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.

This Week in Training: February 13th—17th

  Everything from new articles on our website to new webinars in our social learning community, get a preview of this week’s activity at Training magazine.

Conference Highlight: The Performance Consulting Model

  Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker Gabriel Urrea offers a case study on improving customer service satisfaction. Challenge: “Our customer service scores are not going in the right direction so we need nationwide training as soon as possible.”

Conference Highlight: StrategicPlay

  Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker Jacquie Lloyd Smith offers the ins and outs of StrategicPlay® with LEGO® bricks and why it works. How many times have you attended training or a meeting and thought it was a waste of time? Organizations in North America cannot afford to do this anymore. And life is too short to be bored by another PowerPoint or lecture about some discombobulated concept.

What’s an LMS? Part 1

By Glenn Drysdale, Training & Organizational Development Manager, Multi-Chem Recently, I embarked upon an adventure: implementing the first Learning Management System (LMS) in our company. It has been a rewarding venture, providing functionality we have needed for some time. The experience yielded many lessons that might be helpful for others. Here are some of the lessons we learned along the way.

Conference Highlight: Answer-Judging: Where eLearning Platforms Fall Short

  Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker Ethan Edwards points out a tragic schism between in-person training and elearning, and offers a tool to bridge the gap. As instructors, we all know that the best learning occurs when learners are challenged, make mistakes, get specific individualized instructional feedback, and then get the opportunity to practice.

Supercompetent Speaking: Top 10 Dress-for-Speaking-Success Tips

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP Nature has programmed human beings to assess strangers almost instantly for threat or value. While this capacity is less important today than it was a few thousand years ago, our biology hasn’t yet caught up to our culture. 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. As we transition from instructor-led training to self-paced elearning, we’ve forgotten two vital principles—structure and social rewards. Somehow, these important components for learning were, literally, left in the classroom.

Conference Highlight: Daniel Pink Animation

This RSAnimate video illustrates, literally, the principles in Drive by Daniel Pink, a Training 2012 keynote speaker. Want to know more about motivating your clients and co-workers? It's not too late to join us at the Training 2012 Conference & Expo!    

Entrepreneur’s Notebook

By Hank Moore, Corporate Strategist How organizations start out and what they become are decidedly different concepts. Mistakes, niche orientation, and lack of planning lead businesses to failure. Like trees, most organizations seemingly look the same...yet, they can shed leaves, wither, and die while nobody notices.

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.
