Elexon – FLIP The Switch On
Dave’s top 3 ideas to make a team day more effective.
- Sessions should be no longer than 90mins at a stretch, after that people are just thinking about coffee, biscuits and the loo, (and not necessarily in that order).
- Fartlek the sessions (fartlek is Swedish for speed-play and basically means short sharp bursts). People retain a lot more information if they have to concentrate for shorter periods. Break the day down into 25 to 30-minute chunks of learning followed by a quick game or re-fresh. Always back-up theory where you can with some practical exercises, as this consolidates the learning and can add a lot of fun.
- Review. At the end of every session it is always useful to review what has been learned, agreed upon and, more importantly, enjoyed.
