Clive on Learning: It’s not enough to be a professional, you also have to act like one
Good points on acting like real professionals, not just “order takers” when developing training/learning
You wouldn’t hire an interior designer only to inform.them that you’ve already chosen all the colour schemes and furnishings; you wouldn’t engage an accountant and then explain to them the way you wanted them to process your figures; you wouldn’t employ a fitness trainer and then tell them what to include in your workout; you wouldn’t buy a dog and then insist on doing all the barking.
So why, then, do we continue to encounter situations in which line managers tell the guys from l&d exactly what they want in terms of learning interventions, with the expectation that the they’ll simply take those instructions and run.
