L&D A-Team

A former police officer, actor, lawyer, recruiter, military leader, CIA leader, and other “non-traditional” Learning professionals are all part of the Learning and Development (L&D) team at Talent Plus, an international management consulting firm headquartered in Lincoln, NE.

Non-traditional hires can build strong, innovative Learning and Development (L&D) teams, bringing a wealth of skills and perspectives that can help L&D transition from a developer and deliverer of learning to a coach and consultant for the business.

Millennials expect a lot from coaches. Catered to by parents, this generation also expects their employers to be empathetic to their causes, concerns, and world views.

Most advice about managing Millennials focuses on the wrong things, experts say—often meaningless differences between people rather than the massive number of things we have in common, namely, that we all are individuals who want to grow and feel valuable.

Retaining Top Talent

Many companies still cling to outdated notions of what drives their employees in order to determine the incentives they provide.

4 Key Factors Contributing to the Increasing Complexity of Change

Change can be enticing, liberating, galvanizing, promising, and/or rejuvenating for those with an accommodative mindset. On the other hand, it also can trigger feelings of foreboding, vulnerability, intimidation, unjustness, and/or retribution for those with an apprehensive disposition.

Increasing Women in Leadership Roles

Stop focusing on the numbers. Instead, critically evaluate and modify your recruitment and promotion strategies for promising female leaders.

When Training Helps the Company, But Not Employees

Should corporate training programs be viewed solely as a way to equip employees to serve a company’s own needs, or should such training programs also provide employees with the opportunity to advance in their career and earn more money, so their lives can be improved, too?

Want Leaders to Improve? Make It Their Idea!

One of the most frustrating challenges in leadership development is getting leaders to take their insights from learning or feedback or experience and actually change for the better. One breakthrough solution: engaging leaders themselves in deciding exactly how they will change.

Creating a Continuous Learning Culture

Continuous learning is best practiced in a culture that encourages daily rituals that personalize the process of reviewing what you’ve done, and then planning incremental improvements.

Turbulence Is an Opportunity, Not a Threat

Publilius Syrus once said, “Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.” The real leaders emerge during a storm. And real leadership skills emerge during a crisis.
