In a very real sense, then, style often trumps substance—especially in environments where people only have a few minutes to get to know you.

Conference Highlight: Success with eLearning: The Missing Ingredients

  Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker John Castaldi shares the lessons from school we forgot to bring with us.

What a Synergist Is and Why You Should Care

By Les McKeown If you’re involved with any group of people who are trying to achieve common goals—whether by leading a Fortune 500 company or volunteering part-time at a kid’s soccer league—you soon become acutely aware that those goals will be achieved only through the work of the people in the group. Put simply, organizations don’t succeed in and of themselves—they succeed only through individuals,working in groups and teams.
