Based on the award-winning book of the same name, ASTD’s Telling Ain’t Training event offers an exceptional approach to transforming ineffective “telling” into training that results in long-term retention and improved performance on the job.
This event delivers interactive, practical strategies that can be implemented immediately to improve your training programs. You’ll come away principles and tools that are backed by research and real-world experience. Attendees will also receive a free copy of the companion book Telling Ain’t Training.
