The question is where does our responsibility start and stop regarding motivating employees? Some organizations provide training as motivation for their employees and some even provide “motivation training” for employees. Others argue that it’s not the responsibility of the training organization to impact employee motivation. Whatever your position, it is important that we fully understand our role. An important lesson I learned early in my career was a simple formula to drive business impact – ‘Talent + Effort = Performance’. The lesson is that it’s not enough just to have skills: To be exceptional at what you do, you also must put forth maximum effort. So again, what role does L&D have in supporting that formula? Training alone can’t maximize an individual’s performance, but it can lay the foundation on which performance is built. We start that process by understanding the business needs and the human element required to achieve them. We then assess the skill gaps within our organization and put together solutions to close those gaps.

Are we really in the talent management business? From where I sit, we’re really in the “business improvement” business, constantly looking for ways to help our organizations groom our learners to better meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Learning leaders who get this will truly set the pace for the industry. What do you think? Doug Harward is CEO of Training Industry, Inc., and a former learning leader in the high-tech industry.
