The Methodology

Experiential and Transformational

In facilitating the building high performing teams sessions we use a hybrid methodology based on two very powerful scientific approaches. The experiential and the transformational learning methodologies . We combine those with specially selected experiential platforms to bring the experience alive.

Experiential Learning

The emphasis in experiential learning is on the process of learning. Experiential learning consists of four phases – experiencing by doing the activity, sharing feelings and reactions, analysing the experience and finally applying the learning to other situations.
Experiential Learning represents an action-oriented way to people development, which involves, encouraging the participants to get involved in activities and learn through their own first-hand experience. This approach helps the participants interact and communicate with others. It helps the participants to look at each activity as a challenge, which they have to overcome as a team or as an individual.

Transformational Learning

The transformational learning methodology developed by 6 Seconds, deals with the fact that learning (and change) requires numerous iterations.  In this methodology, you can see the critically important “red lines,” the emotional transitions required to accelerate change.
From Fear to Courage, Judgement to Curiosity, Frustration to Excitement.

These same transitions are essential for development, because if we don’t get emotional connection, we don’t get hot cognition.

  • Engage:  Create cognitive and emotional hooks to create interest, activate pre-existing knowledge, and develop a context for new learning.
  • Activate: Build capability and enroll the brain through real-time experiences that blend emotional and cognitive content; bring powerful mental models to life so participants can begin to learn and test out new concepts.
  • Reflect:  Integrate new learning by synthesizing and concluding, so this knowledge, attitudes, and skills can be more readily applied.
