CFO: What happens if we train them and they leave?
CEO: What happens if we don’t and they stay?
A couple weeks ago, I was on a great course in Rome with mixed people from all around the world with mixed seniorities.
It was a 3 day course on how to improve your consulting skills even more. We did practical exercises like fictitious workshops with different type of scenarios. I have never had a bad training at IBM. They are always very well planned with enthusiastic teachers. Great of IBM to know the importance of improving their employees’ skills!
Aside of great classroom training, we also spent one afternoon exploring Roma City together. People were from Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ukraine, UK, Belgium and Germany. I really like the connections you get on these trainings. The fact that we are all IBMers brings us closer as a group and have a great time together!
