Most of us have the technology capability in our living rooms to watch a whole season’s worth of TV shows in one day and to watch other shows whenever we like via on-demand channels and our DVRs.

We watch TV programs sans commercials “on demand” and have instant access to information 24/7 via the Web. Today’s employees want that same flexibility when it comes to training.

A Training reader sent me an article about a study done at Washington community colleges, which showed that more students drop out and fewer get a passing grade when they take a class online than when they take it in a classroom.

E-learning can be an inexpensive alternative to classroom training, but does it yield the same results?

Presenting the X Factor with Personal Websites

Training individuals to create an online presence that they own and maintain provides the opportunity for them to stand out, create differentiation, communicate personal value, reinforce personal branding, and make them memorable to potential employers.

Accelerate the Self-Leadership Challenge

Self-leadership is not self-absorption; it involves looking inwardly to contribute outwardly. As self-leaders, we take personal responsibility and accountability for being effective in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environment.

Developing Underwriting Talent at Nationwide Insurance

Can the Apple Watch Aid Employee Wellness?

Do you think about how the wellness of your workforce contributes to productivity and employee on-the-job happiness and comfort? Could wearable technology, along with walking and smoke-free initiatives, be a helpful tool?

Repetition: The Key to Mastery

In music, in art, in athletics, in surgery, in writing software…you name it. The destination called mastery is on a road called repetition, and on that road there are neither short cuts nor express lanes. It’s good old-fashioned roll-up-your-sleeves hard work. And the 10-5-3-1 Mastery Plan is not just any kind of repetition; it’s constantly improving repetition.

Supercompetent Speaking: Projecting Confidence as You Speak

Confidence isn’t about deliberately attracting attention to yourself. Confident people direct their focus and attention on others, which makes them attractive to others. So go out there certain in the knowledge that you’re helping others.

Championing a Multi-Generational Workforce with Visual Communication

The great thing about visual communication is that for all of the generations, it has been used repeatedly throughout their lifetime. Video allows trainers to deliver a single piece of content in a format that is accessible and digestible. It can be optimized per learner, by supplementing imagery with text, audio narration, and the like, which is likely to be appealing regardless of generation.

Complex vs. Complicated

While it is not always possible to make life really easy for our colleagues, making life easier—or as less complicated as we can—needs to be the intention of each and every leader and employee. If our goal is to create a seamless experience for the customer, we must ensure we are doing all we can to build a similar experience internally.

How to Deal with Difficult People

It may seem overwhelming when considering what we need to do to please a difficult person, but the tenets of good customer service always prevail.
