In the last article- SHIFT – ‘Specific High Intensity Frequent Training’ we deliberated on why organisations fail to get the max out of their training programmes. There seemed to be more barriers than facilitators.
We shared that while observing learning at schools and by successful coaches we realised the importance of different stages in training. Like what happens before and after the training may be more important than what happens in the training period.
Unfortunately training is seen as a sprint- a one time exercise – where as it should be an on-going high frequency programme. Trainers and management has unreasonably higher expectation and think that it some magic potion that will suddenly change the work environment, attitude or approach of employees.
This led to discovery of 7 SECRETS TO MAXIMISE TRAINING ROI
