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.

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.

Does Traditional Performance Management Work?

By M. Tamra Chandler, CEO, PeopleFirm LLC Performance Management (PM) is currently a hot topic among business leaders and human resource professionals. While it is universally recognized that the intent of Performance Management is worthy, there are many voices challenging the value being delivered by today’s traditional PM programs—with more ardent critics going so far as to say that traditional approaches to PM destroy trust between management and employees and do little to advance the development of the targeted employee groups.

Conversations That Inspire Growth

By Shawn Kent Hayashi, Founder, The Professional Development Group There is a fine line between fixing people and inspiring them to grow. Training managers to inspire employees and teams is vital to an organization’s success. Want to know how to do this? Developing star performers requires many meaningful conversations beyond the performance review. A conversation can be powerful and inspiring or flat and dull or somewhere in between. Are the conversations managers are having in your organization currently creating engagement and momentum?

Hiring: The Broken Process

By Herb Greenberg, Ph.D., Founder, Caliper Corporation You’re looking to make a hire. So, you advertise “10 years of experience required.” I cannot tell you how often I’ve asked groups to whom I’m speaking, “Why 10 years?  Why not eight or 12 years?” There is never a solid answer. 

3 Leadership Lessons from the Titanic

By Jocelyn R. Davis, EVP, Research and Development, The Forum Corporation At 11:40 on the bitterly cold night of Sunday, April 14, 1912, the Titanic’s lookout, Frederick Fleet, clanged the warning bell three times from the crow’s nest of the luxury ocean liner and picked up the phone to the bridge. The following conversation ensued: “What did you see?” “Iceberg right ahead.” “Thank you.”

HR Meets the Cloud

By Bob Kelleher There’s no doubt the recession has affected training budgets in companies of all sizes and across all industries. The need to find affordable and effective ways to develop talent is more critical than ever. Clearly, employee development is essential to engage and retain your employees.

Mentoring and Business Coaching Facilitate Company Success

By Hank Moore, Corporate Strategist Question 1: How fast is the coaching industry growing? Coaching industries are growing rapidly because self-styled experts are creating pockets of business for themselves. Demands have long existed for quality service...with few seasoned business advisors available. Thus, niche consultants served the business.

Make “Value-Added” Really Valuable

By Bill Blades, CMC, CPS Smart salespeople can earn more clients in five months by being interested in the success and happiness of others than in five years of getting clients interested in them. Yet, the majority of salespeople make routine sales visits without thinking, “How am I going to earn their business?” and “How can I make my selling proposition so compelling that no one else will stand a chance?”

Educating a Better Customer Service Representative

By Joe Lipham, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide My 18-year old daughter was preparing for her first night as a food server for a major hotel chain. She excitedly talked about her new job, and as a proud dad and hospitality professional, I wanted to offer her my insights. As I started into the “dad speech,” my daughter waved me off and said, “Dad, you and Mom made sure we had good manners!”

SuperCompetent Speaking: Delivering Memorable Presentations

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP Although the focus of every talk will vary, supercompetent speakers share an overriding goal for each presentation: to create a remarkable, fulfilling experience the audience members will take to heart, put into action, and remember long afterward.

Finding the Hidden Treasure in a Job Hunt

By Libby Carter Current economic conditions have made job-hunting a necessary art form. Potential employees constantly must create new ways in which to differentiate themselves in the market. Since job hunting has become such a long, pain-staking process, one might compare it to a treasure hunt for the most valuable prize—a job. In this case, the one who finds the treasure is the individual who takes a new, fresh approach to accomplishing the task at hand. What does it take to find that “treasured” job?
