Stop Making Excuses

The Official ASTD Blog – Next-Gen Learning

This article from the American Society for Training and Develop highlights a problem in the training function that I have seen taking place many, many times in my short career.  Particularly in companies running on a lean workforce, excuses are abundant for skipping training events, down-playing the importance of performance coaching and improvement, and the misguided thinking around “We’ve been doing this for years just fine without training, so we don’t need it now.”

While this article is focused on learning professionals, I think everyone needs a healthy dose of “Stop Making Excuses and Step Out of Your Comfort Zone” sometimes. This applies not only to workplace learning, but your day-to-day job, as well.
