It’s what happens after the class that makes a difference in how well your team learns. In the first blush of post-training excitement, your team probably feels like they have a new lease on their work and fresh skills to boost their careers. But what happens after a month – or six? Or do they bow to the tyranny of old habits? And rightly so.
