Training Reinforcement: The 7 Principles to Create Measurable Behavior Change and Make Learning Stick adds quantifiable value to every training program by providing proven practices and tools for transforming newly–learned knowledge and skills into habitual behaviors.

For the first time, former Olympic Judo competitor and world–class corporate training expert Anthonie Wurth shares the secret formula he and his brother Kees Wurth, also a national Judo champion, built their training reinforcement company on. Founded on the same 7 principles detailed inside, Mindmarker has enabled industry–leading businesses worldwide to get the highest ROI on their training investments.

Even the most effective training initiatives aren′t able to transfer learning into application. In sports, top athletes must drill moves over and over until they become second nature. This highly–tested reinforcement methodology incorporates the science of human brains in relation to application, so you can challenge and encourage learners to reach new levels of performance, while inspiring them with regular statistics marking their progress.

This complete reinforcement guide takes you from introducing training reinforcement programs to your organization to confidently taking the role of reinforcement specialist and delivering results by providing you with:

  • A deep understanding of the ins and outs of reinforcement, how it differs from training, and all the knowledge and tools to influence strategic behavioral change
  • Step–by–step guidance for building a results–driven, customized reinforcement program, as well as ready–to–use tools and assessments for seamless execution
  • Scientifically crafted message templates designed to optimize communication through every step of the reinforcement process so learners stay engaged and motivated

As business evolves, training initiatives will change, and with The 7 Principles of Reinforcement, you can always ensure the new way of doing things sticks.
