Break up those week-long blocks: When organizations fly people to face-to-face training events, they typically want as many training hours as possible in return. This breeds a tendency towards overstuffed marathon workshops where learners spend days away from their usual work environment.
The problem is that this doesn’t match how people learn. Shorter lessons, with time in between to reflect and try out new skills in the workplace, generally work better.
By reducing costs, online training and coaching can allow for more sessions spread out over time, with any time that would have been spent in transit going towards more interaction instead.
