Mindfulness training is making its way into the corporate world. More than just a stress management tool for busy executives, the act of becoming aware and centered now is seen as a valuable business skill.

Mindfulness long has been touted as a stress-relief tool. Is there a practical case for teaching all employees the ancient art of calming one’s mind to address business objectives?

Learner Experience

The learner experience may be as important to Learning and Development (L&D) as the user experience is to software companies. In fact, it’s a key factor in determining whether L&D remains relevant.

Once bounded by the duration and content of specific courses, the learner experience is growing to include the overall learning environment within the organization. That means efforts before, during, and after the training must be considered to help ensure learning can be sustained and retained.

Breaking Bad Habits

Procrastination, micromanagement, and tardiness are just a few of the bad habits your workforce—and you—might struggle with.

Work routines become so ingrained in us, it’s hard to change, but training yourself, and your employees, to instill better habits can create a more robust workforce.

What Matters?! What You Do and How You Do It

The What Matters?! framework is a human technology for helping people thrive in complex times. It provides a foundation for conscious and intentional living amidst the overstimulation of today’s world.

Understanding the 4 Sets of Learning-Agility Behaviors

Learning-agile people have “learned how to learn” from their experiences and made a strong commitment to seeking new challenges that allow them to both apply what they’ve learned and acquire new lessons for later application.

What Is Mobilization?

What’s so often missing in today’s organization’s is the ability of leadership to effectively translate business priorities in a manner that mobilizes and unites a team behind a holistic strategy.

A Happy VR/AR/MR New Year!

Ultimately, we need to keep our heads and focus on creating learning value while also imagineering the potential of a training future with virtual/augmented/mixed reality capabilities.

It’s Okay to Manage Your Boss

Unfortunately, too many leaders, managers, and supervisors are failing to lead, manage, and supervise. They fail to spell out expectations every step of the way, ensure necessary resources are in place, track performance, correct failure, and reward success.

From the Editor

I have a bad habit of not being “in the moment.” Instead, I tend to think too far ahead, trying to plan for every possible contingency—one of the hazards of being an editor (and a Virgo), I’m told.
