Lesson #3: Mission-critical programs require a post-training support plan
Birds need to learn to fly quickly to catch food, avoid predators, and thus survive. Fortunately, most of our training is not quite so mission critical. In some cases, though, it is. For example, health care and military training could save or cost lives depending upon how well it works. How confident are you that every one of your training graduates will be able to perform to standard?

Lesson #2: Even Confident Learners Need On-the-Job Support
Have you ever had a dream that you were flying? Both Jim and Wendy have. Some are exciting. Some are a bit scarier, with fear of falling or crashing. Being able to imagine the sensation of flying made the nest of swallows on Jim and Wendy’s front porch all the more fascinating to them.
As the flying lessons continued over a few days, Jim and Wendy were impressed at the level of support the parents provided for their fledgling flyers.
