Thought Training:

The Next Evolution of Training

Speaker, Drew Burk

Is it possible to train an employee for every conceivable problem they will encounter on a task? 

And how many times have those problems forced an employee to make a decision for which they were unprepared? 

Welcome to problems in the modern workplace.  With technology always changing and a new generation of employees who are more educated than ever, we are finding new ways for problems to affect us.

The task specific model of training is no longer enough.  No one cares about task training.  It just isn't enough.  Just like our workplace, we must evolve. The next evolution of training is here: Thought Training. 

In this session, you will explore how task training is no longer enough and how you as training professionals must evolve with the times.  We will explore the world of Thought Training and how it can benefit our organizations. Finally, we will explore the different ways we can incorporate Thought Training into our training practices.
