The Power of Beliefs

The Performance Improvement Blog

If you want a culture in which employees are learning, developing, and contributing to the organization’s success, you need to address the beliefs that they carry in their heads, and whether, according to Chris Argyris , their espoused theory (what they say they believe) and their theory-in-use (beliefs that direct actual behavior) are congruent. The action that follows might likely be that we rarely voice our views at work.

Vision and Values Shaping New Organizational Structures

The Performance Improvement Blog

It would be easy to trivialize this movement by attributing the change to stereotypical Millenials who want work to be fun and want to have a voice in decisions from the moment they are hired. Leaders in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, who have prior experience in many different kinds of organizations, are intentionally creating truly unique work environments that are structured differently and operate differently from mainstream, bureaucratic, business-textbook organizations.

Microlearning: Fab or Fad?

Tom Spiglanin

Like its predecessors social learning, mobile learning, and blended learning, it’s being tossed around as the new big thing, something we must all get on board with or face extinction. I do believe microlearning is an important tactic for workplace learning and has a place alongside other approaches in the workplace. Generally, the term “microlearning” refers to micro-perspectives in the context of learning, education and training.

He writes: Because of the way every industry — from health care to manufacturing to education — is now being transformed by cheap, fast, connected computing power, the skill required for every decent job is rising as is the necessity of lifelong learning. The days of going to school, learning a skill, and working for a company until retirement have long since gone. I live in a region of the country where many new businesses are being started. Why Learn?

Do You Need a CCO and CLO?

The Performance Improvement Blog

I agree with Hebert and I have similar concerns with having a CLO (Chief Learning Officer). Learning is what employees in high performance organizations must do continuously as part of their jobs. The risk is that responsibility for employee engagement and learning will be relegated to a department and not owned by every executive, manager, and employee in the organization. Those areas need a voice at the executive table. Should your organization have a CCO and CLO?

The Democratic Workplace

eFront

” So how is organizational politics different? Worldblu.com (a global network of organizations committed to practicing freedom and democracy in the workplace) explains the difference perfectly: “Organizational democracy is a system of organization that is based on freedom, instead of fear and control. Transparency contributes to trust and it also makes people feel that they matter – that they are valued, empowered and given a voice.

Collaboration, Communication, and Cooperation

Clark Quinn

It’s time to try to reconcile those, and propose why I think collaboration is a new business watchword. I want voice and text live as well as comments. While collaboration may get the immediate focus and the ink inches (I guess pixels these days :) – because of new tools, and the immediate business benefits – I think the longer term need will be to create an environment where the culture, the practices, and the tools are aligned for successful learning.
