Soapbox: The Information Battlefield

By Nate Kelly, Senior Strategist, Cerner Corporation
In 1970, Malcolm Knowles identified six characteristics of adult learners that became—and remain—the backbone of many Training departments’ learning strategy. In today’s learning environment, which resembles more of an information battlefield than a classroom, those characteristics might be the most important weapons trainers can wield as they compete for the time and attention of would-be learners.

How to Create Lasting Change

By Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA
Here are my suggestions about how to make change last:

By Bob Parsanko and Paul Heagen Adam was stuck. The work to this point had been almost easy, familiar—and largely without obstacles. Three years into his first job as CEO, his place in life felt natural.

Change Top-Down Leadership with “I Intend to…”

In Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, site of one of America’s greatest military setbacks, the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe sat in wait. Within the tight confines of the ship toiled a crew plagued by low morale and poor performance. In a remarkable turn of events they soon would lead the fleet in most measures of combat effectiveness and create more future leaders than any other submarine.
