Successful organizations depend on training to keep them viable…but in today’s belt-tightening economy, managers are often asked to become expert training facilitators overnight. Faced with the challenges of diversity, a multi-generational workforce, and the many options made possible by technology and e-learning, even first-time trainers must be ready with the most up-to-the-minute techniques.
