How Do You Strengthen the Future of Your Training Career?

January 30, 2013

his week, Jim shares a personal experience as the foundation for discussing the question, “How do you strengthen the future of your training career?”

“Last year, I delivered a one-hour talk to 100 training professionals at a large technology corporation. My message focused on the need to become one with the business, not isolated from it. Almost to a person, they said, ‘We are seen as vital to our corporation. Look at the new facility they built for us.’

Six months later, I received an email from one of the attendees. She said that 75 of the people I had spoken with that day were no longer employed.

As an internal or external professional, how do you avoid that same fate?”
