#BGIM Learning and Training Special Edition 1

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday


Over the next ten editions of #BGIM, a special Learning & Training series dubbed #LTS, is going to be undertaken. The rationale is that having been encouraged to work hard and give our best always, HOW CAN WE DO SO? Hence, the need for Training to equip us in the relevant skills in our field of work.


Before any training can take place, there needs to be a TRAINER who is willing to impart and train the Trainee in that field of work. Work as used in all of our #BGIM series refers not only to your regular paying work but to all tasks, assignments, duties, that require you put in a certain amount of EFFORT for accomplishment, whether in the workplace, in the community, at school, at home, in church ⛪, mosque, a social gathering or in the nation.

Training is very important. And anyone with the knowledge and skills SHOULD BE READY to impart it to others to HIS OWN BENEFIT. Yes, I said you train for your own benefit. You don’t train just to the profit of the trainee but yourself. You may ask, HOW?

In life, we are to move forward in whatever we do. We progress from home to neighbourhood to town to city to region/ state, nation then to the whole world. If you don’t train anyone, when the time comes for you to move forward you would be SADDLED. You can’t move a step ahead because nobody can replace you behind. You want to go but you can’t go because your initial job behind cannot be performed by any other person.

The simplest example is this a big brother would decides not to teach anyone of his siblings how to use any of the Electrical Appliances at home 🏠. E.g. Home Theatre, Computer, Printer, Microwave and Toaster. Such a brother can never go out for a trip for say one week because Daddy and Mummy won’t have anybody to operate the appliances. He might have even an Impending Big Assignment outside town but he can’t commit to it because he hasn’t ‘covered his back’.

So it happens to all who have the knowledge and skills but consciously REFUSE to IMPART it because they want to be the only people to be called upon always. It is a notion that if you HOARD skills and knowledge, you cannot be disposed off. But ask yourself, do you want to stay at your current level for the REST OF YOUR LIFE?

If NO, then you need to make a CONSCIOUS effort to train others so that it can release you to move forward. You might not necessarily train them with all you know but with the requisite skills and knowledge to act in your stead anytime you aren’t around. And that’s the mark of a successful professional.

So #LTS asks “Who are you TRAINING?


TRAINING Releases You.
