Ebbinghaus’ Forgetting Curve suggests that the majority of information transmitted to you in a workshop / lecture is forgotten within less than a week. Now, as a facilitator, it can be a little demoralising to think that so much time is spent on crafting a workshop, developing key learning points, building exercises to embed the learning – and for it all to be gone within such a short space of time. This is where coaching learning & development comes in.
Ebbinghaus identified that, by intervening and reminding at key points over the next few days, we have a greater opportunity for retaining information.
Having a coach or mentor to work within you over the next few weeks following a workshop means that you have a greater chance to understand and apply your new skills.
A workshop is the kick-off to something else: it isn’t the end point.
