I speak to a lot of different companies and government bodies about training on a daily basis. Each organization approaches this topic differently, but they tend to fall into two categories when it comes to employee development: reactive or proactive. While there is always a need for “as needed” training, the most successful L&D organizations are preparing their training plans well in advance. As such, I consistently coach my clients to be proactive in identifying current and future goals for their skilled employee base. This is the reason New Horizons developed a resource that helps organizations align their training plans to the actual needs and wants of their employees.
