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."

10 Tips for Leaders to Make Your Meetings GREAT!

By Mark Miller, Vice President, Organizational Effectiveness, Chick-fil-A Meetings matter. If done well, they multiply our time, increase our productivity, tap into the collective wisdom and creativity of the group, yield better decisions and better results. Let’s face it—most of the meetings we attend are not the model for productivity and efficiency. Done poorly, they are a colossal waste of time. Here are 10 tips to help your team master a few basics for empowering your meetings, starting today.

Training: Mandatory or Not?

By Dan Cooper, CEO, ej4.com A large organization was talking about expanding its initial entry into e-learning and made a statement common among trainers: “We’re not ready yet to make our training mandatory.” This usually means they have tried to require training in the past and received enormous push-back from learners and their managers. So they’re twitchy about the whole idea. Typical causes for the push-back include:

The Engagement Problem

By Rohit Bhargava In 2007, global professional services and recruiting firm Towers Perrin conducted a survey of nearly 90,000 employees in 18 countries around the world. The aim, as it was every year, was to spot some trends in how satisfied employees were with their jobs and what they were thinking. Unlike many other surveys, this was global and reported back on countries individually in the results. What they learned was concerning: The global workforce is not engaged. on the job.

Soapbox: Consultative Leadership

By Jim Hornickel, Director, Training & Development, Bold New Directions
There are as many schools of thought about leadership as there are leaders. But in the larger view, one can say there are two basic types: leading “at” and leading “with.” And these two opposite models or sets of comprising actions can be called “Command and Control” and “Consultative Leadership.”

Supercharged!

After reading the 100 Top Young Trainer nominations we received for 2012, I was awestruck by the commitment, passion, multitasking abilities, and willingness to help others demonstrated by these training professionals. If only I could bottle their energy, take-charge manner, and ability to get things done—I would be a very wealthy woman!

Be Your Own Accountability Mentor

By Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA
I’m curious: How do you judge a “productive” day as such? Is it defined by the number of e-mails you sent and received? Perhaps how many meetings you attended? It could even be how “early” you arrived home for dinner with your family.
Before you leave work, for just the next five work days, stop and handwrite on a 3x5 notecard basic things about the day, such as:

Training Today: CEO Challenge: Hiring and Retaining Talent

Talent remains a toppriority for CEOs, according to PwC’s 15th Annual Global CEO Survey. Some 53 percent of global CEOs and 46 percent of U.S. CEOs see the availability of key skills as a threat to their growth prospects. Indeed, 29 percent of CEOs said they were unable to pursue a market opportunity or have had to cancel or delay a strategic initiative because of talent in the last 12 months.

The Search for Self

By Amy Wu
Like many people, Prudential LLC Manager Nicolo Carpaneda has a few blind spots. Prior to 2011, his No. 1 blind spot, he reveals, was he often talked a lot—perhaps too much—during meetings.
“At work, I am a social person, so I used to go to meetings and frequently fill empty space with chatter,” says Carpaneda, who is based in London and a member of Prudential’s Momentum Leadership Program, a select in-house talent training and development program. “I wanted to be liked by others.”

10 NFL Coaching Principles

My grandfather, George Halas, was one of the original founders of what is now the National Football League. He played professional football himself for 10 years and coached for 40.

My father’s family included educators, musicians, and military men. Growing up in the

The Bottom Line on Leadership

By Margery Weinstein
Any organization with a comprehensive training program has a leadership development curriculum. These programs include everything from conventional classroom learning with guest speakers to high-tech simulations and lavish retreats. There also may be mentorship thrown in, as well as multiple job rotations. Despite the well-rounded curricula, many companies don’t do enough to determine whether any of it is working. With budgets still tight in an uncertain economy, companies need to ramp up their efforts to better assess their leadership coursework.

World-Class Leaders

By Margery Weinstein
Your future leaders’ creativity and problem-solving skills have been honed in leadership courses, but that doesn’t mean they are ready to use those skills to further your company’s place in the world. With emerging markets in Asia, South America, and other areas of the world, your workforce needs to have an understanding of and interest in cultures beyond the city or town they are based in.
