A Word From Our CEO, John Pembroke

Training Is for Today, Developing Leaders Is for Tomorrow

The best staff education programs include both technical and leadership learning.

You’ve probably heard the story about the employees who were riding bicycles with square tires. While they were working incredibly hard to go bump-bump-bump down the way, someone ran alongside them and said: “Hey, I have round wheels. Can you stop a moment and try them?” The employees kept pedaling and answered, “No, we’re too busy pedaling.”
Lots of times this anecdote is told simply to illustrate a lack of openness to innovation. I think it is also valuable to consider it from an employee learning perspective.  
The employees pedaling bicycles with square wheels can be of any age—young people coming out of college or longtime staff members. They have a certain set of skills and are willing to work hard to put those skills to work. But they don’t have the technical skills to help them do the next job that will be needed to move their company along—they have no skills in riding with round tires. They also lack the soft skills needed to respond well to the changing world around them—to be open to different tires or to lead their team to change tires.
