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 mother had 11 children, enough to field our own team. Today, she is 89, yet very much involved in the management of one of the greatest sports enterprises, the Chicago Bears. 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.

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.

Leading Indicators

Sometimes the absence of change can herald change on the horizon—and that just may be the case when it comes to creation of global leadership development programs. The percentage of companies that have implemented global leadership development programs has remained the same since 2010, according to the third annual Developing Successful Global Leaders Studyconducted by Trainingmagazine, the American Management Association (AMA), and The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp). But the key here is that the figure (31 percent) did not decline.

Trends in HR Software: Implications for Learning

By Dr. Katherine Jones, Director and Principal Analyst, HCM Technology, Bersin & Associates As Sherlock Holmes says to Dr. Watson, “the game’s afoot!” Sherlock implies excitement, intrigue, choices to be made—and risks to be run. For HR and learning professionals, we can easily suggest the same—the game is afoot as we face increasing change and innovation that has ramifications for the world of training.

Grooming Talent Through Sharing, Not Hiring

By Srinivas Kandula, EVP and Global Head of Human Resources, iGATE Hiring and training top talent can be a daunting and expensive task. The cardinal rule is that it costs 25 percent more to replace and train new employees, and costs are going up.

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.

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.

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.
