Quotes on Why Training isn’t a Panacea

  • Training is, of course, super important but it’s not a panacea, and it won’t solve systemic dysfunction and underlying issues.
  • Please don’t ice the mouldy cake. It might look beautiful on the outside, but when you cut into it, the cake is not fit to eat, and it’s gone off!
  • If you’re spending money on high quality or any training at all, you really don’t want to put that money down the drain. 
  • You want to think more about your training and your training strategy.
  • Please also bear in mind, it’s not fair to ask for endless proposals. That’s exhausting for us as professionals. I particularly find it excessive.
