I sometimes marvel at the number and diversity of training programs that commercial life sciences professionals are exposed to.
Situational Leadership. DISC. Crucial Conversations. Coaching Skills. Selling this. Influence without Authority that. The list, the acronyms, go on and on – as do all the outlined steps and principles contained in each program.
Can anybody really remember all that stuff – let alone apply it in the moment of need?
Or are we overloaded with training program flavor-of-the-month?
As someone who makes recommendations of training programs to my life sciences clients, I seriously do wonder about this. And I wonder how you – people in the life sciences training community (trainers and vendors) – feel about this as well.
Are we so overloaded with information that we become constipated at the point of interaction?
Please share your experience in the comments. How do you, and your colleagues, deal with remembering, and synthesizing, and applying all these programs? Are there strategies you have found to help with the overload?
