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

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

Learn to ski (and perform) fearlessly in the workplace!

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

So how are you doing work?

Tools, technology, technique… yes and trust.  As we work in a mobile, and ever increasing, global world the challenge I face is understanding who I am working with.  There is a name on an org chart however, that does not a relationship make.  Harold Jarche recently stated the “bigger change to manage is getting people … Continue reading

Strategically Social…

Strategy is more than a formal plan for me; it manifests itself as a consistency in behavior.  Being strategic helps me look for patterns to guide my decisions, both personally and in work.  Here is where we should be tapping into social tools by tracking and trending topics and conversations, in this way strategic learning … Continue reading
