How to create a training culture.
Set personal development goals for employees as soon as they join the business and ensure they are measurable. Make sure the goals require effort for the employee to be able to achieve them, with defined and testing deadlines for doing so, and discuss with the employee so they understand what is expected of them. Business author Dick Grote quotes research that proves setting specific, challenging goals leads to higher performance. Making public commitment to the goals reinforces personal commitment to them and tight deadlines lead to a faster pace of work.
