What is experiential training in a model company?
Experiential learning is the most natural and powerful form of learning.
This is why on-field learning, “learning by doing”, should be used to acquire or develop skills.
A method of learning by doing
To learn a new skill, our brain must process the information and organize it.
Experiential training involves learning based on experiencing real situations and practical exercises in which the participants have the opportunity of “learning by doing”. What they learn at LEF will then be transferred to the company.
Benefits of experiential training for organizations
Experiential training clearly differs from other types of training since it increases and stimulates analysis, action, involvement and learning.
Through the guidance of qualified teachers, the members of a company or inter-company team recreate business situations and problems, analyze and develop new solutions to real problems and take inspiration from national and international best practices to achieve operational excellence of the organization.
Here are 5 concrete benefits of experiential training:
The experiential training offers trainees the opportunity to immediately apply what they have learned, to solve the daily work challenges in their own business context.
The experience requires practice and targeted coaching on what is observed during the action. Each activity includes a feedback session from the trainer and from the participants.
Not just training but a learning experience. Why? Because being part of the transformation leads to a change of mindset and organization that can then be transferred within your company.
The immersion in a real business environment allows participants to relate to the problems and to test efficient solutions in a “risk-free” environment.
The effort of the participants can find immediate feedback: they can know if they are improving thanks to continuous feedback, solve their own gaps and try again. A continuous cycle of learning-action-feedback that immediately brings concrete results.
