In the broadest sense of sustainability, we work together with our clients to help their organizations thrive. We get asked often to define ‘sustainability’, and the answer is ‘all-encompassing’. That’s because sustainability really can be applied to almost anything in life.
Sustainable organizations are characterized by balancing your business strategy with people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnerships using a systemic approach, focused on short and long-term goals, within and around its eco-system. Every organization can contribute to building a sustainable future for its entire eco-system of the company, its people, customers, suppliers, and community.
Many companies report limited impact of leadership development and professional skills training. In fact, the training dollars invested are staggering ($359 Billion globally in 2016 according to an HBR study) and miss the mark of delivering employee performance improvement. HBR (Oct 2, 2019) reported on 50 organizations:
- 75% of 1,500 managers surveyed from across 50 organizations were dissatisfied with their company’s Learning & Development (L&D) function;
- 70% of employees report that they don’t have mastery of the skills needed to do their jobs;
- Only 12% of employees apply new skills learned in L&D programs to their jobs; and
- Only 25% of respondents to a recent McKinsey survey believe that training measurably improved performance.
The gaps include training effectiveness, purpose, timing and content of training.
Do you want more measurable impact and exceptional performance for your investment?
Here’s the brain science behind what it takes to create impact: Cognitive processing and Knowledge-Retention Rates tell us that more than 90 percent of the information can be forgotten in as little as a month unless there is applied retention, spaced retrieval practice and transfer opportunities brought nearer to the learning experience. ‘What is learned is rarely applied’ unless you move the skills transfer closer to the on-the-job actions.
You may be asking: How will my organization benefit from Green Training Associates’ consulting? Our GTA Performance Learning Ecosystem™ is a proprietary methodology combining selected elements for each solution, designed for your organization, based on a thorough needs analysis. We can work with either your custom learning needs or our tailored learning solutions. We improve retention and skills transfer close to the on-the-job actions with personalized, self-directed and group learning experiences in an open lab environment.
In other words: We create the measurable impact and exceptional performance you expect by developing the right capabilities for the right audience at the right time. Confidence comes with capability!
