CFO asks his CEO, “What happens if we invest in developing our people and then they leave the company?”
CEO answers, “What happens if we don’t, and they stay?”
Staff development is more than a good idea. When facilitated successfully it gives your team the ability to change their approach, improve business outcomes and client relationships.
It's like a holiday away. It easier to stay at home and save the money. Or, spend a little on doing something different. Sometimes you don’t think you need to get away. My experience is when you do get back you experience clarity of focus and decision making and fresh perspective.
Who is holding your people development back in your organisation? Who has locked up the investment funds?
Start Your Business Case
When pitching for coaching, facilitation, stakeholder engagement development programs to your decision makers, make sure you outline the expected benefits realisation, the measurable benefits to the organisation, the benefits to the customer, and the benefits to you. Always look for levering and multiplying benefits.
It also useful to outline the dis-benefits of not getting in the experts to pass on their skills, experience and knowledge.
All the best.
