Employee Performance Training, Is it Worth It?
It would depend upon who you ask and the method employed. Indeed, organizations that benefit from performance improvement programs start as hopeful disciples, but eventually become evangelists. Unfortunately, not all programs get long-term results. A frequent complaint among executives is not that improvement programs fail to get results, they do get results; however, the results are not sustained. The explanation for this difference…spaced repetition.
For whatever the reason, there is a frequently held misconception regarding how performance improvement should occur. Many executives have concluded that improvement programs should be a “one-and-done” process. However, there is no evidence that supports this methodology in any of life’s rigors. Whether driving a car, playing an instrument, learning math or language arts, they all take sustained repetition to achieve proficiency and mastery. The great masters of sports and entertainment spend countless hours performing repetitive exercises to hone their talents. The repetitive process is paramount in becoming “best-of-breed.” So why should individual and organizational improvement be any different?
