Resistance to Training

Topic: Resistance to Training
Resistance to Training.
The vice-president of human resources asked you, the director of training, to develop a sexual harassment training program for the company. During your needs analysis you discover that most of the executives do not believe they need this training and do not plan to attend. You identify a couple of instances in which an executive’s behavior seems bordering on sexual harassment. You discuss your findings with the VP, who asks you to come back with a strategy for dealing with the resistance to training. Develop your response and present it in your discussion forum.
TIPS: A trainer needs to develop strategic approaches to get every ones contributions and support to implement training in organizations. This question guides you to think more diplomatic ways to convince reluctant managers to participate this training. Think innovatively how to convince them and implement the training. How do you give them the ownership of training? How do you motivate them to collaborate?
The power point slides attached to this guidance provide helpful information.
