So, Not Everyone Is Afraid of Level 4 … But Are You?

March 21, 2018

Last week, I somewhat cavalierly declared everyone afraid of Level 4. To my pleasant surprise, I had a variety of respondents who commiserated with me, but stated that they are not afraid, and they are taking actions to get to Level 4. 

For example, I spoke with Travis, a consultant in the Washington, D.C. area. He said he works with his clients to see the importance of focusing on organizational outcomes when planning and executing training and performance improvement initiatives. While he said that sometimes it’s like he is speaking a foreign language, he continues to try. 

On the Kirkpatrick Partners Facebook page, Joe said that it’s like the emperor’s new clothes. Many people realize that training produces little in the way of results, so they don’t want to expose this sad reality.
