I like using quotations in my delegate manuals. Delegates feedback that they like them too. My favourite training & development quotations are as follows. What are yours?
"Train people well enough so they can leave; treat them well enough so they don't want to"
SIR RICHARD BRANSON
"I am always ready to learn, but I do not always like being taught"
SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL
"The great end of learning is not knowledge but action"
"Training that brings about no change is as effective as a parachute that opens on the first bounce"
"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful after all"
"Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon"
"You don't have to be sick to get better"
"It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the wholly curious of inquiry"
"You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself"
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so"
