Not long ago, Wendy Kirkpatrick asked if training professionals could answer this one simple question about their most important programs. Some could. For others, it was a struggle.

Wendy is back with tips on what to try when you just can't get a seat at the table. Avoid the frustration. Arm yourself with the knowledge to move beyond training and into business partnership territory.

Hear the story of how this information improved work--and life--for one trainer. Tune in to Wendy's recent in-studio radio interview with Stone Payton and Lee Kantor of Business RadioX.

Click here to hear the question and Wendy's input.

The next installment covers "The Fate of the Training Order-Taker." Stay tuned.
