Avoiding training doesn't negate the need for it.
You may have felt the hammer: often the first thing cut is training. Budgets are tough, productivity is leveling off, and turnover feels stabilized by a weak job market. So senior leaders, looking to get ever tighter on the budget, cut training dollars.
People leave organizations because:
1. They don't like their boss, and
2. They aren't trained what they are expected to do
You can get ahead of both of those problems - as a leader get the training that you need.
If your company provides it, great. If you're in charge of it, bring it in. If your company does NOT provide it, care enough about yourself and your people to get it yourself.
