and About The Military Method
The essence of military method of training is, that it’s not about teaching people things at all.
It’s about self-discovery and changing people so that they can do things they wouldn’t have dreamed of doing otherwise.
Why it Works.
Military approach to coaching
ACE values to deliver.
Our brains are not wired to learn through sequenced lists.
There are two keys for people to retain and apply knowledge, against the wear of time, culture and habits. These two keys are:-
★ Simultaneously engage them with multiple ideas and topics that concern and interest them, - just as it happens in real life;
★ Give them a chance to forget these learnings over a short period of time and then, force a recall. Recalling information and habits over time, reinforces neural pathways to memory and dig in new habits.
The "Explode way" achieves this.
★ Clear Objective. Clearly identified training needs and weaving in tracking milestone through out the engagement with participants.
★ Task based Experiential Learning. First contact, through carefully customised task oriented experiences that nudge the minds, blending sound behavioural psychology, with military methods - leading to memorable experiential learning;
★ Coach-Connect, long duration follow-up. The second step, is by introducing ideas and reiterating topics through a long term support. This foundational approach, ensures that you continue to build on the knowledge of what you learnt in the past.
