Many people have had bad experiences with workplace training, which has led them to be resistant. That can be a problem if you want to engage in training for yourself or your team, and you’d like your organization to support it financially. If the mere idea of training makes people bristle, you have an uphill battle. Here are some of the most prevalent negative mindsets I’ve encountered about learning in the workplace and some thoughts on how we can help shift them.
Continuing Education Units (or CEUs) are often required to maintain professional certifications. If you’ve dedicated the time, energy, and attention necessary to obtain your certification, you certainly don’t want to lose it because you didn’t keep up with the requirements. In most cases, if you fail to meet the CEU requirements, you’ll have to requalify for the certification, which may include taking another exam. To avoid that kind of unnecessary stress, it’s important to properly manage and track your continuing education requirements.
