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.

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.

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?

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.
