Tip #25: Create a motivational environment: Feeling

The last motivational training technique that helps to convert extrinsic motivation into intrinsic motivation is feeling. If a participant has been set up to be successful, is aware of experiencing that success, expects to continue to be successful, is interested in the content, and is drawn to learn it, then the instructor has created a pleasant learning environment, where it feels good to be there!

7. Feeling:

The way a learner feels in a particular situation affects the amount of effort that learner is willing to put forth to achieve learning. Learners are most inclined to put forth effort to learn if they find the learning situation pleasant and if they anticipate they will be successful (a pleasant feeling).

Example: An instructor who gives frequent breaks, establishes an informal learning environment, or sets the learners up to be successful through all the techniques previously discussed, creates a positive or friendly feeling in the classroom. An instructor who continues through a lesson plan without stopping to address the confusion of the learners, or is disinterested in answering learner questions, establishes a negative atmosphere.

The seven techniques have been presented in a sequence that shows their interrelationships. However, each of them has the potential to create a pleasant learning situation. What can you do to help your participants gain a positive feeling about the training?
