Stop Wasting Your Training Dollars
Organizations invest in training for staff. Independent professionals invest in training to power their careers forward by increasing their value. Both need to understand when and why those investment product ROI , and when they do not. years of systematically follow up on the millions of dollars of training investment I made for my staff have taught me what to look for in training which does produce ROI. Now you can too ….
I have spent millions of my employer’s dollars on soft skill and technical skill training programs for the people I led over a number of decades.
Educated in the psychology of the work place, but determined to get value for my employer's money, I systematically followed to see how training expenditure produced ROI, once people got back on-the-job.
Here is what I learned.
A. Technical skill training dollars only produced ROI when the people sent on such programs:
1. were motivated to learn the skill before they went to the program,
2. had an opportunity to apply their new skills on-the-job soon after they came back from the program,
3. when the people they worked with valued their new contribution.
B. My soft skill training investments were largely wasted. There was little to no ROI once the attendees who went on such vendor training programs came back to-the-job.
I decided that we could do better.
As a result, I learned what it took to select and to create managerial and team work soft skill training programs that really increased on-the job-productivity.
This e-book shares the results that of learning with you.
I also learned that ‘traditional’ word-based text publishing no longer works for most readers.
We live in an image dominated world. As a result, this book is in a visual format.
