Does your organisation suffer from being ‘Too busy to get better’?

In fairness, this one isn’t that funny at all (especially as I suspect that many of you probably bang your heads on the wall trying to get people, from front-line to C-suite, to engage in Learning and Development initiatives, only to complain that they/their team/the organisation isn’t performing at its best), but it does quite nicely illustrate how Continue reading
