If you want to help people learn from activities, exercises or experiences, this book is for you. This book fills a gap; it is the gap between doing an activity and learning from it. Plenty of books describe activities that are good for icebreaking, for team-building, for project management or for cross-cultural understanding, etc. A few of these books do give advice about reviewing (or debriefing) the activities, and 90% of the times it reads: “Here are some questions you can ask ...”. How’s that for boring and/or limiting? The result of such advice is that reviews are often dull and they dwell on what went wrong. When reading, they give off a feeling of discomfort. But why is that? Well, one of the reasons is because the same people speak up all the time. And that bores and might even annoy the rest of the participants. Thus, reviewing gets a bad name and people just want the review to finish as quickly as possible so that they can get on with the next activity. This is a rare book for two reasons: It is about reviewing (How many books have you come across on this subject?) It is about reviewing actively.(Which makes it not just rare, but unique.) With the help of this book, you can make reviews at least as engaging as the activities you are reviewing. No more discomfort. No more unwanted silences. No more superficial reviews. Just engaging and practical ways to help people learn from experience! How does that sound for a change?

No doubt learning is a subject that has been addressed by many books and workshops, with the core interest mostly revolving around the content and how to make it unique, relevant, concise, etc. Other books and courses would rather introduce new/creative techniques for better engaging or getting the best of the training. So where does this book stand? This book stands in the learner's shoes! It is standing as a cornerstone for a different approach, having an eye for every detail that might reflect on the learner's experience; hence the name, "Learner eXperience Facilitation". Who is this book for? This book is for learning facilitators and designers, so to get introduced to a new perspective and to learn new framework where the learner is the center of the whole process. This is considered a sound tool for professionals who work hard to leave an impact through trainings and face to face learning sessions. It targets both independent professionals and those working for specific organizations, teachers and education professionals. This book introduces FIRST framework, research based framework, which is holistic and backed by theories from different basic sciences like, educational psychology, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, design thinking; among others. These disciplines are combined together so to create an engaging framework; leading to creating positive Active Deep learner experience, and hence, positive change in mindset and behaviors. If you are a learning facilitator and you feel the need of a creative and innovative framework to highly influence trainees, then this book is for you; through which you add the active deep learning techniques to your facilitation style. FIRST framework This book introduces FIRST framework, which includes five main domains, and 15 principles. These principles act together and integrate together; creating the Active Deep Learner eXperience. FIRST framework is a holistic one; it is based on other models and theories, such as: experiential learning by Kolb and John Dewey; cooperative learning by Kagan; Carl Rogers’ facilitation skills, Roy’s 6Ds and learning transfer; as well as positive psychology principles. FIRST is also inspired by the spirit of group coaching, which aims at promoting deep change and is focused on the future. It is a scientific and research based framework, developed through our experience in learning and development field; as well as measuring the impact of implementing the model via SeGa or our learners. FIRST framework is not only aiming to create active learning experience, it also targets transforming learning into performance, because incorporating both active and deep strategies creates engagement and impact. The five domains of FIRST act as layers each of them build on the previous domain and add to it, all the principles integrate with each other to form the active deep learner experience. "The end result is a proven, practical, and priceless model with five domains and fifteen principles that you can use yourself in staging active deep learning experiences." B. Joseph Pine II. Author, The Experience Economy. "FIRST framework provides important insights, principles, and practical advice for doing so a travel guide, if you will, that will help you on your own learning journey and those on which you lead others."

Boards At Work How Directors View Their Roles And Responsibilities

Boards of directors are coming under increasing scrutiny in terms of their contribution in monitoring and controlling management, particularly in the wake of high-profile corporate frauds and failures, and also their potential to add value to organizational performance through involvement in the strategy process and through building relationships with key investors. Despite the importance of these issues, not only to organizations but also arguably to national competitiveness, the nature of board activity remains largely a black box, clouded by prescriptions, prejudices, and half-truths. This book responds to calls for greater scrutiny of boards of directors with an in-depth examination of directors of UK organizations, drawing on the accounts of directors themselves as to their roles, influence, and the potential and limits to their power. Much work on boards of directors has labelled the board as a rubber stamp for dominant management, and non-executive directors in particular have been variously described as poodles, pet rocks, or parsley on the fish. Such accounts are rooted in assumptions of board activity that are essentially adversarial in nature, and that the solution to the 'problem' of reconciling the interests of managers with those of shareholders is to increase the checks and balances available to the board of directors. The findings of this study show that boards, in many cases, are far more than passive rubber stamps for management and that non-executives are encouraged to act as trusted advisers to the executives and the chief executive, rather than solely monitors of executive activity. Boards are important mechanisms in maintaining the strategic framework of the organization through setting the boundaries of organizational activity. The potential of the board members, in particular the non-executives, to fulfil such a mandate depends on a number of factors, including ability, willingness to engage with the organizational issues, and the degree of knowledge they have relevant to the host firm. Above all, the degree of trust built between members of the board, and between the board and key external constituencies, is at the heart of effective board behaviour.

Working With Older Persons

The essential purpose of this book is to provide practitioners and students of the human service professions with a practice approach and methodology that has been developed over the past ten years in both research and clinical work with older persons. It is concerned with the kinds of emotional prob lems that are salient and pervasive in the second half of life, that is, from about the ages of 50 on into the 60s, 70s, and 80s. These problems are often related to inevitable developmental and situational events and losses, as well as the decrements and concerns that are prevalent in the latter decades of life: physical decline and illness, loss of loved ones, concerns about one's own mortality, loss of major occupational and family roles, and the issues of meaning in and about one's life which are raised by these losses and concerns. The approach to these problems will include a range of assessment and treatment methods for counseling and psychotherapy. It will, however, em phasize two particular kinds of methods for dealing with these problems. The first of these, cognitive methods, tend to focus on how older persons think about or construe these problems whereas phenomenological methods focus on how persons experience or feel about them. What is common to both is that they are oriented toward the person's perception of the prob lem.

Factors To Consider In Blending Active And Reserve Manpower Within Military Units

A 2002 Department of Defense (DoD) report stated that the military services developed or adopted many innovative approaches to unit structures and organization as force size changed and operational tempo increased. The report suggested that organizational concepts leading to a more flexible, capable force must be implemented more broadly to better capitalize on the capabilities and strengths of the reserve components. In particular, such organizational concepts include blending active component (AC) and reserve component (RC) workforces in military units. We define blending as any arrangement or event that brings active and reserve manpower together within organizations for a common purpose. At the organizational level where mission work is actually done, there is interest in workforce integration between the components.

How can philosophy guide our understanding of and approach to counseling ethics and techniques? Moving beyond the standard review of ethical issues and basic problem solving, this highly engaging new text for counseling professionals features innovative, experiential activities and case studies that promote in-depth thinking about the ethical, moral, and legal issues often confronted by counseling professionals. The book is designed to help counselors develop an appreciation for and confidence in their preferred set of philosophical ethics and become ethically autonomous professionals. To this end, it examines a full range of philosophical approaches to ethics, such as the well-known concepts of ethics codes and laws, as well as the less familiar ideas of existential phenomenology, care ethics, and virtues.

It provides a solid foundation in ethical decision making, critical thinking, and best practices that will enable counseling professionals to navigate the maze of ethical codes and standards of care, while confidently practicing in a consistently ethical manner. The accompanying Instructorís Manual offers step-by-step guidance on how to facilitate classroom activities and case study discussions, as well as a sample syllabus and a selection of quiz and essay questions to enhance studentsí understanding of each chapter.
