So I hope these resolutions resonate with you! • Spend more time with people we can learn from. Some call this networking; I call it keeping the battery charged. It motivates me and helps me stay fresh. There are some very bright and influential people in our industry. • Share more of what we know. My 25 years in the training profession has taught me many lessons, and I should be more open about sharing with others by writing more, speaking more and being more available as a resource. • Stop wasteful spending. Everyone in training is guilty of spending company money on things that are not completely necessary, like training programs that do not show true return to the business. We’re stewards of company money, and we must focus on what’s necessary. • Volunteer more. Being a training professional is about helping people. Share your knowledge or lend a hand at a school. • Exercise the mind more. To stay sharp, become a student of our industry. Learn more about the best practices and innovations that help companies improve. From where I sit, I’m one of the luckiest people around. I work in an industry that allows me to go home at night and rest peacefully, knowing I’m doing something that’s designed to help others. While you’re thinking about your own resolutions, be thankful for what you have. It’ll help you be gracious about what you want. Doug Harward is CEO of Training Industry, Inc., and a former learning leader in the high-tech industry. E-mail Doug.
