Do you define what you want to talk about with stakeholders?
Kirkpatrick Partners
About 10 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with an executive coach, John Jenson. He told me a story about a salesperson he coached who had an amazing collection of rings. She wore more than one on nearly every finger. John, being incredibly tactful yet direct, asked her why she wore so much jewelry when working, suggesting that it might create a distraction.

How to use drivers to ensure training success
Kirkpatrick Partners
Kirkpatrick's four levels of training evaluation are structured as a sequence of ways to evaluate training programs. The New World Kirkpatrick Model stresses "starting with the end in mind," essentially beginning with Level 4 and moving backwards in order to better establish the desired outcome before ever planning the training program, if indeed one is warranted at all. When an issue or business need is identified that requires the people involved to change their behavior, an analysis of the issue usually is conducted.

Edutopia
Elena Aguilar, a transformational leadership coach from Oakland, California, writes: "In my last blog I made the case for social emotional learning (SEL) for all — for children, teachers, administrators, coaches, and all other staff working in and with schools. I promised suggestions for how this could be done in schools. The following lessons can be taken up by an entire staff or by an individual and are intended to build emotional awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management."

Harvard dean looks at changing face of adult learning
KUSA-TV
One of the country's foremost experts on adult learning is in Denver Thursday. Dean Hunt Lambert heads up the Harvard Division Of Continuing Education and he shared his vision of adult learning's future on 9NEWS 8 a.m. Lambert is no stranger to Colorado. Before Harvard snatched him away, he held a similar post at Colorado State University. Lambert believes the adult learners of today have complex and sometimes competing responsibilities, and they're on information overload. He says his goal is to work with faculty to package teaching and learning options to help adult learners with short- and long-term knowledge goals. Lambert says technology can be both a blessing and a curse in that regard.

Training should show a return on investment pt2
Training Zone
Good financial directors will take a jaundiced view of claimed returns on investment. There is no doubt that a critical eye is needed on some claims. If you spend £1000 on training, how do you get that cash back? You need to show the source of the additional income or the reduced cost. If that £1000 is spent on improving a department of ten people, so that they are 5 percent more effective, how do you get your money back? Can they produce 5 percent more work in which case you need the sales to generate the ROI. Can you win those sales? If ten people are 5 percent more efficient then they do the work of ten and a half people. Will you make half a person redundant? Change the hours to suit? If not, you haven't saved anything. If the investment does produce labour savings what rate do you charge?
