Speaker: Tim Connor

Topic
Every day thousands of organizations waste money on employee development because it isn’t effectively integrated, inspected or reinforced. Every day millions of employees sit through training programs that they know are just the flavor of the month and they don’t take ownership of the material covered or apply it for the long term. Every year thousands of training executives and managers deliver training programs that just don’t get the job done for a variety of reasons.

During this session Tim will focus on one vital areaundefinedWhy don’t people use what they learn? There are two key factors that must be understood if you want your training to ‘stick.’ The physiological and the psychological reasons that contribute to why people either don’t or can’t learn or why the learning only lasts a few weeks.

Learning Objectives:

  • To cover the key reasons that cause people to bring closed mindsets to learning experiences
  • To show how you can overcome these mindsets
  • To get senior management to embrace and support the initiatives necessary to get long-term results
