It took a dance for me to see..

You should know I am writing a book framed by the many blog posts I have written about learning, strategy, design, and improving human performance.  About 3 months ago I suddenly couldn’t write a thing.  I found myself using the time to develop project proposals, try new marketing ideas and efforts, and other “stuff” that … 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

Launching a Unique Competency-Based Offering at a Community College (Part 2)

In an industry that has a tendency to get swept up by trends and fads, competency-based education (CBE) has proved its value time and again over a matter of decades. Over the past few years we’ve seen the number of CBE offerings skyrocket, matching the public’s focus on student outcomes and skill mastery. In this … Continue reading

Always Consider Retention: Maximizing Success in Competency-Based Education

Roughly 600 colleges are in the design phase for a new competency-based education (CBE) program, are actively creating one or already have a program in place. That’s up from an estimated 52 institutions last year according to a recent post by Paul Fain. One primary reason for this growth is the need to expand the … 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

So (you ask) where is the connection between learning, performance improvement and snow skiing? Terrain-based learning may offer L&D some new ways to handle challenging training situations. I learned to ski when I was 40 and tossed onto the bunny hill in the midst of many others trying to not fall or crash. A lot … Continue reading

Competencies and assessment strategies

Recent posts have centered on the skills and attributes we expect our future colleagues to have. How will they get there and how will we know? How do we design L&D experiences with the goal of having assessments be “competency-based? “While there are many definitions of competency, most of them have two common elements: The … 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

Strategically Social is tactically terrific!

I had several personal responses to my last post that can best be summed up as, “me too!”  One person recounted an internal client who had to have a CBT although what really was needed was a job aid the workers could hang on their badge lanyards for quick reference!  It was a reader who … Continue reading

A Coherent Organization is… connected from the ground up

Could the barrier to coherency be one of connectedness?  “The underlying concept of a coherent organization is that organizations and their people are members of many different types of networks, for example, communities of practice, the company social network, and close-knit collaborative work teams. A coherent organization requires a single unifying framework, not two operating systems.” (Harold … Continue reading
