The Aspire Learning Model

Here at Aspire, we say that there is a big difference between training and learning.  Training is the delivery of information and knowledge.  It does not create sustainable change.  Learning is different however.  Learning focuses on improving specific competencies and goes beyond just the mere delivery of knowledge.

We know that to build impactful and long lasting learning change you must start with collaboration, integrate research that allows for competitive advantage and innovative thinking, and ultimately make the learning interactive, accountable and energizing.

Here is the approach we take and you can start to apply to your own work:

Knowledge

Training is simply as it is just the delivery of information. This is where a typical training program stops, and Aspire is just getting started. Aspire uses more than just a facilitator and a manual. We integrate real customization so it is easy for the “learner” to apply the knowledge, research that gives our clients a competitive advantage and interactive learning, that we call play, to your people see how the knowledge actually works to improve their work and results.  Research shows that people want to do a good job and we leverage this into our training, or as we call it, learning approach. Play gets participants to think differently, know differently and gets their head into the game, not just into the information.

Application

Aspire shows participants how to apply the knowledge so they can clearly see new opportunities for everyday application. The “Learner” truly grasps the improvement possibilities through practical practice so the actually use the new processes and approaches. Doing is believing and believing is at the foundation of changing a competency.

Demonstration

Demonstration is the key to promoting change and improving competencies within your organization. Each person must be able to clearly demonstrate their ability to perform learned tasks. When a person demonstrates their ability, they are demonstrating the skill that is required to complete the task successfully. This is critical if competency, confidence, pride and enthusiasm are to follow which are the key ingredients for both sustainable change and constant and never-ending improvement.

Competency

A new competency means a better, smarter, faster way of getting to the desired outcome.  Competency comes from applying new knowledge, understanding its application and practice.  Practicing in a safe learning environment is important to helping your people feel good about making change and improving their skills and results. You have to change competencies to get a different result.

Confidence

This is when people really perform. Confidence is knowing that you know. When a person is both highly competent and has high confidence, you will find that they understand the task at hand and are able to use it effortlessly to its full intended purpose.

Pride & Enthusiasm

Imagine the ability to tap into a person’s real potential. Now multiply that by 10, or 100. When there is pride and enthusiasm, people will naturally want to know more and ask more productive questions.  This person is now on a self-guided path to endless improvement.
