An Action Plan for New CEOs During the First 100 Days

A good CEO must be a judicious blend of strategy and execution and a proportional blend of business, technical, and social acumen. As such, new chief executives must proportionally mix all these qualities; meet and listen to all stakeholders; create a corporate culture connecting them on one common thread; build effectives teams; craft their vision; and articulate it effectively.

The Changing Nature of Strategic Leadership

Strategic leaders propel their organizations through successive iterations of a learning process with strategic thinking, strategic acting, and strategic influencing skills. These skills create the fuel to drive the organization’s learning process and link it to the organization’s evolving strategic intent for creating and sustaining competitive advantage.

People Leader Training at BNSF

October'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 October’s top three business books recommended to our readers.

Why Your Biggest Wrong Is Always Being Right

Our culture pressures us to believe that we should know everything about anything… that to be at the top of our game, we have to be all-knowing. Always be right. Never make a mistake. So instead of pursuing answers, we spend our time pretending like we already have the answers. But why pretend to know when you can create a habit of knowing?

Using Theater-Based Learning to Change Corporate Culture

To go from a traditional public-service-oriented culture to one that was more team based and customer service oriented, ERDF-West contacted an outside consultant to help it design and run an innovative “theater-based” training initiative. In this method, problems (and solutions) are conceptualized and identified by the use of narrative, acting, improvisation, and role-playing.

Compliance Training: Critical to the Business

If employees are presented with compliance training in terms of what it means to them, the company, and their customers, it becomes more meaningful and engaging than when it is done simply to stay out of trouble.

University Hospitals’ Bridge to Your Future

Bridge to Your Future is a college preparation program that helps employees who desire to develop their careers at UH by going to college to pursue a degree or certificate. As a result, internal promotions in 2012 increased from 32 to 39 percent, equivalent to 198 jobs. Some 140 of these internal hires participated in UH’s workforce development programs.

Introducing the 27 Challenges Managers Face

Over the last 20 years, RainmakerThinking has asked hundreds of thousands of managers in organizations of all shapes and sizes, “What are the most difficult challenges you face when it comes to managing people?” Regardless of industry or job title, managers cite the same core issues: More than 90 percent of responses over the years refer to the same 27 challenges.

We Want You to Get the Job!

Background check companies want to deliver complete and accurate reports to allow the employers that contract with them to make informed decisions and place people in jobs best suited to their skills and backgrounds.

How to Make Training Stick? Keys to Effective Follow-Up

Instead of trying to apply hundreds of things learned in a training session, it’s most effective to hone in on one or two behaviors or skills and guide employees in repeating them daily in many situations for incremental success.

Workplace Strategy: Personal Preference vs. Organization Effectiveness

As highly personalized assigned workstations give way to more shared activity areas, there is a real fear by the workforce that personal preference is slipping away. This perceived deemphasizing of the value of the individual can signal the demise of established values and expectations such as hard work and the dedication that traditionally are rewarded with high walls and doors.
