You have probably read a ton of different training and development articles during your career of company owner or manager. These readings are simply unavoidable because they represent one the most important supporting pillars of every successful business. However, you have probably found yourself unsatisfied with all of those articles because, in the end, they turned to be ordinary promotional texts for certain products or services. This can be really stressful and annoying. It seems that you simply cannot rely on them.
On the other hand, promotional messages do not have to be bad at all. You can still use them and turn them into your advantage. How? It’ nothing easier. You have to learn to read them in the right way. Something like when Neo learned to read Matrix codes. If you succeed, you will have an advantage over the competition.
So, what training and development articles tell us? In the first place, they say that specialized trainings are necessary in today’s business. This message is not just another part of promotional slogans or ads. This is a fact. If you still want to skip this step, then you should not be mad at the destiny or world’s injustice because you failed. As a manager, you should be the first person in your company who want to implement trainings and courses. This is, as some people like to say, the best possible investment. Use your investment budget for this strategy and enjoy in the bright future. This is a rule number one. Invest in the skills and knowledge of your workers.
The second thing that is also very important is planning of your activities. It would be wrong if you decide to organize courses and trainings before you even thought about your goals and expected results. Every activity and every single project have to be focused on realization of those goals and results. Because of that, you should not purchase or organize any training that has only general plans and general methodology.
You should observe your company as a living organism. Or at least let WalkMe to that for you.It is similar to other companies, but it is different and unique at the same time. This is a reason why you have to choose only those training methods that can improve your company, with a focus on all its specificities and differences. All those training and development articles that can offer only general instructions and solution should be ignored.
