This book focuses on the shift from training to learning to collaborative learning in the modern socially networked age. It also covers how to accelerate talent engagement, development and organisational change for Breakthrough Results. It outlines key principles, processes and tools to accelerate learning in organisations, using the latest research in Neuroscience and practical case studies which bring learning to life. The book covers paradigm shifts in learning; whole brain, whole person approaches to learning; creating learning cultures; and designing Accelerated Learning programmes which are relevant to individuals, business leaders and learning specialists. Accelerated learning for breakthrough results covers the following topics, and ends with two case studies that will show how all of the various aspects of accelerated learning can be pulled together to create real, high impact learning for breakthrough results. Paradigm shift for accelerated learning; Whole brain, whole person approach to learning; Creating a learning culture; Designing accelerated learning programmes; Making it real - case studies of accelerated learning. The authors invite readers to engage with the topic, and accelerate their learning through various ramification mechanics and brain-break activities in the book and online. There is a rabbit warren of resources, tools and rewards available through opting in to an online process and ways of interacting with other readers and learners through social media.
