Supercompetent Speaking: Emergency Speech Surgery

You've prepared for weeks to dazzle an audience with your brilliant 45-minute speech at a big conference...and then...minutes before show time, an apologetic organizer approaches you. He explains that because they got a late start and an earlier speaker went on longer than expected (Mortal Speaker Sin), they can only spare you 20 minutes - so you’ll have to cut your speech short.

Mobile Content: The Big Picture

By Chad Udell Mobile learning is a large area unto itself. Just like e-learning, m-learning can be delivered in many different ways. E-learning delivery modes include traditional narrative and presentational learning delivery, scenario-based training, soft skills training, games, and software simulation. Although m-learning is less mature than e-learning, it, too, can be delivered via differing modes.

Getting Good Advice

By Hank Moore, Corporate Strategist Selecting the most appropriate consultant for your company—optimizing expertise—is the greatest challenge facing a decision-maker. It’s lonely at the top. Certain kinds of objective information cannot come from within your own camp. True expertise is a rare commodity, and the successful company utilizes it on the front end, rather than on the costly back end. There are the seven plateaus of advice given to business leaders, with No. 1 being the base level of advice and No. 7 being the most insightful:

Kaizen = Change for the Better

By Mark Graban andJoseph Swartz The word, “Kaizen,” is translated from Japanese in a number of ways, most simply as “change for the better.” Breaking down the word:

Developing Great Communication Skills

By Dean Brenner Have you ever been in the company of one of those rare souls who can clearly articulate a point? Have you ever met that person who can artfully harness a meeting by clearly stating what the group is struggling to express? Have you ever seen that person who walks onstage and absolutely owns the room the moment they open their mouth?

Planning Your Training Company’s Future

By Peter Yoon, Managing Director, Berkery, Noyes & Co., LLC It is never too early to start establishing concrete long-term goals for your company. For many C-level executives, this involves contemplating the eventual sale of their business. With the recent robust level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity involving corporate and professional training companies, this seems to be an appropriate time to put what may be an unfamiliar process into proper perspective. What’s Happening   

Turning Check-In into a Second Chance

By Kristy Westfall Moyer, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide Do we ever get a second chance to make a first impression? Are first impressions the only ones that count? Have you ever realized that you judged a person or situation completely wrong at first? Moreover, what if what you were certain was an accurate impression turned out to be the complete opposite of what really was?

Creating Conditions for Breakthrough Results

By Chris Grivas Teams are the way work gets done in business today. The potential of any working group is defined by its members—not just individually but collectively. Whether live or virtual, results are as dependent on team members’ ability to work together as on their individual skills and abilities. CEOs and managers prize “team players” because they know that in today’s collaborative world economy, an organization’s success, and even survival, hangs on its ability to tap team potential.

8 High-Impact Collaboration Opportunities

By Ron Ricci and Carl Wiese Collaboration technology has maximum impact when it addresses your top business priorities. Here are eight of the most common areas where collaboration solutions—such as video and Web conferencing, customer care, social software, unified communications, messaging, and mobile applications—are delivering results. 1.

Last Word: It’s 1:50 p.m. Where Are You?

By Peter Post
It’s 1:50 p.m., and you’re starting to feel uncomfortable. The meeting you’re in was scheduled for 1 to 2 p.m. But there is no end in sight, and you have a meeting scheduled for 2 to 3 p.m. with your team to finalize a project that is due at the end of the week.
Back-to-back meetings are a scourge to businesspeople. Managers share their experiences and frustration with back-to-back meetings with me, so I often offer this scenario as a problem-solving exercise in business etiquette seminars for new hires.

Talent Tips: The Answer Is Blowing in the Wind

By Roy Saunderson
As we scour the Internet, study research journals, and review the latest leadership and learning and development books, it is easy to get a little overwhelmed about where to focus and how we can best make a difference in the workplaces we serve in.

World View: Focus on Peru

By Dr. Neil Orkin
Peru is a country with tremendous natural resources, especially metals such as gold and copper. It is a land famous for the advances of the Incas, who had one of the most sophisticated cultures the world has known. With a population of 29 million and a location next to one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, Brazil, Peru is a land global organizations need to watch.

Trainer Talk: Focus on the Fundamentals

By Bob Pike CSP, CPAE
Often in this space I write about “excellence”—what it takes for trainers to shine at what we do. I meet thousands of other trainers every year who, like you and me, always look for ways to be incrementally better at our work, to be like the professional baseball players who get three hits out of every 10 times at bat instead of 2.75 times out of 10. (The difference in pay between these two, by the way, is about $10 million per year!)

Training magazine Events: From Learning as Usual to Learning Unusual

By Tony O’Driscoll
Relationships, Reach, and Robots. These three discrete words may have a particular meaning to each of us prior to attending Learning 3.0, but after the conference, I hope they mean a whole lot more to those of us who spend our days designing, developing, and delivering learning.

Soapbox: Lights, Cell Phone, Action!

By Tita Beal
What if you lack the funds, time, and software to produce a multimedia training extravaganza…but you want the excitement of a video game for your learning program? An engaging onsite simulation can be created with a cell phone attached to a talented actor and a solid storyline.

How-To: Use Technology to Reinforce Training

By Kendra Lee
Technology provides a cost-effective, fun way to stay in front of your participants with key content reminders after the training is over. We’ve added technology-based reinforcement to all our training programs, and our clients have reaped big rewards.
For one organization’s sales prospecting program, we used a combination of e-mail and video follow-up. One year later, prospecting continues to be a habit for the whole sales force, driving new customers and revenue for the company.
