The link attached is a wonderful primer for discussion about corporate training, and the move to a learner-directed training program. As a manager, and a trainer there needs to be strong training for success, and yet many corporations do not give the appropriate time or resources into training. It is a short term gain for a long term loss. Better training from the beginning leads to longer term success and reduced employee turnover. The more self-directed we can make our employees, the less time we have to spend “training” and the more time we can spend on development. If we were to develop a better culture of self-directed learning, where we set our new hires up for success, what would that end up looking like?
