One morning while on vacation, Wendy and I went through the resort's buffet line for breakfast. We got our food, set it down at a table by the pool and then left the table for about four minutes to get our beverages and talk to a fellow guest. 

When we returned, our breakfast was being ravaged by local birds. Eggs, potatoes, bread and fruit were being eaten, tossed about and generally destroyed. Other guests were sitting nearby, but they were unconcerned and not trying to protect our food. 


A metaphor formed before our eyes. Similar to how Wendy and I did not protect our food, many organizations do little or nothing to protect their training investments.

Jim recently held a training event at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. The three-day program was designed to help instructors take their roles as trainers beyond the classroom.

"The instructors and trainers are coming to learn how to redefine learning and development to more than just being training-event based with classes and curriculum, to a package approach- not only training people but helping to make sure they actually apply what they learned and that what they're teaching contribute to mission accomplishment," Jim commented.

While on vacation recently, Wendy and I were having a mid-afternoon snack when this guy sat down with us. He introduced himself as Gary and said he was on the staff of the place where we were staying. Gary was friendly yet considerate of ‘not overstaying his welcome’ as we talked about the food, weather and island activities.

Later that day, he was at the entrance of the dining room greeting guests as they came for dinner (see photo). At the end of the evening, the staff put on a show for the guests. Guess who was in the show dressed up in a goofy outfit and even singing a song? You guessed it, Gary.



You may wonder how one gets such a neat job as this. You may also wonder just what Gary’s job is. Is he their public relations manager? Is he on the entertainment team? Perhaps he is in sales and marketing?

Wendy Kirkpatrick is a bit of a daredevil. As a child, she would swing wildly on swings, climb trees and walk on top of the monkey bars. It was only fitting, then, that while we were on vacation, she found something to get the adrenaline pumping.

The resort we stayed at had a real circus high-flying trapeze that guests were allowed to swing on in the mornings. Wendy vacillated about participating in the circus act for the first couple of days but then finally decided to do it. I, however, volunteered to keep my feet firmly on the ground and videotape her performance.

The morning of the trapeze adventure, Wendy had one lesson on a low swing before it was time to do the real thing. In order to get to the trapeze, Wendy had to climb a tall, rickety ladder. The ladder climb was harrowing, but she made it to the top. Then, with the help of two trapeze experts, it was time to fly!
