Why should I pay extra for training? No law obligates me and I got training from the distributor or manufacturer I have bought my machine from.
You know nothing more than any other client of that distributor or manufacturer. Which is your competition.
There is no industry left that is not saturated with mediocre businesses. These business ensures statistical truths, such as 95% of new businesses fails in the first five years.
Effective training helps a business build and sustain a long-term edge in a market. Businesses that fail to train their staff properly are more likely to be a flash in the pan, and disappear when the next disruptive technology or economic shock hits their industry.
Change is constant.
Modern day business is in continuous flux. With the current pace of change, adaptability is the key quality that will keep your head above water and your business profitable.
Adaptability means being able to recognize changes and new trends as they happen, and then internalizing the new knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to cope with the demands of the new landscape. And that means training yourself and your employees well.
Your competitors are well-trained.
It’s highly likely that the most successful clinics are training their staff and investing in their future.
If you’re tight with your training budget or slow to get yourself and your employees up to speed, you’ll lose ground to your competitors. They’ll simply be selling, delivering and serving better.
Better industry image.
When you train yourself and your employees effectively, the industry will know about it. You are much more likely to become an authority in your arena, and there are many benefits to being seen as a leader in your field.
Training events are a great place to foster a “stakeholder” mentality in your employees, and to extract valuable ideas.
Training environments can be incredibly stimulating. Don’t be surprised if you and your employees end up generating key insights or creative solutions to long-standing problems during your learning.
Your training is too expensive.
Training is expensive. Professionals look at training as an investment that is key to their success. They know it’s vital for themselves and employees to learn, practice, and master necessary skills, and they are willing to invest a fair amount of money and time to acquire these skills and knowledge.
As with every industry, the most desirable skills and knowledge are rewarded the highest and are therefore the most expensive. There are various reasons why an industry leader will make time and energy available to teach others his/her skills and convey his/her knowledge. But at the end of the day we all need to put food on our tables, and we all direct our efforts to what compensate us best for our time and energy. These highly skilled professionals know the value of what they have to offer society and like everyone else expect a fair compensation for it. They have already made the investment in time and money to become an achiever.
If the highest compensation a trainer can get for his/her skills and knowledge is a minimum or average wage, do you think that that trainer has much to offer? And why is that trainer not using his/her skills and knowledge to improve his/her own situation?
The only thing more expensive than training is BAD training. It only buys you low productivity, errors and injury, low client satisfaction and lots of frustration.
I do not see how training can increase my clinics profitability.
Imagine if all of your employees were as proficient at their role as they could be. Every part of your business stems from the people in it. Profits and performance are directly linked to the efforts of the people working towards this. Quality training improves your team’s communication, confidence, skills and knowledge. It increases customer satisfaction and boost profits.
I have years of experience, there is nothing new you can teach me.
We might learn things quickly, but we often forget things at the same rate, and sometimes we need to be reminded of the things we’ve learned.
Invest in yourself today. Invest in your education, knowledge and skills.
Your pathway to success starts here.
