We have all worked at those companies, whether it was your first job at your hometown’s ice cream stand or even your current role, where your manager inevitably utters, “We don’t really have a training process, you can just learn by doing.”
While everyone in the room was excited to be there and be a part of the team, no one really knew what their role was or how they were supposed to help the rest of the team. I started to ask some questions about what things looked like in the past and quickly realized there was a need for training and development.
Those who are resilient and adaptable to problems as they arise are going to be stronger problem solvers. And I challenge you to take this same sentiment and approach to your employee training. Focus on progress, not perfection. In the long run, resilience and grit will get you further.
