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."

A Positive Approach to Modern Living

By Liggy Webb, Director, The Learning Architect
Modern living is becoming increasingly challenging with a stress-related illness affecting more and more people. The challenges we face—including finding purpose, defining ourselves, and managing stress—are numerous and complex. The requirement to be more flexible and manage change is becoming increasingly important. A positive personal strategy can help each individual to cope better and improve resilience and confidence.

Leading Virtual Teams

By Beth O’Neill, Senior Consultant, Interaction Associates Does the following scenario sound familiar? Rich is leading a Product Development team with members in Salt Lake City, New York, Zurich, and Hong Kong. To help focus the team and set goals, he convenes an online Web meeting. Most team members are joining via the Web and on the phone—except for Rich and three colleagues, who are in the same room in the New York office.

Developing Your High-Potential Millennial Employees

By Brad Karsh, President, JB Training Solutions Are your Millennials prepared to be your company’s future leaders? Every day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers reach the age of 65. This is going to keep happening every single day for the next 18 years. This startling statistic has chills running down the spines of HR professionals as they think about the organizational challenge of managing this drastic demographical shift in the workforce. Engaging and retaining the newest crop of workplace talent is a daunting challenge, but it has never been more important.

6 Steps to Sustain a Coaching Relationship

By Stephen Monk, Director, PwC Advisory People and Change Successful organizations recognize the strategic advantage of increasing employee value over time and the subsequent benefits for both the enterprise and individual development. Transferring capability to build competence and commitment is key in helping people be more productive and agile in hopes of sustaining their value over the long term.

Fostering an Ownership Mentality

By Michael Rosenbaum It’s difficult to think of clipboards as an innovative training tool, but a visit to a local tire store reminded me that even the most basic tools can deliver strong impact. In this case, the training system employed a roles-based management (RBM) style, a deceptively simple management training process employed by Discount Tire Company. I encountered RBM while researching the company for my book “Six Tires, No Plan,” a biography of company founder Bruce Halle.

How to Maximize Trade Show Exposure

By Hank Moore, Corporate Strategist The number of companies participating in trade shows increases each year. While sales objectives are most common, trade shows also may be behavior, product, distribution, or marketing oriented. Booth exhibitions are viable and cost-effective sales tools to:

Game-Based Learning for the Corporate World

By Julie Brink, Director, viaLearning For generations, games have been used to teach concepts, skills, and knowledge. Think Yahtzee, Monopoly, and math; Scrabble and spelling; Mastermind, Qwirkle, and strategy; Clue and problem solving…the list goes on and on. Games are challenging, interesting, and engaging. And with the ever-enhancing technology landscape, games are more immersive than ever. Individual or massive multiplayer online games have grown exponentially in the last few years, and projections only show gaming consumption increasing.

Training: The Solution to the Expat Challenge

By Valérie Berset-Price To succeed internationally, companies often have to rely on expatriate professionals. Expatriates, or “expats,” embody the corporate culture of the company, representing a bridge between the headquarters in the United States and the foreign subsidiary. Sadly, up to 75 percent of U.S. expat assignments fail, according to “Carry a Chicken in Your Lap or Whatever It Takes to Globalize Your Business,” by William Ayres and Bruce Alan Johnson.

Learning to the Power of Two

Students are more than empty buckets that can be filled with new knowledge. Every trainee already has a rich fund of knowledge, both conscious and subconscious, as well as various social skills. The trainer who can access the source of knowledge held by the trainee can tap into an unexpected treasure of knowledge, pride, and responsibility and create an increased level of identity both at a personal and corporate level.

Invest in Your Development

By Aimee Windmiller-Wood, SVP, Training and Program Development, Fierce, Inc. I am a lifelong learner, as many of us drawn to the training profession are. When you are responsible for training and developing others, it is vital that you continue to invest in your own learning and development. In my journey as a trainer, I’ve continuously learned and honed many skills that have positively affected both my career and the careers of others.
