“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” -- Anon
Many Learning Professionals/Trainers are guilty of failing to “sharpen their axe”, which if done, would enhance their competence and capability to deliver value. This needless failure is responsible for the poor outcome of learning interventions usually visible in design, development, delivery, impact and evaluation of learning.
Businesses are weary of pumping lots of resources, in time, money and manpower, and expectations on lofty promises of training interventions that yield little to nothing in terms of relevant outcomes. Business leaders want to see results and learning professionals must rise to this challenge or fizzle out of relevance.
