The Best Training Is No Training
Why do we train, and why do we train so much? We know better. We train to compensate for bad documentation. We train to teach workarounds to bad processes. We train to fix culture and morale problems. We train multiple times to ensure that everyone “gets it.” What about the old adage, “less is more?” In this session you will learn why, in many cases, training should be the LAST resort, not the first. During this talk, we will look at several key principles that can reduce the need for training, while significantly improving performance. This isn’t the end of training by any means, but rather a major rethinking of its role in professional growth and performance.
