Pace of learning

This is a swift post.

It has pace and speed.

It is hasty; a quick fix.

We’re often asked to help people learn quickly but do we consider cadence?  We are handed a deadline but do we break down the steps :

  • into a rate that people want?
  • into the rate we want?
  • into the rate the sponsor wants?
  • or whatever rate we have become used to working at?

Swift, pacy, speedy, hasty, can all be good.

An agreed cadence is better.

Comments, as always, very welcome.

  1. Do you mean allowing enough time to close off properly?

    You can’t please all the people all the time, so however pacy or not it is, it won’t be right for some.

    So an agreed cadence is probably impossible to achieve.

    Liked the pace of this post. Some are way too wordy (not yours)

  2. Thanks Michael – I mean it more in terms of recognising that every person will have a different rhythm and length of step. However, do we allow time for people to reflect at their pace and length of stride?

    As long as they meet the objective by the time required, does it matter that someone moves forward only 10% in 90% of the time?
