What Are You Measuring?

Posted by Bill Crose on September 13, 2019 at 11:33am 1 Comment

A lifetime ago, my training department colleagues and I were satisfied with training data. We cranked out the requested ILT programs plus the "flavor of the year" content, we kept a busy training schedule, and made sure the coffee was always the right temperature. When accused of not delivering effective training because the learners didn't perform as they were trained, we took refuge in our management support role and not ultimately responsible or accountable for LEARNING or productivity.…

To prepare for this session I asked ChatGPT:

What are the most common misconceptions about homelessness

There are several common misconceptions about homelessness that persist in society, despite being unsupported by evidence. Here are some of the most prevalent misconceptions:

  1. Homeless people are lazy and don't want to work: Many people believe that homeless individuals are unemployed by choice and don't want to work. In reality, however, the majority of homeless people have jobs but their income is not enough to cover their basic needs, such as housing and food.

  2. Homeless people are drug addicts or mentally ill: This stereotype perpetuates the idea that homelessness is caused by individual failings, such as drug addiction or mental illness. While some homeless people may have substance abuse issues or mental health challenges, these problems are often a result of homelessness, not the cause.

  3. Homelessness is a problem limited to big cities: Homelessness is often thought to be a problem that only affects urban areas, but it is a widespread issue that affects rural communities as well. In fact, rural homelessness can be even more difficult to address due to the lack of resources and support systems available in these areas.

  4. Providing housing and assistance to homeless people will just attract more homeless people: Some people believe that providing assistance to homeless individuals will only attract more homeless people to the area. However, there is no evidence to support this claim. In fact, providing affordable housing and support services can help reduce homelessness and improve the lives of those who are experiencing it.

It's important to challenge these misconceptions and promote a more accurate and empathetic understanding of homelessness.

Tracy, thank you for an excellent TeachAbout today. I learned a lot an am eager for the conversation to continue. Thank you also to Alice and Brent for your participation.

Here is a link to a site I found with statistics on world-wide homelessness - https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/homelessness-by-...

Here is the link to the City of Refuge website - https://cityofrefugeatl.org/

With appreciation,

Paul
