Mindfulness

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.

Why People Don’t Remember You

By Mark Satterfield To set the stage for what I’m about to share, let’s focus on something that would appear to be “a blinding grasp of the obvious.” In order to get more referrals, people need to know who you are and what you do. You need to be top of mind when opportunities arise for people to send business your way. Now, if you sell a tangible product, this may be relatively easy. Need tires? Go to Bob. But what about when you sell services, especially high-value services that don’t lend themselves to a 10-second elevator pitch?

Supercompetent Speaking: Tips for Visuals

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP While the information we gather with all our senses can be vitally important, we human beings prefer the visual medium over all others. Our brains just work that way: We possess the ability to differentiate and process subtle differences in light intensity, color, and movement almost instantly, even though images tend to contain much more information than other sensory inputs.

Leading the Facebook Generation

By Ty Kiisel, Manager, Social Outreach, AtTask, Inc I work with a team of mostly young people. Except for the fact that I’m a 50-something guy who rides a Harley rather than a 20-something guy who rides a bullet bike, there’s no real generation gap among my colleagues. Of course, there are some age-related differences, but, for the most part, they are minor things less associated with work and more related to fashion and other personal preferences.

7 Ways to Tame Your Office Tyrant

By Lynn Taylor

In a time of record unemployment rates and job insecurity, many people get stuck having to deal with less-than-ideal bosses. The boss’ tantrums and stubborn, whiny, or needy behaviors are reminiscent of a boss stuck…in his Terrible Twos, a.ka., a Terrible Office Tyrant or TOT.

Core Competencies: Setting Training Up for Failure?

By Dan Cooper, CEO, ej4.com When it comes to training, the “competence” word gets thrown around a lot. The assumption is that everyone knows what it means, but that often isn’t the case. You need to make sure you know which of two definitions you’re talking about, and what the training department is signing up for. Core Competence

New Article: The Right Choice

By Darryl S. Doane; Rose D. Sloat; and David S. Doane, Ph.D. A critical component of my focus may be the right choice. We once heard a story of a farmer who had an old mule. One day, the farmer is out working and hears a distressful wailing that sounds as if something terrible has happened.

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.
