INDUSTRY INSIGHT: Hard Skills Are Only Half the Price of Entry

Organizations have been paying only half the price of entry when moving managers through the leadership pipeline. According to a 2016 Gallup poll, only 18% of managers demonstrate an aptitude for effectively managing others. This means a staggering number of companies are functioning far below potential.

If 82% of managers aren't effectively leading their people, consider how many companies aren't effectively operating their businesses. Tom Roth, President and Chief Operating Officer of Wilson Learning Worldwide, writes: "When history points to great failures and great successes of companies, it often points to the character of the leader."

2013 Best Practices and Outstanding Training Initiatives

BEST PRACTICES
BB&T Corporation: Leadership Development Program (LDP)
Twice a year, a class of Leadership Development Program (LDP) associates relocates to BB&T University for nine months to participate in the four phases of the program. Associates choose one of two concentrations to specialize in: business banking or specialized corporate functions. Program framework and highlights include:

Training Today: The Lost Leadership Capability

By Samantha Howland, Senior Partner and Executive Training Director, DSI
In an era of unprecedented uncertainty, the ability to think strategically has emerged as an indispensable skill in helping leaders and organizations navigate change and sustain growth. Yet, for those charged with identifying and developing strategic thinkers, there is no clear path.

On the Road Again

By Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA
Looking at your calendar for the month, you may have a trip (or two) already planned. While being “on the road” is good for business, it can take its toll on your health, relationships, and well-being. Here are three things to consider as you get ready to board that flight:

Legacy of a CLO

By Lorri Freifeld
Ask Ernst & Young Chief Learning Officer Mike Hamilton if there were anything he could do over again in his career, what it would be, and he just shakes his head. “I can’t imagine a better career than I’ve had,” he says. “I have traveled around the world. I had the opportunity to work with really talented people, many of whom view the world very differently than I do. My roles at Ernst & Young have always excited me and stretched me. I am not sure one can ask for more in a career.”

Talent Tips: The Path to Real Learning

By Roy Saunderson, Chief Learning Officer, Recognition Management Institute
I will never forget my Psychology of Memory course—no pun intended.
Being a mature student when I started university, I fell into the normal throes of prerequisite courses in my first year, which required taking science and math courses missed during high school.
Not fully appreciating all the prerequisite courses assigned to me, once they were completed, I vowed to make my second year of university a far more relevant learning experience by choosing exactly what I wanted to learn.

Trainer Talk: Resolve to Involve

By Bob Pike CSP, CPAE
With risk goes reward. That truism hit home when I was invited to make a presentation at an international conference in Amsterdam, Holland. The presentation was to be simultaneously translated in three languages. I was told by the organizers to expect about 100 people in each of my four sessions on four different topics: leadership, problem-solving, training techniques, and marketing strategies.

How-To: Manage an Underperformer

By Brad Karsh, President, JB Training Solutions
Working with an underperformer ranks as one of the most difficult challenges any manager will face. Whether your underperformer consistently produces “meh” work, makes the same mistakes again and again, or just feels like dead weight on the team, poor performance must be addressed immediately. Great managers and leaders take the time to work with these employees to transform them into major contributors and higher-level employees. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind when managing an underperformer:

Call Them No. 1...Again!

Verizon picked up the No. 1 spot on the Training Top 125 for the second year in a row, earning its induction into the Top 10 Hall of Fame in 2014 after securing positions in the Top 10 for the last four consecutive years. No. 4 Farmers Insurance likewise punched its ticket to the Top 10 Hall of Fame next year. Top 5 newcomers Jiffy Lube International, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, and CHG Healthcare Services nabbed Nos. 2, 3, and 5, respectively.

Soapbox: Building Career Courage

By Bill Treasurer, Founder, Giant Leap Consulting
I am a big ’fraidy cat. From my knee-shaking fear of heights to my tongue-stammering fear of authority figures, I live a life that seems imbued with fear. You may find it surprising, then, that I am a professional courage-builder. My personal mission, and the mission of the courage-building company I founded a decade ago, is to help people and organizations be more courageous.

Soapbox: The 10 Executive Toughness Fundamentals

By Dr. Jason Selk
I have had the privilege of serving as a performance coach to some of the most successful businesspeople on the planet, including scores of individual Fortune 500 and 100 executives. I use a methodology I call Executive Toughness, a mental training program that helps people boost their leadership performance and achieve truly ambitious goals.

Bite-Size Is the Right Size

By Sebastian Bailey, Ph.D., Co-Founder and President, Mind Gym We live in a culture of instant updates and short attention spans. We struggle to spend seconds away from our smart phones, never mind days out of the office in training. But that doesn’t mean personal development must sit on the back burner. From sermons to ancient Greek plays, piano lessons to TV documentaries, we have learned things in bite-size chunks for thousands of years. Why should training at work be any different? Bite-size Is Cheaper and More Effective
