“There is no influence like the influence of habit”

-Gilbert Parker

The evolution of staff training

HBL is a supportive, intuitive and effective approach to workplace learning.

Coupled with on-site or virtual training, it delivers targeted lessons (post-session) to learners in the palm of their hand each day so they can naturally learn new behaviours over a prescribed timeline.

By interacting with the training material every day, learners easily adopt the learned material into their workflows thereby improving overall performance.

It’s simple: bite-size daily engagement with training content ensures learners retain more knowledge for longer

Habit-based Learning in your business

Habit-based learning adapts to any training material
Case Study: Sales Team Training

One of our financial services clients required sales training for 10 senior salespeople. We delivered our Advanced Sales Training workshop in a one-day session. The results speak for themselves.

Return On Investment: R650.00 p/R1000.00 spent on training.

How HBL works

Multimodal Learning

Habit-based Learning is more than e-learning, traditional training or micro-learning. Knowledge retention (KR) is developed by stimulating the habit-forming centre of the brain, the Basal Ganglia.

Using a multimodal system whereby the learner experiences the training material repeatedly in a variety of formats (video, written summaries, audio, presentations), the learning process is easily sustained. This is essential for long-term benefit and employee performance.

A typical HBL flow

A vital element in ensuring knowledge retention and overall performance lies in the ability to hold the participant accountable for their learning process and habit development.

We call this accountability process an ‘Intervention’.


Support when you need it most

Interventions are a key factor in HBL success rates.

Even with the best intentions, humans tend to become distracted and forget to complete tasks vital to developing a habit. Using interventions (a system of accountability) learners are quickly engaged when they fail to complete a required daily task.

This engagement builds a sense of support and helps keep the learner on track to adopting the learned material into their day-to-day.

Benefits of HBL

  • Cost-effective ROI

  • Improved Performance

  • Supportive Framework

  • Knowledge Retention

  • Fewer refreshers
