Program Dinosaurs

What programs are you using that have run their course? Sales training, customer service, management processes?

I have led training for years and years. Every year the organization I worked with would reuse the old program that was going to work this time. We tenaciously hung on to it in an effort to avoid admitting defeat. It would have been best to cut our losses and cut the program. But no.

Now understand that if the program is working for you, then by all means work it until it’s dead. Whether it’s Six Sigma, Sales Force, FISH!, CWT, Good to Great, DiSC, Sandler Sales or the “flavor of the month,” I don’t care what it is called.

If it has run its course, let it go.

The program no longer produces results. You are still hanging on to it convinced it will resurrect your sloppy team. Maybe it worked in the past. But the past is history… and needs to be buried.

Move on!
