Tip #998: Stop Training Your Employees!

The best thing you can do if you want your business to fail is to stop training your employees.

If you don’t train your employees:

  • Productivity will plummet
  • Quality will suffer
  • Customers will leave
  • Employee morale will drop
  • Employee turnover will increase
  • Revenue will crash
  • Business resale value will be nonexistent

The next best thing you can do if you want your business to fail is to keep training your employees if:

  • The training content is out of date
  • The training is poorly designed
  • The trainer has no training as a trainer
  • The training is lecture-based, not participatory
  • The trainer does not know how to engage participants
  • The training does not result in behavioral changes

As a matter of fact, only train your employees if you want your company to succeed, have a trained trainer, and you:

  • Care about serving your customers and meeting their needs
  • Want to encourage innovation
  • Need a revenue boost
  • Would like to achieve production and service goals and deadlines
  • Feel that quality is important
  • Are concerned about the business’s public image

So, it’s your choice: don’t train your employees and eventually go out of business- or train your employees so your business thrives.

P.S.   Does your company support employee training?

May your learning be sweet.
