Development Planning at Discover Financial Services

Edited by Margery Weinstein Discover Financial Services describes its strategy for development as “comprehensive and across all levels of the organization.” It is driven directly from Discover’s company-wide People Goal: Increase employee development and engagement while retaining top performers.

Strategies and Tactics for Teamwork at The Edge

Imagine navigating a tiny boat through a sudden, violent storm at sea—with winds roaring at nearly 100 mph and waves soaring to 80 feet—to not only survive, but triumph over formidable competitors in one of the world’s toughest ocean races. It’s a feat claimed by the crew of the AFR Midnight Rambler, overall winner of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart—the most treacherous and tragic race to date in the six-decade history of Australia’s iconic competition.

How to Close the Deal?

By Kristy Westfall Moyer, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide I recently started the process of buying a new car. I can hear all the moans out there already! No one likes this process. As a sales and service trainer, my job is to inspire and train people on how to create legendary experiences for their customers to increase loyalty and close sales. I have been teaching these concepts for so long that they now are part of my DNA.

Game-Based E-Learning Produces Results

By Bryan L. Austin, Chief Game Changer, Game On! Learning I’ve had the good fortune to spend most of my career in the corporate training space, primarily working for e-learning solution providers to corporations and government organizations around the world. One of the biggest challenges of e-learning has been that employees often don’t complete the training because they don’t find it engaging, relevant, or worth their time. Three of the most vexing questions for talent development professionals when launching training initiatives online are:

From Learning to Performing (Part 2)

By Neil Shorney, Director, Naturally Sales Ltd. Congratulations! You’ve just found the perfect training program for your employees! It covers everything they need to know, and just the right level of detail, and the trainer is great. Sure, it was expensive, but you get what you pay for. Well, sort of... What you’re paying for is most likely three days of a trainer’s time in a classroom, a nice lunch for your team, and some course materials to take away afterward and put on the bookshelf in case they’re ever needed.

Dialogue and Empowerment Trump Action Planning

By Christopher Rice, Fraser Marlow, and Mary Ann Masarech Don’t expect an initiative to do a human’s job. Engagement is a personal equation, and managers must play a role in helping each employee solve it. Your best managers already understand this, as do many of the leaders we’ve interviewed. They’re not waiting for survey data to shape what they do. They don’t make engagement a once-a-year priority, distinct from what they do the rest of the time. They always manage their teams with an eye toward results and engagement.

Localizing E-Learning: The ABCs of Voiceover and Subtitling

By Ora Solomon, Vice President of Sales and Operations Imagine you just had a meeting with your company’s chief learning officer. Your mission for 2013: Expand your corporate e-learning and training programs to include employees in Mexico and French-speaking Canada. And to really keep you on your toes, your CLO has given you only one month to develop and initiate your localization strategy.

Best Buyメs Virtual Training Event

By Margery Weinstein Best Buy historically has kicked off drive times and holiday seasons with a large-scale, offsite training event. Although these events have been branded differently throughout the years (as conferences, summits, training forums, etc.), the components that make up the events have remained consistent.

Training in the Science of Pricing Can Enhance Profitability

By Kevin Mitchell, President, Professional Pricing Society Everyone in business knows it’s all about maximizing profits. But nothing has as much impact on the bottom line as one thing: pricing. What’s the best approach for setting pricing and maximizing profitability in competitive marketplaces? In an era in which pricing is set by corporate culture, can be dictated by sales forces, and is reactive to the hyper-accelerated pace of price matching in a global market, what impact does a new, smarter, more strategic approach to pricing hold for businesses?

How to Improve Your Brand and Workplace Performance

By Jason Forrest In April 2012, I had a branding session to discuss everything our company is and isn’t. For a full day, we discussed our values, strengths, and passions. We talked about the unique qualities that separate our brand from others. It’s an important exercise for any business, but it’s important for individuals, too.

The Energy Industry Takes on Training

By Clara Lippert Glenn, President and CEO, The Oxford Princeton Programme With the U.S. unemployment rate continuing to hover just above 8 percent, it’s surprising to learn that many companies are having significant trouble filling job openings. According to last year’s survey by staffing firm Manpower Group, more than half of the nation’s employers can’t find qualified workers—and are actively looking.

From Learning to Performing (Part 1)

By Neil Shorney, Director, Naturally Sales Ltd. In the early days of my career, I attended a lot training courses: about time management, the energy industry, 3G telecommunications, how networks work…And I gained a lot of information from these courses. I still have most of this learning—it’s in my attic, just in case I ever need it.

In Search of モStickyヤ Management Training

By Bruce Tulgan Last June I found myself talking through an age-old challenge with a longstanding client, the director of training at a well-known insurance company: “What do we need to do to make our management training really stick?” Indeed, we have been trying to answer this question since we first began offering management training programs in 1995.

Top 20 Things to Negotiate for When Terminated from a Job

By Suzanne Kleinberg So you have been terminated. Assuming you haven’t been fired for just cause, your (soon-to-be- ex-) employer has handed you with an envelope with a termination package. What do you do now? Firstly, do not sign anything until you have had a couple of days to get over the shock and humiliation. Don’t succumb to pressure from your employer to sign it during your termination meeting. They are not allowed to coerce you to agree to anything. It would not be binding as you are signing under duress.
