World View: Focus on Nigeria

By Lexi Rifaat, Global Marketing Coordinator, Aperian Global
The history of what is now Nigeria goes back thousands of years, with evidence indicating that people have lived in this area of Africa since at least 9,000 B.C. Since gaining its independence from Great Britain in 1960, Nigeria has been ruled by a series of military coups interrupted by brief periods of democratic rule. Now a young democracy with a very recent constitution, Nigerians are still dealing with many years of political and social confusion.

Trainer Talk: The 30-Year View

By Bob Pike CSP, CPAE
USA Today recently celebrated its 30th birthday. That edition of the newspaper contained both a backward view for 30 years and a forward view. I read with a great deal of interest the forward view—especially when it started talking about education.

Training magazine Events: Exploring Three Impossibility Frontiers

By Tony O’Driscoll, Executive Director, Duke Corporate Education
As we set our sights on the Training 2013 conference in Orlando, we wondered what guidance Walt Disney himself might have for us.
What insights could Walt provide to help guide our unending quest to help organizations and the individuals working within them become the very best? Time and time again we kept coming back to a single quote of his: “It’s fun to do the impossible.”

Soapbox: The Information Battlefield

By Nate Kelly, Senior Strategist, Cerner Corporation
In 1970, Malcolm Knowles identified six characteristics of adult learners that became—and remain—the backbone of many Training departments’ learning strategy.

How-To: Power Up Your Brainstorming

By Ross Tartell, Ph.D., Learning & Development Manager – North America, GE Capital Real Estate
You need new ideas. The pressure is on and the competition is tougher than ever. When the rate of external change exceeds the rate of internal change, it’s time to power up your brainstorming to generate creative ideas.

How to Create Lasting Change

By Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA
Here are my suggestions about how to make change last:

Make a decision to change one thing.

An excellent way to improve your current situation is to initially accept things the way they are. When you know where you are, you then can make thoughtful adjustments.

Stuck on Leadership

By Bob Parsanko and Paul Heagen Adam was stuck. The work to this point had been almost easy, familiar—and largely without obstacles. Three years into his first job as CEO, his place in life felt natural. He was just drawing on what had made him a success all along—talent and drive, a dash of charm, but more than anything, confidence.

Change Top-Down Leadership with “I Intend to…”

In Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, site of one of America’s greatest military setbacks, the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe sat in wait. Within the tight confines of the ship toiled a crew plagued by low morale and poor performance. In a remarkable turn of events they soon would lead the fleet in most measures of combat effectiveness and create more future leaders than any other submarine.

Serendipity Brought Us Fast HR and Gamification

By Greg Greunke, VP, Client Services & Operations, ThinkSmart Just before leaving the Walt Disney museum I caught this quote from Bill Anderson about perhaps the most innovative man who ever lived. “Nothing was too precious for Walt to change, even his own ideas.”
