C-Suite at Tenaris

C -suite and other senior executives and directors have a tendency to set themselves above corporate training. After all, they reason, if they weren’t accomplished experts, they wouldn’t be in their current positions.

Tenaris CEO Paolo Rocca sponsored a three-day senior executive-level training event in Italy, with the aim of making it prestigious, competitive, and invaluable to high-potential leaders.

Company Assets

People are an organization’s most valuable asset,” the saying goes. And that is certainly true of the 2017 Emerging Training Leaders, who possess finely honed soft skills, business acumen, and a collaborative mindset that produce bottom-line results for their organizations.

2017 Emerging Training Leaders bring business savvy and bottom-line results to their organizations.

Introvert Vs. Extrovert Leaders

The task-oriented, reflective individual who could spend hours in her office alone getting work done and the exuberant elbow rubber who’s happiest circulating among peers and employees appear to have little in common. But they both can make great leaders under the right conditions.

Introvert and extrovert leaders each have unique strengths. The key is to offer leadership development that teaches leaders about themselves and what works best for each style of leadership.

Don’t Just Say It, Convey It

By David Lapin The foundation of robust communication rests more on the ability to hear than on the capacity to speak. Communication is ineffective if it isn’t heard, no matter how eloquent the speech. As leaders, we need to hear our people, but equally important, we need to make sure the people we lead are hearing us. This applies on a day-to-day level, but is particularly important when having a serious conversation with an individual about his or her performance.

Learning to Get the Most from a Performance Chain

By Chris LaVictoire Mahai
In the animal world, the food chain is the most critical driving force. In the business world, it’s the performance chain—defined as allthe tangibleand intangibleelements that have to move from the moment you trigger demand until you have cash in the bank; allthe ins and outs that have to work together and align to your target customer experience to drive the outcomes you want.

How-To: Journal the Journey

By Jason Womack, MEd, MA, Founder and CEO, The Jason Womack Company
We love to read about life. We talk about what happened, who’s doing what, and where people are going. One look at the newsstand in a bookstore or airport and the headlines of what people did compete for your attention!

Onboarding as Part of Talent Management Strategy

Big or small, every company has to onboard new employees. Some organizations manage the process better than others. A select few take onboarding to the next level and integrate their onboarding program into their talent management process. The result of this integration is that onboarding becomes a key component of a company’s talent strategy.

Using 3-D Animated Video for Workforce Training

By Joelle Scheldorf Media designer Ruben Jauregui studies one of two widescreen computer displays on his desk. It shows an image of an industrial machine, dense with rollers, servomotors, and other mechanical components. “It’s called an Embosser,” Jauregui explains. “It’s used for combining two paper plies together. This model took me three weeks to make. It can take less, but this one was pretty complicated.”

Better Training Through Show, Not Tell

By Frank Ryle, PMP, Senior Trainer, International Institute for Learning, Inc. “You need to be able to show us and not tell us what we need to know.” This was probably the biggest tip I ever received early in my career as a corporate trainer in project management.

The Changing Face of Training

By Paul Glover When managers decide to train their employees, they are sometimes disappointed when their efforts fail. This happens because managers don’t always train employees on the skills that are most essential for moving the company forward.  

Where Are Your New Leaders Coming From?

Mission Impossible

By Guy L. Smith IV, Executive Vice President, Diageo North America, and the Diageo North America Corporate Relations Team How many times in your life has someone said to you, “You can’t do that; that’s impossible”? You just can’t do it!” A parent? A teacher? A coach? A colleague at work? Your boss? “It’s impossible to do that. No one has ever done that.” “You can never go faster than the speed of sound.” “Man cannot fly.”

What Business Acumen Can Do for You

By Kevin Cope, Founder, Acumen Learning Years ago a colleague of mine was consulting with a group of senior NASA managers at Cape Canaveral. He tried to explain, in simple terms, an organizational change strategy. The managers seemed confused. In an effort to clarify, he said, “Please don’t make this more complicated than it is. It’s not rocket science.” To which they sincerely answered, “We wish it were. We’d understand it better!”

Supercompetent Speaking: Before and After Tips

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP As professional speakers, it’s our goal to implant our messages firmly in our listeners’ minds. But some research indicates that 90 percent of audience members forget every brilliant thing you uttered within 30 days. To use a computing analogy, if the speech’s underlying message doesn’t get written into long-term storage, then new experiences eventually crowd it out of the listener’s short-term memory buffer.
