Kolb’s Learning Cycle

David Kolb’s theory is typically represented by a four-stage learning cycle in which the learner ‘touches all the bases’.  Learning is more effective when we progresses through a cycle of four stages: having a experience followed by reflection on that experience which leads to some assumptions and/or conclusions which are then tested in future situations, resulting in new experiences and so on.  In this  video we explore Kolb’s Learning Cycle and how it can help business owner managers support continual professional development.

Watch the video for background information about Kolb’s Learning Cycle, feel free to request the templates laura@thehiddenedge.co.uk. I am happy to share.

3. Use a reflective journal to record your actions as a result of an ah ha moment

Please do share your experiences with these models in the comments below.  I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
