How much money did your company burn last year?
Or was it more than 1,000,000 EUROs?>
Every company I have worked with has problems with performance.
The team that is always arguing.
The leader who dictates and creates a fear culture.
The sales person who knows it all.
So what do most companies do?
They try to fix the performance issues with training.
But training alone doesn’t work!
Well there are lots of reasons.
First of all, as I mentioned on a previous Monday Motivation, there are 4 key elements to performance.
And most training only covers 2 of these – knowledge and skills.
But in reality…
It’s often poor attitudes and the habits that form from these attitudes that cause performance problems.
And what’s more…
The training content itself is directed at the logical part of the brain. But it’s the limbic system (subconscious brain) that is responsible for all lasting change in people – not the logical brain.
So that’s a bit like trying to teach your team to learn in Chinese when none of them speak it!
Then of course there’s the honeymoon effect
We all know it.
You go to the training.
You have a great time.
You come away full of good intentions.
And what next?
There are 3,000 emails in your inbox.
You go back into your familiar work environment.
Everyone wants a piece of your time as you’ve been away training for 2 days.
You don’t activate what you learned, and the training is wasted.
And don’t ever forget the Ebbinghaus Effect!
What on earth is this?
Well, Herman Ebbinghaus did some valuable research into memory in the late 19th Century.
And what did he find?
People’s ability to recall information decreases rapidly.
In just a few hours, more than 60% of new information you have received is forgotten!
And after only 1 month you have forgotten more than 90% of what you learned.
Like I said, your company is burning money!
What about the staff who leave?
You invest in an expensive leadership course for 20 leaders.
3 months later, 4 of them have left.
And as they walked out they door…>
So did your investment!
Fortunately, there are solutions to most of these training problems.
Here’s my top tips that I incorporate into all of my programmes to ensure maximum return on investment for you and your company:
So are you ready to take action and help your company to stop burning money?
