What Does This Tell You?

Perhaps it’s time to change your approach to workplace learning practices!  Consider these reasons:

• Today’s leaders require a variety of platforms and experienced experts to learn from due to the needs that exist for dynamic leadership throughout an organization, the ability to hire and retain top talent, the creation of a culture of high performance, and the ability to experience continued growth and profitability.”

• Most training does not include interaction, idea-sharing, and brainstorming with people from other organizations.

• Most do not take people outside of their own environment that will stimulate creativity and “shake-up” how they think.

• Often, internal trainers can become too familiar with learners instead of providing new trainers for each session.

• There is little or no accountability for implementation of skills learned.

• Often, there are limitations to what is available in-house. Some use the same trainers for every program.

• Executives, Directors of HR, Talent Managers, OD Development, and Directors of Training, professionals don’t always recognize the benefits of supplementing their own programs with an outside source
