Recognize This! – A desire to increase employee engagement is useless without commitment and follow-through.
Gallup issued a brilliant case study of Stryker, a global medical devices company. Focusing on just one unit in New Jersey, the case study highlights several key tenets of success for an employee engagement or strategic employee recognition program.

Some have pushed for the notion that leaning functions should become profit centers. How should we treat learning and development? What are the implications for treating employee training as a self-contained business activity?
Imagine a company that treats its learning and development programs as a profit center. Training managers are responsible for their own budgets and must ensure that revenue not only covers expenses but also generates a tidy profit. Every… Continue

The key to a successful training program is always keeping in mind what you hope to achieve in terms of behavioral change and business outcome. The time to start thinking about the end result is before you write any content for your program.
You want to build training programs that will have an impact. Participants will return to their jobs and immediately put what they learned to use. But the impact doesn't end there. It's felt throughout the organization and… Continue

Just as there's more than one way to skin a cat, there's more than one way to evaluate a training program. My previous post on… Continue

Here is a quick story for you. A mid-market human resource executive schedules an agenda item for the next month’s senior management and board meeting.

With my [Bob Brogan
] nearly 20 years of professional experience within the franchising business arena, it is safe to say that the traditional and existing franchisor training has failed its two most important constituents: 1) Customers and 2) Franchisees.

Last week the Wall Street Journal (www.wsj.com
- Mark Bauerlein) had an article about Gen Y not being able to "read" each other. Which got me thinking "Is non-verbal communication" all that important? Is the sound of a person voice or the smile on their face needed? Nielsen Mobile reported late last year that teenagers on average sent and received 2,272 texts per month. A year earlier the National School Boards Association estimated that middle… Continue

In this week's Business Week magazine, its main article entitled Big Blue's Global Lab discusses how companies such as IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Proctor & Gamble and Eli Lilly are collaborating all over the world with their geographically disbursed offices, universities, governments and even other companies in their R&D efforts. IBM actually calls theirs "collaboratories" - with the potential to set up over 100 worldwide over the coming years. "The world is our lab now," states John E.… Continue

In the current edition of Chief Learning Officer magazine, Josh Bersin, the well respected founder of Bersin & Associates indicates that of those large corporations that have learning management systems (LMSs), almost one in three will be dumping their legacy LMS like a 1971 Chevy Vega, without any incentives from the U.S. government.

There is a lot of training centered around naming other people’s personalities and then using those categories to communicate better, read people, work together or build relationships. Sometimes these approaches take the form of being a color or giving your personality a name. They all fall under the broad category of personality typology. Personality typology aims at helping us understand our differences and how we can use that knowledge to relate more effectively.
While I think it… Continue
