INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS: How to Increase Engagement with Custom eLearning

 
Historically, instructor-led training (ILT) has dominated learning modalities. But in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, employee training and development teams are under pressure to quickly recreate instructor-led experiences in a virtual setting. Doing so usually requires the capabilities to build custom eLearning activities, but for many Learning and Development (L&D) teams, that may seem impossible on a short timeline.

However, in addition to high-tech solutions such as gamification and immersive technologies, there are also low-tech solutions that can help.

Best Practices: The Crisis in the Global Leadership Pipeline

By Neal Goodman, Ph.D., President, Global Dynamics, Inc.
Baby Boomers with global business expertise are retiring, and many organizations are hoping to replace them with talented Asian leaders to help them succeed in emerging markets in Asia. Yet few of the leadership programs in Asian universities are teaching skills such as vision, creativity, and risk-taking that are at the core of many organizations.

Trainer Talk: Got Empathy?

By Bob Pike
As trainers, we naturally believe we have large stores of empathy for the people we train. After all, we want our trainees to learn. We also want them to master the skills and knowledge that will help them to perform better. And we want to help create a workplace that will support them in applying new skills and knowledge after the training has ended.

Training magazine Events: The 3 New R’s

Talent Tips: Trying to Follow the Leader

By Roy Saunderson, President, Recognition Management Institute
Can we really produce leaders the way we’ve always done?
Perhaps therein lies the answer to our emerging shortage of talent and the void of succession planning, especially as many senior leaders begin to depart the workforce. We can’t keep doing the same leadership development if we want real leaders for tomorrow.

According to Stephen M.R. Covey and Greg Link, authors of “Smart Trust: Creating Prosperity, Energy, and Joy in a Low-Trust World,” there are three primary reasons extending Smart Trust is smart:

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 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. 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.

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.
