing skills, including shapes & icons; and a more advanced portrait drawing. Drawing skills enable the participant to enhance Mind Maps and apply the T.E.F.C.A.S. Learning model. Many participants have a significant learning event as a result.

Mind Mapping Applications

Enables participants to continue practice Mind Mapping and build on previous skills by adding new drawing capabilities. All practice applications include coaching; shared discussion of participants’ progress and lessons learned; and time for questions and answers.

Review

Overview major learning points and share variety of personal and professional examples. Discussion of potential learning obstacles and plan to overcome for ongoing learning success!
