Measuring Leadership

The impact of a toxic executive can be substantial, including the loss of star employees and departments that fail to reach business goals. Well-liked but ineffective leaders can be equally damaging, impeding a company’s profitability.

Leadership development programs are commonplace; less commonplace is an effective way to measure if they work. Companies are making an effort to determine whether and how leaders—and their organizations—are benefiting from these programs.

Build Trust

An employer can be a force to fear, or a force for trust and cooperation. More companies are discovering ways—including specific training—to build trust with their employees, fostering greater productivity and higher employee retention in the process.

Full Circle Feedback

360-degree reviews and coaching for leaders can foster a culture of openness and engagement.

Talent 2.0: A New Framework for Job Skills Development

In recent years, we have seen the trend increasingly move toward many companies and organizations offering lucrative job roles that do not require either a degree or a diploma, but instead require a specific skill set, especially in the technology sector.

Great Person—But a Toxic Boss?

“Kiss up, kick down” is a common modus operandi for managers and executives, so as smart, funny, and pleasant as a person may be with those working at the same level, or above them, that same person may be a nightmare to those working below them.

10 Myths About Cloud Computing

The cloud facilitates rapid experimentation and innovation, allowing companies to try and even adopt new solutions—including learning and development solutions—without significant upfront costs.

What Role Will AI play in L&D?

With today’s focus on digital technology, it’s easy to neglect a simple fact: All that technology is meaningless without the right talent to put it to use. That means investing in new ways of working with, training, and hiring staff who have the correct skills.

The Real Business Costs of Undermanagement

All across the workplace, at all levels of organizations in every industry, there is a shocking and profound lack of daily guidance, direction, feedback, and support for employees. That is the basis of undermanagement—the opposite of micromanagement.

Collaboration Overload?

When you have a group of people, you have more ideas, but you also have more fears and more self-interest. Collaboration needs to be counterbalanced with independent thought and idea generation.

The Not-So-Magic Number

Indifference and passing the buck from one department (and phone number) to another leads to frustrated customers. Customer service starts with allowing people to have the right information. One stop, one conversation leading to one solution will make you the one business people want to deal with.

Changing Culture Quickly Is Key, But So Is Being Realistic

Culture change is not just about operational excellence and creating more efficiencies. Rather, successful culture turnarounds are executed when CEOs instill a sense of trust; a clear, actionable strategy; and hope.

Focus Where It Matters

The focus of a senior meeting needs to be conversation, controversy, even conflict—not updates. Leaders should be engaging and struggling with the organization’s most critical and difficult-to-solve issues. Here are four areas to focus your attention on.
