Leadership & Learning: A Strategic Combination

You are a leader, you are invested in your organization’s success, growth, and stability.  You understand what an ABC analysis is, how to read a balance sheet, and can nod your head when P/E Ratio equations are discussed (more fun terms here). But if you are looking to have an impact on the bottom line … Continue reading

What’s in a gen?

So we have 5 generations in the workforce at the same time with so many different needs and requirements and ways to lead and supervise and communicate and commute and work and and and …… and I think it is time to just give it a rest. You might say this is the reactions of a … Continue reading

Are you really leading?

Through the years I have seen a number of people who hold high ranking roles, CEO’s, VP’s, and other “C” suite titles.  I admit the titles led me to think of them as leaders, as the people creating the change of a new tomorrow.  A funny thing happened along the way, I found many were … Continue reading

MOOCs may be missing the mark(et)!

MOOCs are all the rage lately, degree options are available thru these Massive Open Online Courses that are focused at classes of thousands, interactions among the participants and all kinds of resources available to you via your browser.  Depending on the platform and design MOOCs can combine synchronous as well as asynchronous delivery and can … Continue reading

Competencies we need to succeed in the future – a follow up

I asked for ideas on what competencies a future learning and performance professional will need to succeed in the next 5-10 years and led a session at the Learning Solutions Conference in March focused on Who Is the Next-gen Worker (and Are We Ready for Them?).  With the advances in social media, technology, and mobile … Continue reading

Time to reflect, renew, and engage!

Happy 2013 and farewell 12!  I had a year filled with learning, filled with change, and have entered 2013 with a deeper understanding of what matters most (well, to me!) in the world we live in.  As I look forward to this new year I want to share the five key lessons that are defining … Continue reading

Guide me and I will learn sooner!

Have you seen the work being done at the Center for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT) around the New Workplace Learning model?  Aligned with Gary Wise’s learning moments @ point of work where 95% of our time is spent outside of formal training this new model supports the creation, use, and support of role/task specific … Continue reading

Are you missing the conversation?

That is what “Social Media” (SoMe) is to me, an opportunity to create, provoke, and reflect on conversations.  However a recent discussion found me on the side against SoMe when my colleague was waxing poetic on the interactions, the threads, the discussions, the variety of topics, the breadth of people involved until I asked, “but … Continue reading

Business is changing – are we keeping up?

Over six years ago Sir Ken Robinson proposed a education system that would nurture rather than, as he states, “kill creativity”.  This idea is around exploring, learning as you go, and experimenting alone as well as in groups; business is following this path even if they don’t know it.  Harold Jarche wrote recently that the … Continue reading
