Training versus Human Nature: It Doesn’t Have to Be a Battle

September 26, 2018

It’s a startling statistic for L&D professionals: approximately 85% of training graduates fall prey to a myriad of factors that influence them to do something other than what they learned during training. These include:

  • On-the-job environment
  • The direction of their supervisor
  • Influence of peers
  • Availability of resources
  • Time pressures, and the basic human nature to do what is most convenient at a given time.

Jim Kirkpatrick and Wendy Kayser Kirkpatrick offer a plan to help overcome these challenges. It doesn’t have to be a battle. Read this article from Training Industry Magazine to learn how to win when it feels like training versus human nature.
