Book Description

26 Jan 2005
True brain-friendly learning is not about gimmicks. It is far more than just putting on classical music or playing games. It's a movement rather than just a method, a movement to recover the real joy of learning and bring sizzle and substance to your training sessions. This resource provides a blueprint for a new generation of Accelerated Learning methods and, at its heart, are five key principles: Keep it real; Facilitate the flow; Honour uniqueness; Make it rich and multi-sensory; and State is everything. There is a clear explanation of the theory behind Brain-Friendly Learning from the inside out; the concepts and learning models you'll need to underpin your approach, along with a journey through the most complex structure in the universe your amazing brain. You'll discover a concise guide to Brain-Friendly training design along with tools that you can pick and adapt to help you create new training events or make-over existing ones.

Product Description


The simplicity of Hare's and Reynolds' work appears, at times, to be almost surreal. It quickly becomes apparent though to the reader that a Lot of what is being explained is not in fact some complicated theory but rather under-standing what we all do day in and day out - using our brains on a practical level. All in all for what is essentially a text book, the content is fun. It is light hearted and tr-eats the concept of brain-friendly learning and development as something to be enjoyed rather than dreaded. It might just make the lives of trainers that Little bit easier in trying to convey messages which, after all, are more often than not plain, simple common sense. HR Network Scotland, June 2007 --HR Network Scotland, June 2007

This splendid collection of tools and ideas for trainers draws from the widest variety of sources. It not only gives a useful foundation for applying accelerated learning in the training room, it is also highly practical. We've been waiting a long time for someone to produce such a useful guide - three cheers for Kim and Larry for having finally done some justice to this fascinating and vital topic. Dr Mark McKergow, international learning consultant and author of The Solutions Focus --Dr Mark McKergow, international learning consultant and author of The Solutions Focus

Offers a wealth of thought provoking and well-designed activities and sessions that everyone will find interesting and useful. Anyone involved in professional training will gain superb ideas and examples to continually improve their existing skills and presentation styles. It is a well laid out publication that is user friendly and informative. This is a must for all who look to develop new ideas into their training and development events.

This book contains the key things that you need to make a training session really make a difference. Come to that, it can be applied to lots of other situations too - I have also applied the contents to project meetings, workshops and facilitated sessions.

The book doesn't just contain tools and techniques that you'd expect from a great book on training, it includes such vital information as how to keep people's brains in the most appropriate states for learning and for being productive and what to have for lunch to avoid the post lunch slump. It works very well too.. I've been using these techniques for over a year in a blue chip multinational to great effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most useful training book ever! 25 Feb 2010
By Sharks
I have never bothered to write a review for anything before, probably because nothing has compelled in the way this book has!

I have read many training books, some of them good, yet none come close to this. This is best described as a one-stop shop for great training ideas, techniques and concepts that pulls together the best bits of NLP, Accelerated Learning, psychology, learning name it, if it will help you design and deliver a superior workshop/course it's here!

Not only is everything here that you'd need, but as you'd hope from this type of book, it is written in a way that will get you excited about your next course. The book is good for reading cover to cover (if you're sad like me) or for dipping in and out of to find the perfect exercise or approach for your training.

Don't think twice about it buying this book if you'd like a practical and enjoyable approach to spicing up your training.
