Drama & Active Learning

30 minute Course

Why use an Experiential approach?

In Equilibrium partners with one of the UK’s leading consultancies specialising in drama-based experiential learning. When considering your development theme, why would you choose an experiential approach rather than a knowledge-based approach?

Reasons for choosing an Experiential approach:

Your managers have already been introduced to the theory relating to these kinds of behaviours and situations.  However, they still don’t feel confident to address the situations in practice.  What they now need is an opportunity to experiment with applying that knowledge and existing experience in a safe environment.
Focus on developing practical skills and confidence.  Outcome – behaviour change.  

Your managers know about your organisation’s employment policies & procedures, but they don’t implement them effectively.  What you need to do is to assess their performance in response to a fictitious situation so that you can discover what is holding them back and that can be addressed.
Focus on diagnosis.  Outcome – training needs analysis.

You have managers with very mixed levels of experience and knowledge and you want to encourage them to learn from one another and to get to know how one another operate as managers.

Your staff surveys (e.g.) have identified specific problems which you want to address in the session.  You want a completely tailored experiential process that will enable these behaviour changes to be identified, discussed and addressed.
Focus on specific themes/behaviours/situations relating to issues within your organisation.  Outcome – organisation specific developments.

You want your managers to be challenged, excited and to be moved outside their comfort zones and you know that an experiential process will do that.
Focus on engagement, fun and challenge.  Outcome – new understanding about self and others.
