Post-programme activities to support the transfer of learning and habit building
Reflecting on the trust triangle, where do you experience wobbles? Seek feedback on someone who knows you well. Where could you improve and how could you do this?
Incorporate reflective thinking into your daily routine. Use the ‘What-So what-Now what’ process to ensure that you are constantly learning from your performance and that reflective thinking becomes habitual.
Consider the tasks which you typically have to ask other people to complete. Where can you change how you do this so that you are starting with the ‘why’ rather than the ‘what’?
