Don’t Switch off the Training Lights
Don’t Switch off the Training Lights

In our customised programs at a client’s place, we identify three to four themes and messages that we repeatedly pass to the people to firmly get entrenched in the minds of people. Once at a client’s place, people expressed that we need to skip those messages, particularly team working as the company had built good working teams and we need to move on to something else.

While reluctant to do that, we heeded to the request of people and stopped talking team working in our programs. Over the period of next six months, we saw a systematic deterioration in team working among people and more so with teams that were already working effectively as teams. People got disoriented, teams got fractured and egos started coming into play once again.

The management of the company asked us to start reiterating on the team aspects of the people as they could feel teams disintegrating. It took us a lot of time and effort in building those very teams again. We felt that all those programs that we did and talked of team working found a residence in the subconscious minds of people. Thus, team working had a bearing on most things that they did consciously and subconsciously.

We have thus come to a conclusion that training is at times a difficult choice to make for the trainees and trainers. At times it may look redundant, repetitive and old as a concept but it has an impact in the minds of the trainees both at the conscious and the subconscious levels. Its impact can not be measured maybe in quantifiable terms but the absence of it may prove to be catastrophic for the organisations. Like Muhammad Ali said, “I hated every minute of training. But I said don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion”.
