There are many approaches and problems that can undercut programs meant to grow your employees:

  1. Flavor of the day initiatives;
  2. Training for training’s sake;
  3. Training not relevant to the organization and culture;
  4. Leaders and managers not walking the talk; and
  5. Failing to get buy-in up front before implementing new initiatives.
