Differences in competencies between training staff and L&D staff


Incresingly more and more companies have an L& D department, and the training staff move to become L&D staff.
iI would like to hear from anyone who has invested in staff to enable them to undertake this shift in roles and in particular, i would love to know what competencies were developed to move them for a pure training to an L&D role. Thank you

One Response

  1. Different behaviours
    Not a scientific response, but when I was doing some 2nd interviews for L & D Consultants recently, the “trainers” I interviewed seemed to have a body of knowledge that they were keen to pass on to others, (teachers?) whilst the “L & D” applicants seemed to want to help people do their jobs better. Their actual work behaviours, and the stories that they told, were very different, based on this different perspective. Thus, the focus of the L & D people was much more on listenning and providing solutions. Perhaps a controversial view.
