Have you heard this “training is just wasted time” complaint from learners and leaders? Sadly yes. Most training and learning programs are time-wasters. They suck the life out of learners’ energies, time and enthusiasm - consequently, we cause them to fail in their work. The single biggest reason is our compulsion to “force train” or “force feed” ALL of the content we feel they must learn. 

In this webinar you will learn:
  • The concept of abstraction and how to use this technique to train only on what is needed
  • The steps to focus on the highest impact content for the biggest returns
  • Case examples on how to design a template to abstract ideas for time-saving, productivity-boosting and performance enhancing learning
  • Get a copy of the “10 Tips on Creating Time-Sensitive and High-Value Learning”
