Training Leaders & Managers today are used to training staff and NOT getting support from employee's direct management in regard to training reinforcement.

Ayear ago, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer ignited a firestorm of controversy when she eliminated the company’s telecommuting option. Best Buy and Hewlett Packard soon followed suit with their flexible work programs.

 Working from home can drive employee engagement and performance, but companies first must provide telecommuting training and reinforcement.

Understanding principles in an employee handbook or an e-learning program can be difficult, but not because the content is hard. It’s difficult because it’s just so boring and detached from employees’ day-to-day lives. Some companies are finding storytelling can bring to life learning content that now exists only on the page or screen.

Employees not grasping your trainers’ lessons? The content may need a kick-start from storytelling. Illustrative anecdotes go a long way to helping learners get the point.

Once Upon A Time In Training

Employees not grasping your trainers’ lessons? The content may need a kick-start from storytelling. Illustrative anecdotes go a long way to helping learners get the point.

Home Improvement?

 Working from home can drive employee engagement and performance, but companies first must provide telecommuting training and reinforcement.

Characteristics of a Winning Team

Five traits most commonly shared by winning teams are: unity, consistency of execution, synergy, exceptional performance, and strong leadership.

Now’s the Time for Environmental Training

The ability of environmental training to deliver benefits rests on the development of a vibrant partnership between the learning and development, environmental, and business sectors.

Removing Obstacles to Achieving Corporate Goals

So the first of the reasons we fail to achieve our corporate goals is that we often attempt to implement them without following the best practices of change management. If a business is to grow and develop, it must consciously evaluate its failed goals against these current best practices.

Give Your Employees Tools to Ditch the Pitch

Pitches don’t hold customers’ attention. They are not persuasive. We have to stop making sales pitches and presentations. Instead, we must create persuasive conversations.

VAAA’s Project Management Fellows Program

The VA Acquisition Academy PM Fellows Program is a selective professional development initiative that leverages a learner-driven model on a blended platform to create holistic learning for aspiring mission-critical project managers (PMs). To date, 21 percent of Fellows received promotions in the first year of participation in the program.

Training Sector Is a Busy M&A Market

The professional training sector has benefitted from a variety of recent favorable trends, leading to an acceleration of mergers and acquisitions activity as larger operators begin to take a more prominent role in a fragmented industry.

It’s a Noisy World

An interesting thing happened during the years companies pulled back on training: The level of content and information coming at employees from all directions didn’t pull back with it. Instead, the noise only grew louder. The competition for attention became fiercer. The disruptions, priorities, responsibilities, and demands piled on at an alarming rate.

Harnessing Energy Microbursts in the Workplace

Some 93 percent of respondents to a survey said they are interested in improving their energy levels throughout their day. A study shows that performing a single microburst of physical activity when feeling tired (i.e., spending five minutes walking up and down stairs, at an easy pace) can triple energy levels.

Engaging Training Participants

Research shows that the more closely the subject matter is related to a participant’s job, the higher the levels of engagement, retention, and post-classroom application.
