Last year, I reviewed over 200 appraisals and learning plans. This helped me confirm a hunch: most employees don't have learning plans. They list the training and conferences they would like to attend.
Whose fault is it? It doesn't matter. We need to move away from the notion that training alone is going to help us progress.
I want to get us away from the mental model that each employee is entitled to $ per year for training. Take on the challenge to transform your training list into a real learning plan and let me know how it goes!
