From The Official Kirkpatrick Blog: "Last year, I delivered a one-hour talk to 100 training professionals at a large technology corporation. My message focused on the need to become one with the business, not isolated from it. Almost to a person, they said, 'We are seen as vital to our corporation.

Corporate training: It's hot again
Bersin by Deloitte    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
U.S. training organizations grew their spending by 12 percent last year, the highest growth rate in the last 8 years. Why the high growth? Companies now realize that despite the high levels of unemployment in some locations, skills are hard to find. Jobs have become more specialized and even highly skilled professionals must continuously reinvent themselves. Plus, as recent research from McKinsey points out, educational institutions are not developing graduates who are immediately ready for work. More

Democratic state Rep. Derek Stanford says he is encouraged about the prospects for a bill he has introduced to require continuing education for engineers. Stanford's bill had a hearing before the House committee on business and financial services. The bill that Stanford has sponsored would require engineers to get 15 hours of continuing education each year. Stanford said that the bill would mean that engineers in Washington would have to meet the same standards as engineers in most other states. He said that groups like the American Society of Civil Engineers support the bill. More

Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Peter Bregman, a contributor of Forbes, writes: "The night before our wedding, Eleanor and I stood awkwardly in the center of a large room, surrounded by our family and our closest friends. There was no particular reason to be uncomfortable; this was just a rehearsal. Still, we were in the spotlight and things weren't going smoothly. Neither the rabbi nor the cantor had arrived and we didn't know where to stand, what to say, or what to do." More

How much of your brain do you lead with?    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Brain scientists have determined that the brain has four functional quadrants that play different roles in our personality. While we are meant to use all four quadrants and develop communication between these functions, we have found through our work with leaders over the last four decades that most leaders are only using a quarter to a half of their brain's potential. Imagine the positive impact on your organizational results if your leaders were accessing all four quadrants of the brain. More
