L&D A-Team

A former police officer, actor, lawyer, recruiter, military leader, CIA leader, and other “non-traditional” Learning professionals are all part of the Learning and Development (L&D) team at Talent Plus, an international management consulting firm headquartered in Lincoln, NE.

Non-traditional hires can build strong, innovative Learning and Development (L&D) teams, bringing a wealth of skills and perspectives that can help L&D transition from a developer and deliverer of learning to a coach and consultant for the business.

Millennials expect a lot from coaches. Catered to by parents, this generation also expects their employers to be empathetic to their causes, concerns, and world views.

Most advice about managing Millennials focuses on the wrong things, experts say—often meaningless differences between people rather than the massive number of things we have in common, namely, that we all are individuals who want to grow and feel valuable.

On Board with Onboarding?

An on-demand information and learning directory, in place of a huge overview a new employee is likely to forget, is an essential modern tool. But it shouldn’t replace the in-person introductions.

Leading to Higher Performance

Enhancing the relationship and communication between managers and employees is fundamental in improving teams’ performance.

Creating Positive, High-Performance Cultures

Understanding and accepting the indisputable evidence showing how emotions influence performance is the prerequisite step to creating positive, high-performance cultures.

The Myth of the Natural Leader

The best managers are people—natural or not—who learn proven techniques, practice those techniques diligently until they become skills, and continue practicing them until they become habits.

From White Collar Sweatshop to Progressive Employer?

Millennials, and many of us Generation Xers, prefer to buy from companies we feel good about paying, so I wonder if I was one of many who tried to shop elsewhere after the harsh treatment of Amazon’s workforce was revealed.

4 Tips to Help Motivate Your Retail Staff

Many retail staffers report feeling overworked and underappreciated, but it needn’t be all doom and gloom. If they are learning, then they have goals to work toward.

Commitment—The Fuel of Success

Life presents itself one day at a time. Commitments, therefore, need to be made in daily bite-sized chunks that can be assimilated without risk of mental indigestion.

Leveraging Machiavellianism

Machiavellians are more willing to take risks and challenge norms than other employees, which tends to lead to new ideas and innovations, as well as helping to identify workplace problems overlooked by managers.

Why Leaders Need Emotional Intelligence More than Ever

Self-awareness is the key to emotional intelligence (EQ): If leaders are unaware of how they are feeling, it is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately understand others and provide leadership direction.
