Description

Despite all the explicit emphasis on ""bottom-line"" results in the workplace, a great deal of confusion exists about what constitutes valued accomplishment, achievement, and the connection between training and performance. This book is aimed at untangling some of the myths and outright fallacies that organizations often propagate. Following on the wildly popular ""Telling Ain't Training"", ""Training Ain't Performance"" is a whimsical and entertaining exploration of human performance improvement. From its first chapter, ""Show Me the Money,"" to its concluding chapter, ""Hit or Myth: Separating Fact From Workplace Performance Fiction,"" readers of this book are gently guided toward a solid understanding of performance and how to use their newly gained knowledge for real organizational value.
