I have another management myth posted on Stickyminds. This one is about training. “Management Myth #9: We Have No Time for Training” is up on the site.
Now, I have to admit, that when I was a new manager, I fell for this myth. Oh, I knew enough to make sure that we had lunch-and-learns. I knew enough to make sure we learned from people inside the organization. I knew enough to buy books. But it took one of my testers, Meredith, to poke at me to go to a Star conference because she thought we were being too insular with our testing. She was right.
You know what’s really funny? Today, I’m keynoting at another Star conference. That’s because I take my own advice and don’t stop learning and training myself.
So, read the article. Then plan your self-improvement!
Meredith, I appreciate you for nudging and poking me all those years ago. I’m not sure I ever said that to you. It’s time I did!
