Stephen J. Meyer: Talent Development Thought Leader

Stephen J. MeyerMost workplace training is broken
Far too many organizations view training as an event, not a process. They send their people to a conference or bring in a consultant for a few days. Employees get fired up and come back to their jobs eager to use what they’ve learned. The problem is, most adults forget what they learned before they can apply it to the job.

That’s the underlying problem Stephen J. Meyer set out to solve when he established Rapid Learning Institute. Stephen understood that the key to ensuring that learning sticks is to break it down into small, manageable chunks. These chunks must be revisited on a regular basis, known as Interval Reinforcement, to ensure that the training concepts take hold and become habit. To that end he created Quick Takes – short, 6- to 10-minute learning modules that provide laser-focused training suitable for the modern adult learner. The Rapid Learning Institute now offers more than a hundred Quick Takes that give learners the training they need, when they need it and managers the tools they need to make training a manageable process.
