Comments on B. Hesketh's (1997) article about training dilemmas associated with transfer and retention. Hesketh has argued that strategies designed to facilitate transfer might lower trainee self-efficacy. In addressing this dilemma, called the transfer-method-self-efficacy dilemma, the author discusses: (1) the veracity of the dilemma, (2) the factors that impact trainee self-efficacy, and (3) approaches for increasing trainee self-efficacy.
