Purchasing Learning Technologies

Given that trainers are in the education business, how “educated” are we about one of our most significant purchases: technologies for learning?

Continuing Training magazine's exploration of awareness of learning technologies, we look at survey results on how trainers prepare for and participate in the purchasing process.

Content Under Pressure

Game 7 of the World Series. Home team is down by one run, with a runner on third. Bottom of the ninth. Two outs. Two strikes. A bead of sweat trickles down the batter’s cheek. He tightens his grip on the bat and shifts his stance slightly. His eyes narrow. Some sixty feet away, the pitcher stares in, then winds up, leg kicking high.

Today's employees often feel like they work in a pressure cooker that is ready to explode at any given moment. Some organizations are implementing training programs to help their employees better manage that pressure and improve their performance in the process.

Training For the Worst

Emergencies happen. They can happen to anyone, anywhere, any time. Every week, somewhere in the world, there is an extreme weather event. Sometimes Mother Nature just rises up, and there you are in the middle of an unavoidable situation. Some situations are more predictable than others.

Disasters - whether manmade or the result of nature - are bound to occur, no matter how finely tuned a business is. Resilience training is key to making people more capable of bouncing back quicker and emerging stronger from these shocks and stresses.

Training For the Worst

Many Will Lead, But All Will Follow

Just about everyone wants to lead something, but even the highest-level leaders have to follow someone at some point. A good leader is coachable and ready to gain both knowledge and skill from others, whether the other person is a subordinate, the boss, the board, the customer, or the shareholders.

Essential Traits for Building Expertise

The real-life story of British mathematician Sir Andrew Wiles tells us how factors such as “burning passion,” “grit,” “self-control,” and “deep practice” play vital roles in the development of scientific expertise of the highest order.

Just4Me Training at CareSource

CareSource University (CSU) developed a three-pronged training plan to address the need for wide-reaching communication in support of CareSource’s launch of its private insurance product, Just4Me, on the Health Insurance Marketplace. As a result, CareSource enrolled 29,800 members and captured 26 percent of the Ohio market share.

Is Reference-Checking Training Necessary?

A skilled manager with the proper training knows how to ask questions that elicit telling responses when checking a job candidate’s references.

How Committed Is Your Team?

Far too many CEOs are blind to commitment problems in their organizations. Many leaders who sense morale problems often avoid them, worried that they reflect poorly on their leadership. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are four steps that can empower leaders to address commitment problems.

What Every Manager Can Learn From a Party Planner

Entering an organization is like joining a party that has been going on without you for years. A considerate host plans ahead, finding ways to maximize people’s chances of interacting. Likewise, smart workplaces recognize that it is the responsibility of the “host” to establish subtle techniques for integrating coworkers from the moment of their arrival.

WU Sales Excellence

As part of Western Union’s Sales Excellence program, the L&D team devised a gamified “learn to earn” initiative in which sales correlated with employee learnings were nominated to be recognized.

Lessons from the Sales Coach

The biggest mistake salespeople make is treating all customers like their needs are the same. Salespeople need to be trained to focus on what’s important to the customer, not what’s important to them.
