T&D: Engaging Training Doesn’t Create Engagement

Engaging Jobs?

Managers create & sustain engagement via a fair Share of Meaningful Work Assignments.


Train Managers how to do that – create a balance – where it isn’t happening naturally.

Not every job can be totally engaging. Train managers on how to provide stretch assignments – perhaps delegating some of their own tasks to their subordinates.

Engaging Training?

Make it Performance-Based Training – addressing the authentic Performance requirements and context.

And don’t include Practice & Feedback on the Easy-Peasy parts of the job.


Include authentic Practice & Feedback on the Hellish parts of the job. THAT’s engaging.
