Return on Knowledge

I once heard a business owner tell a consultant that he preferred not to offer training to his employees. “What if I train them and then they leave?!” he said.  I never forgot the consultant’s reply: “Worse still…what if you don’t train them and they stay?”

What a great perspective on investing in sharpening skills for ourselves and others.  Investing in people seldom creates anything other than goodwill, gratitude, and (go figure) upgraded skills.
