the next generation of training
Once considered a burden, training is now viewed as a benefit in recruiting and retaining the best talent. Historically training brought most of its criticism upon itself. Programs were largely outdated, monotonous, boring, and, at best, neutral in impact. The cost of doing it, in many cases, actually outweighed the cost of avoiding it. But something began to change as Millennials made their preference for personal and professional development a priority in many organizations. It was realized that people got better when the training got better. It was realized that training became embraced when it became engaging. The truth is that training is one of the only functions in an organization that can simultaneously increase performance and decrease turnover. This is why so many industry leaders are now doubling down on L&D. Through working with hundreds of trainers, professors, instructors, and coaches, we've been able to study the methods and mechanisms of some of the best developers of talent in the world. We've used these findings to modernize the design and delivery of onboarding and ongoing training. Our approach is to engineer training events and regimens for our clients that are deployable within their financial and human resource capabilities, measurable in impact on the organization, and enjoyable for participants. The Next Generation of Training teaches how to invest in improvement in a way that makes the cost look minimal in the shadow of its impact.
