The corporate training gap

Why “traditional” learning & development is no longer relevant.

Corporate Training Gap

In a world where binge-watching a series until 3 AM is more appealing than attending a day-long training session, it’s clear that the traditional corporate training playbook needs a rewrite. Gone are the days when business professionals were content to sit through endless slides of bulleted lists and cheesy stock images, narrated by someone who sounds like they’re reciting a microwave manual.

You know what we’re talking about, don’t you? Sitting in a training room, the lights dimmed, with the only source of excitement being the occasional flicker of the projector bulb? Or watching some e-learning course on the laptop, and amusing yourself by counting the bullets on the trainer’s slides, to see if they conform to the magic rule of six (taken from Presentation Skills 101)!

And the sad thing? Traditional corporate training methods are still all around us. But they’re as engaging as watching paint dry… in slow motion… while listening to elevator music. It’s a one-size-fits-all approach that fits no one, and is as irrelevant to our true needs, as milk is to apple juice. Traditional corporate training is lacking soul.

So, things need to change, right? Because learning should be as engaging as scrolling through your favorite social media feed, as relevant as wearing a shoe size that actually fits YOU, and as fun as popcorn with your favourite movie. Woohoo!

The key to learning is fun

Science says learning sticks better when it’s fun, but you don’t need a PhD to know that. Ever remember the lyrics to a song you heard once at a party but forget the steps in the company’s fire evacuation plan? That’s edutainment for you.
