Training versus Development
There is a difference between training and development. It is found in perspective. Training is the short game and development is the long game. Teams should invest in both. Experience allows us to develop over time as we learn new ways to apply the skills we received training for. Teams that neglect development through varied experience limit their team from reaching their potential. Teams that neglect training get off to a slow start. Why do teams settle for slow starts and limited potential by leaving training and development to chance? I think it’s because they think it’s easier to stumble slowly along than to be intentional. How would they know since they have only ever experienced the former?
