Limited Capacity filling up

Are you encountering learning fatigue? Are the teams you work with sick of hearing "get better"? Do you feel like your learning has stagnated? Is your team fed up with being in the shadow of "high-performance" team?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone -- you have hit the continuous improvement wall. This wall is made up of many things -- a constant barrage of exponential change, your confirmation biases, succumbing to perfectionist tendencies, and unsafe learning environments.
The great news is that there has been a ton of research, learning, and ideation on all these things that may be holding us back from being badass. In this session, we'll explore together why we may hit the wall, look at the principles that will help us minimize the factors that cause the wall, and learn some techniques that you can apply to bust through the wall and cruise past high-performing and head to badass.
After attending this session, you’ll be able to talk about things that challenge our learning and several approaches to help motivate and drive our improvement — including the “Lonely Lean Coffee.”

Learning Outcomes:
  • After attending this session, the attendee will be able to describe Confirmation Bias and how it impacts having a growth mindset.
  • By the end of this session, an attendee will be able to evaluate the impact of perfectionism on their learning mindsets which might result in them not finishing their learning.
  • By the end of the session, the attendee will be able to recognize tribal behaviors and their impact on individual and team learning.
  • After attending the session, an attendee will be able to identify a strategy to reframe a particular learning barrier or identify ways to change their environment which might be preventing learning.
  • By the end of this session, the attendee will be able to enable continuous learning using Deliberate Practice, a Practice Canvas, a Learning "Badass" Board, and or Lonely Lean Coffee.
  • By the end of this session, the attendee will be able to leverage the tools as mentioned above and techniques to help teams continuously learn and improve.
