A shocking statistic was produced by a government agency that found that businesses that didn’t invest in business training were more likely to close than businesses that do invest in training.
Because training is so important for individuals and the economy at large, part of our mission here at Johnson Fellowes is to share information that you can use to train and develop yourself and your business. When training other people Suzanne suggests that you use the 4MAT structure. Tell people why it’s important, give people enough background so they know what you’re asking them, give them a chance to practice, and to see how it works and answer any questions.
On this site you will find, what we hope are, useful articles about Business Growth, Leadership, Team Development, use them for yourself and feel free to share them with others – most of the pages have links to share on social media channels.
Just in case you’re wondering about the credibility of the training material on this site, where does it come from? Who developed it? So here are a few words about the content creators here at Johnson Fellowes.
