Note: By “Off-site Learning,” we mean getting an education in Humanology® at a location away from the company. “Off-site Learning” can be conducted locally or at a distance.
Compared to “On-site Learning,” “Off-site learning” requires more time away from work. Consequently, at first glance, “Off-site Learning” does not seem to be the most favorable option for a company with employees learning Humanology®.
However, a surface analysis is misleading. A key benefit of “Off-site Learning” is its effectiveness. Being removed from one's work environment tends to clear the head, increasing one's learning potential.
The increased effectiveness of “Off-site Learning” is often touted despite never having been properly quantified. Effectiveness varies among individuals and depends on many variables including subject matter, length of session, time of day, day of week, distance from work, the presenter, and what is to happen after the learning session.
Note: A conflict of interest exists. “Off-site Learning” is typically promoted by facilitators because it allows them to assemble multiple clients within a given metropolitan area, making it more lucrative than conducting several individual sessions at various locations.
Depending on the particulars, the costs associated with “Off-site Learning” can make it more expensive. Moreover, by definition, “Off-site Learning” requires more time away from work. Still, if done properly, the increased effectiveness of “Off-site Learning” can tip the scale from the “On-site Learning” alternative.
