Today's Twenty something will respond to the training even if he/she wants to be self-employed. By making people agree to pay back the cost of training if they leave you give the company enough time to make its case. Management training isn't a fantasy and can be taught.

Hmm. Not sure trying to obligate someone who already may have one foot out the door is a step in the right direction, Marilyn. While I can certainly empathize with the desire to recoup money invested in training, this may just further turn off twentysomethings from the idea of management in your company. The reality is that even those with the goal to leave and start their own business may be delayed by the realities of life choices: expenses, family, and the need to support that family. Some may discover management is indeed a good fit after training and some time in the trenches. Investment in that training without strings attached is an opportunity cost but will likely bring more return than the status quo or a program that will only discourage more people from taking part for fear they will limit their options.
