High Potentials

Employees on the fast track increasingly are seeking “high-potential” career tracks.

Identifying employees as having high potential acknowledges their contributions to the company, validates what they are doing, and inspires them. But it also can lead to them resting on their laurels.

Power Broadcasting

After my keynote at the Training 2015 Conference & Expo in Atlanta, it was clear that many of the leaders in charge of learning and human resources were already positive themselves.

New research from the front lines shows that not only is it possible to broadcast positive messages to raise business outcomes such as engagement, performance, and profitability, but that there is a scientifically based way to do it to more effectively get your message across

Power Surge

The beleaguered employee staying at the office until 8 p.m. or later every night, who hasn’t gotten a raise or recognition in years and yet still keeps going, is a familiar image in corporate America.

How organizations can fuel engagement and performance by helping employees renew their energy.

Training Top 125 Best Practice: Learning Dimensions at Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo redesigned its traditional in-person training program for new client associates to include a mentor, gamification, self-study exercises, online assessments, instructor-led sessions, and telephone observation time with different team members.

The Common Language of Emirati Business

Cultural exchanges can be as complex as verbal ones, and when cultures come together in business, it’s necessary to find a common language for relating to one another on an interpersonal level, in addition to communicating ideas.

Why Failure Happens

Great ideas, extraordinary teams, powerful organizations, and some exceptionally gifted and talented individuals often fail. This is principally because they haven’t even considered the possibility of failure, let alone designed an environment or processes that can help them thrive in spite of it.

The 5 Secrets of a Presentation Ninja

Even with great products, wonderful news, and groundbreaking announcements, one thing still determines if the presentation is a success or failure: the presenter.

Training Top 125 Best Practice: Project Closeout/Finish Strong at Gilbane

After implementing a redeveloped Project Closeout training course and the new Finish Strong program, Gilbane’s client survey results for the key question, “How satisfied are you with Gilbane’s performance?” showed an increase of 17 percent in the number of surveys received that exceed client expectations.

July 2015’s Top Reads

More than 11,000 business books are published every year—an overwhelming choice for busy professionals. Therefore, in partnership with getAbstract, Training brings you July’s top three business books recommended to our readers.

Listening: Empathic Versus Ordinary

Ordinary listening focuses on a program a person is describing for example, whereas empathic listening focuses on the presenter of information about the program.

The Pros of Non-Hierarchical Leadership

In addition to the pragmatism of putting the most competent person for any given project in the lead, rotating leadership means all employees eventually are given a chance to prove themselves as candidates for promotion and greater long-term responsibility.

Got Data Compliance?

No matter the size of your business, it’s good practice to have a digital data compliance game plan and a process for communicating it to your employees.

The Importance of Cross-Cultural Training for Tourism Employees

Cross-cultural training is not only useful for employees from different cultures and ethnicities to work together but it is also necessary for employees to learn how to handle certain situations that are raised by customers from diverse cultures, religions, and ethnicities.

Can a corporate wellness program be coercive?

I came across an article last week that got me thinking. The piece, “When Does Workplace Wellness Become Coercive?” resonates with me because I think I have the potential to, myself, become a coercer—and that may not be a bad thing. I have a great idea that will make our population much healthier, but many will be angry with me when I share it: I want companies to receive monetary incentives from the federal government to hire and retain only non-smoking employees.
