Teamwork

Fact: Most feedback is delivered badly. Constructive input is tough to deliver, and even when intentions are good, it usually lands cold and prickly as straight-up criticism. And no one likes to be criticized.

For leaders in rapid ascent, feedback is vital. So why is feedback so rarely sought and given? Here’s how to ensure your fastest-growing leaders are getting the feedback they need.

Rose was curious as to how Cartier-Bresson went about his work. “What’s the secret?” Without missing a beat, Cartier-Bresson answered: “You can’t want anything. You just need to be receptive.”

Instructional Design: Results-Based vs. Results-Capable

By Joseph Gianni, CEO, 2logical “Change on a dime!” “We need to do more with less!” “Innovate!” These are the battle cries from the executive ranks to the troops, and in today’s business world, they are the reality we face virtually every day. This drive toward continuous innovation has rendered the traditional reactive method of people development—closing individual skill gaps that seem to stand in the way of results—obsolete.

Training Fact or Myth?

By Dan Cooper, CEO, ej4.com In doing research on the effectiveness of video-based e-learning media, I ran across some useful facts that are commonly quoted on the Internet:

The Leadership Imperative: Mission Success

By Tom Rieger, Senior Practice Expert, Gallup There are no fearless leaders, but there are courageous ones. Everyone has fears they need to face. The key is to learn to overcome those fears.

They have to have the courage to fix what’s wrong.

Are You Dumb Enough to Be Creative?

By David Intrator, President, The Creative Organization In my seminars and workshops on creativity, I spend a lot of time emphasizing the value of being an idiot.
