I'm sure you have heard of the saying 'If you carry on doing what you are doing, you will keep on getting what you are getting'.
Behind the scenes, L&D folk are masking the resistance, working miracles with slashed budgets and doing all they can to maximise training return, doing more and more internal delivery and covering the cracks of inconsistent internal messages from senior leaders delivered to the grass root business levels.
If there is a problem, L&D can fix it, if there's no budget, L&D will find a way to make it happen on a shoe string. Need a course delivered by yesterday - L&D will create something bespoke for you! If you are reading this thinking this sounds familiar you are not alone. Plenty of senior L&D folk are having to be more resourceful with budgets, and more creative with their delivery methods to keep everyone happy. How many people do you know would have their budgets cut, double their hours yet still be motivated and driven to get the best from their employees?!
