Leader and Social Media

Most of your employees are familiar with at least one social media site, whether that’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn, or another. Understanding how to use these platforms to build relationships with new and prospective customers—and even colleagues—is essential these days.

Social media is more than a collaboration and marketing tool; it also can be a tool to develop leaders.

INDUSTRY INSIGHT: STRATEGIC ONBOARDING—HELP NEW HIRES BELONG AND DELIVER RESULTS

When new hires choose your company as “the one,” it’s a big deal for them and you. And it’s personal. There’s nothing they want more than to belong — to fit in, understand their role, learn the ropes, and add value to the organization right away.

Because it’s personal, one-size onboarding isn’t going to work. Organizations should look at the new hire onboarding process as a complete experience. In fact, onboarding should begin from the moment the candidate says, “Yes.” That means personalizing the offer letter and pre-boarding experience and creating more than a task checklist about workspaces, computers, and paperwork. Strategic onboarding rapidly engages enthusiastic new hires into the life of the organization and keeps them continuously engaged with every career move or transition.

Why is it so important to get onboarding right?

Conduct A Training CSI

Determining the root cause of an organizational problem requires L&D professionals to go in with a CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) mindset. Gather the tools, your observation skills, and your questioning mind.

Make The Most Of Micro-Learning

Micro-learning, which breaks down mountains of information into discrete capsules, is a particularly effective vehicle for trainers to deliver dense, challenging material.

If You Build It, Will They Come?

In the face of changing technologies, hyper-busy employees, and "do-it-yourself training," how do Learning and Development (L&D) professionals successfully promote—or market—their programs, products, and services these days? Do they still publish catalogs and schedules? What role does social media play? How about personal contacts and relationships? This is an issue no one has studied in depth since the 1990s (a time before e-mail—imagine that!).

Hall Power
