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?

Supercompetent Speaking: Adding Flair to Your Presentations

You don’t have to be Steve Jobs or Bill Cosby, but try to inject some flair into your presentation to bring it to life. Even if your audience remembers only a few percent of your speech the next day, you want it to be the few percent that inspires them to make changes in their lives.

Which Bird Are You? Taking Flight with the DISC Styles

Many of us tell customers that our employees are empowered to do whatever it takes to make the customer happy. In reality, the employees are afraid of making decisions and being reprimanded for doing what, in the manager’s eyes, was a wrong decision. Here are some suggestions to give employees the right tools to make the right decisions and, therefore, feel empowered.

Change: Starting from the Top

More often than not, resistance to change starts with the superiors and managers at an organization. If top management doesn’t buy into the idea of implementing change, then there is little chance change will occur.

Are You Relevant?

Organizations need a way to connect to the customers they are trying to reach. Every product, brand, and cause presents an opportunity for connection, but what will a person choose? Facing a staggering range of alternatives, people will connect with what is most meaningful to them. What seems most important. What is most relevant.

If Cash Is King, Then Reducing Employee Turnover Is Queen

A tribal casino and resort organization discovered ineffective mid-level managers were creating undesirable work environments and driving a 40 percent turnover rate. The solution involved implementing training for not only mid-level managers but senior-level leaders, as well, to send a message of the importance of the training.

Continuous Learning and Constant Feedback

If you want to grow quickly in your career or personal or professional life, you must acquire two great habits: continuous learning and constant feedback.

Great Leaders Rely on Great Trainers

There is no formula for being a great trainer, but there is a passion for helping others succeed. It’s not coincidental that this passion is also what helps define an exceptional leader. Great trainers lead, and great leaders train.
