What Does This Tell You?

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

• 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.

• 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
