I Believe in the Value of Working out Loud

Tom Spiglanin

We all remember teachers in  early school years insisting that we show our work. Or were they making sure we actually did the work and not copy answers from the back of the book?

Emergence of the Performance Catalyst

Tom Spiglanin

Some learning resulted from workplace training, but more learning occurred from working with others, and the largest part of the learning resulted from doing the job. The trouble–and I do see it as trouble–is that a great many who work in this field of Learning and Development tend to stick with one technique or approach to the exclusion of others. Perhaps

Are You Taking Time for a Second Look?

CLO Magazine

The booming market of nontraditional and continuing education is filled with many people who are now working toward degrees because they got sidetracked earlier in their studies. CLOs can’t look at people, work styles, educational backgrounds or results in a singular way. Americans love second chances. Those second chances are happening in education, too. It’s not uncommon.

Distance Learning Tips for The Remote Worker

Mindflash

It is estimated that 63 million Americans will work remotely in 2016, which is more than a third of the total workforce. As workplace flexibility becomes more important and technological capacities increase, companies are hiring more telecommuters and allowing more current employees the option to work from home. This new work structure brings with it new challenges for training personnel. Remote learners experience an entirely different type of work environment and can easily suffer from feelings of isolation as they are truly separate from the home base or core team.

The Future of Work: As Gartner Sees It

Upside Learning

Earlier today, I stumbled on this bit of research on the Gartner site; while it dates back to August there’s some interesting speculation about the Future of Work. People will swarm more often and work solo less. They’ll work with others with whom they have few links, and teams will include people outside the control of the organization,”. “In addition, simulation, visualization and unification technologies, working across yottabytes of data per second, will demand an emphasis on new perceptual skills.”. -       Tom Austin, Vice President and Gartner Fellow.

Generations at War

CLO Magazine

While it is helpful for leaders to identify their own work style and values, they should also understand the priorities of those they manage, and understand that younger workers show respect for core values as much as any other generation. Walter Thompson conducted a study on millennials and found them to be a generation brimming with adult-like respect for American institutions, family values and work ethics, despite a few quirks. While we all have respect for bedrock American institutions, the significance of work is different for each generation. The J.

Individuals Also to Blame in Work-Life Flexibility Failure

CLO Magazine

Employers and managers aren’t the only ones able to dictate work-life flexibility. 20 For years, the mandates for more work-life flexibility were directed at organizations and management, but workplace and academic experts say the boss or company are no longer the ones to solely blame for flexibility failure. Increasingly, the challenge is for risk-averse employees to focus less on sweeping transformative change and instead make small everyday shifts in work style. Individuals must be proactive, too.

Recipe For Disaster

Nick Leffler

To put this into context, imagine working with a new application being developed within an organization. I use this example because it’s complex, lots of moving parts. What better way to look at the success a working out loud mentality can bring you than to look at the alternative. Work in Silos.

How to Retrain for a Second Career

CLO Magazine

When factored into learning design, understanding employees’ personalities and what motivates them at work can make it easier to retrain an individual.

As people tend to develop behaviors, skills and attitudes associated with their type, the more they use these natural preferences in their work, the more energized, engaged and productive they will be.

Use Employee Health As a Performance Engine

CLO Magazine

The 2012 Towers Watson “Staying @ Work Survey Report” stated, “This year’s survey results show a strong link between highly effective health and productivity strategies and strong human capital and financial results.” Essentially, if employees engage in healthy behaviors, they are more likely to bring their best energy and selves to their work and teams, which fuels business performance.

Transactional analysis and time management

From the Coleface

One activity that stood out for me was completing the “Working Styles Questionnaire” This identifies 5 of the underlying scripts that underpin our behaviour and which ones we tend to rely on most. Scripts are particulalry pertinent to time management as when people are working under pressure they often seem to “revert to type” As a person looking in, rather than being in the thick of a situation, the answers may be obvious. Effective time management is all about getting into habits that work. The 5 are: Hurry Up. Be perfect. Please people.

The Difference Between a Coach, Mentor, and Consultant?

Your Training Edge

Finally, we must determine the scope of the person’s work. Many mentor relationships are self-selected – keep in mind that a coach is usually assigned to a person or a team, whereas mentor relationships usually spring from mutual interests, work styles, and histories. The consultant works on a specific agenda, as determined by the organization and the consultant. Bryant’s business career has been based on his results-oriented style of empowering the individual. Second, we should look at the type of agenda or role the person has.

Why a LMS is as Vital as Staff Performance Management

Mindflash

It’s a common problem: Increasingly we’re pressured into result-based working styles – great for the short term, but not of as much use for the long term direction and growth of your organisation and brand. Your staff will appreciate your time and interest in their development as an individual, and this respect for your employees will be rewarded in their attitude to work.

Remote Collaboration

My primary interest here are the methods and tools that allow us to work better as part of remote work teams.
