Welcome to AltrexPS blog. My intention is to share ideas – resources – and information – from the wonderful world of training and performance consulting.
These are challenging times for this profession as organizations struggle to stay afloat. It’s no secret that one of the first areas many organizations choose to cut back or eliminate is the training budget. First to go is the budget for people skills (mistakenly referred to as “soft” skills). This is a very quick short-term fix. We’ll explore the consequences and alternatives in future blogs. My mantra: Don’t downsize the development of your people!
One short-term consequence is the impact on professional trainers – coaches – and consultants – who have built up a practice in helping organizations with performance and organizational development issues.
So let’s begin the process of sharing!
