1. Don’t embed the learning through an ongoing continual process

Learning and development is all about changing habits, and we all know that changing habits requires more than a once-off event. Indeed, research shows it takes between 18 and 254 days to change a habit (not the 21-28 days that you see so often. So if you want to fail at delivering high-quality effective training then you want to make sure that you don’t embed the learning and make it habit forming.

Training is not an Event

Tuesday, 13 December 2016 14:51

Organisations and leaders accept that a key competitive advantage available to any organisation lies in the skills and capabilities of its employees. It follows that leaders and organisations recognise the importance of investing in training and development initiatives. Unfortunately, this is rarely done well. Indeed, some research has suggested that 80% of training expenditure is wasted[1]. That’s particularly concerning in times of tight budgets and attention on ROI.

I think Aileen’s ability to deliver instructions to groups of different levels is fabulous. Her assistance with debriefing and pulling it back to behaviour is also very helpful.
