In my part of the world, summertime is very brief. Consequently, I’ve noticed a trend in my consulting work: corporate training schedules mirror the traditional K-12 educational model. When it comes to leadership development training, companies essentially “take the summer off” because many employee vacations are crammed into the space between the Memorial Day and Labor Day holidays.
This brings on an interesting phenomenon: there’s a sort of leadership training back-to-school rush that happens in late August. My phone starts ringing as human resource managers and training directors begin to think about their 3rd and 4th quarter training plans.
