For several years, virtual training has been an option, but not one that many companies chose. Most preferred the more conventional classroom style of training.

The COVID pandemic changed all of that. What training was done in 2020 and the first quarter of this year was largely delivered virtually.

Now, with the COVID restrictions approaching a conclusion, what does the future hold for leadership and management training? Or all training, for that matter? Will virtual training be the default for the future? Or will companies return to in-person, classroom training?

Many strong arguments — especially economic ones — can be advanced for virtual training. But there are tradeoffs that every leader and manager should consider before opting for virtual instruction. In this episode I lay out those tradeoffs and build the case that conventional, live training in person will always be the better way to train, given that option.
