Learners have a lot of attitude these days.

A question of attitude
Clive on Learning
MARCH 21, 2012
Ernest had strong opinions on just about all matters of pedagogy and good practice and that included the issue of attitudes. Clive," he said, "It's not our business to try and change people's attitudes. We can try and change what they do, but not what they feel about things. There's a certain sense in what Ernest said, although time and time again I've encountered situations where attitudes are the major block to progress. It's almost impossible to address issues of knowledge and skill when attitudes are in the way. Perhaps I ought to change.

Adjusting our Attitude toward Gen-Y
FEBRUARY 18, 2011
This quote is buried in the USA Today article, “ Generation Y: They came to the workplace with a new attitude.”. There is also no debate that workers are changing jobs more frequently, which is not necessarily generation specific. In fact, this notion directly contradicts another assumption made about the generation: “… they believe in their own self worth and value enough that they’re not shy about trying to change the companies they work for.”. The new ways that are being developed to recruit and retain new workers is a result of the world changing around us.
Insights: Assessment is changing
Clive on Learning
DECEMBER 6, 2012
The eighth of ten 'insights' is that ‘Assessment is changing', in the sense that assessment of knowledge is not enough - it is performance that matters. Competence will depend to some degree on the knowledge that employees have, but it will also be underpinned by attitudes, skills and the confidence to put these into practice. This post continues my commentary to the Learning Insights 2012 Report produced by Kineo for e.learning age magazine. The best way to measure competence is through observation of actual job behaviour, something which most managers do routinely. Simple.

Preparing for Change
SEPTEMBER 25, 2009
When I was fifteen my father told me that one thing I can always count on is that things are going to change. For better or for worse, I fully expect change - I know its going to happen. I use the word upheaval because even when change is good there remains a learning curve and time to adjust to new circumstances. Around any change there is fear, rumors, and reluctance. Prep for Change Now. My number one recommendation for preparing your organization for change is to not wait until change is coming down the pipe to start preparing for it.

How Do You Get Leaders to Change?
OCTOBER 2, 2012
Emphasizing dialogue, data, respect and patience can make change happen. Change is hard. The brain is wired to detect any change in the environment as a threat. It takes an enormous amount of intention, focus, attention, patience and persistence to make a decision to change and then follow through. There are hundreds of books on change and dozens of change models available, but the exact recipe for helping someone change has been a holy grail for learning leaders. First, the person must see a need for change. ’ attitude.”

Who Does Culture Change Rest On?
NOVEMBER 15, 2012
Employees knew that change was on its way when Domino’s was acquired by Bain Capital in 1999, after being led by its founder for almost 40 years.

It also made a fundamental shift and emphasized that attitude was more important than skill. Skills can be taught, the company thought, but basic values and attitude are part of an individual’s identity. One is Domino’s Pizza.

LEADERS ARE TOO FAR UPSTREAM TO EFFECT CHANGE—TALENT MANAGEMENT MUST BE FOCUSED DOWNSTREAM ON MANAGERS
FEBRUARY 22, 2013
Movement is measurable, while motivation lies within us affected by a variety of mental attitudes and internal prejudices. Nevertheless, what about managers who must raise the performance of workers, achieve cost/time/efficiency savings, another top, or bottom line positive changes? However to change performance I suggest unless a leader is in total control—think Jack Welch or Steve Jobs—they are too distant—to far upstream from the action to make a difference in how people move and their commitment to performance. No, he said, what we really want is movement. Management.
AVA: How learning technologies can change behaviour
JULY 28, 2014
As it was my first week on the job, the course itself was an education for me about what good elearning can do to change behaviour. Nowhere is this desire for change more crucial than in the fight against VAWG. It was wonderful to see the passion for change and enthusiasm for the project amongst experienced campaigners.

How can we promote successful change in education?
