The American Society of Administrative Professionals (ASAP) recognizes that being an Administrative Professional is more than a job. It is a profession. That is why the organization offers the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE). The Value of Certification, a Pearson and Firebrand study, found that a certification credential assures companies that an applicant is competent and professional. When an administrative professional receives the PACE certification all parties benefit. Certified individuals gain professional credibility and confidence; companies that hire certified individuals gain "stand out" employees who can help them meet their organizational goals and, the public gains from the efficiency, innovation, and expertise of highly trained professionals. The Value of Certification report discusses how PACE can help administrative professionals, to better communicate, tackle tasks, and manage projects, showcasing leadership skills, and more. Earning the PACE certification and placing the PACE designation after their name positions them as highly credible professionals who are serious about their careers. Discover the path to advancing administrative and executive assistants through The Value of Certification and PACE.
How many minutes of your day do you spend worrying about making a mistake at work, stressing out about workplace politics, checking out of superficial meetings or over-planning and analyzing without taking action? If you are anything like the majority of people, chances are various stressful thoughts, fears and unhealthy judgments pop up in your head and take away from your energy and productivity. In our 17 years of working with businesses we have found that in order to keep these stressors at bay, we have to be intentional about where we focus our attention and what lens we use to process information. We like to think of that filter as our mindset, and we have dedicated our work to helping professionals of all levels, industries and personalities choose a mindset that helps them be more productive and happier at work. As psychologist and researcher, Carol Dweck brilliantly points out in her book "Mindsets are just beliefs. They are powerful beliefs, but they’re just something in your mind, and you can change your mind." (Dweck, Mindset: Psychology of Success, 2008). "
So You Were Forced Into Online Learning... What is Next? This year, and arguably more than ever before, a massive evolution in workplace learning has transpired on a global scale as the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizations across almost every industry to utilize some form of remote initiatives in order to keep team members engaged while ensuring their safety and wellbeing.

"Will this be recorded?" It might just be the most commonly asked question at the start of virtually every training event. And the good news is that nowadays, you can almost always answer, "Yes." Great. But then what? According to a Wainhouse Research study, 87 percent of employees1 agree that having access to recorded training classes, webinars, and other events makes it easier to revisit crucial information when it’s needed most. Today, recording training sessions is quickly becoming standard practice. And the benefits are well known. Among the many positives, video helps learning and development (L&D) teams provide employees with a comprehensive resource to reference after the training ends, and also provides employees unable to attend with access to the information on-demand. But good intentions too often fall short once the training session ends and the recording stops. For all its benefits, video also presents challenges when it comes to storing, sharing, and even playing recordings. Left unsolved, those shortcomings make video content burdensome for employees simply looking for quick information that helps them perform their jobs. Fortunately, there is a solution. A video content management system (or video CMS) solves the most common problems of managing and sharing video. In this paper, we’ll review the five biggest challenges organizations face when using video to support corporate learning. Then we’ll examine how a video content management system helps overcome those challenges to better enable video-based learning.
Training Engages and Empowers Employees Expectations are changing in today’s employee-driven economy, and keeping employees engaged and satisfied is more important than ever. In a recent Deloitte survey, engagement and learning were considered very important or important by 85% and 84% percent of participants, respectively. 1 This creates a great opportunity for large enterprises seeking to attract and keep the best employees. High-quality software training can help employees feel more prepared and enabled for their work responsibilities, as well as happier and more motivated. It can also be especially attractive to younger employees who value continuous learning that equips them to advance their careers.  Click below to download this White Paper.

Colorful post-its. Wacky visuals. Funky rooms. What technique of innovation is better known than brainstorming? What word solicits more eyerolls in the real world? Brainstorms are frequently unproductive. There are two main reasons why, and they’re related: ● People evaluate others’ ideas ("Neat, so how much would that cost?"). ● People evaluate their own ideas before they’ve even shared them. They censor out the most unusual ones for fear of being judged as silly or dumb. Analysis and evaluation are critical skills. We’re rewarded for quickly evaluating situations, diagnosing errors, and finding practical solutions in nearly every aspect of our lives. Rightly so. |Brainstorming is harder than it looks because it requires us to temporarily suspend these instincts. The purpose of a brainstorm is to come up with as many different options as possible to delight our users. The greater the number and variety of options, the higher the odds of a valuable idea. A properly run group brainstorm is your most useful tool to generate game changing ideas. It requires skill and preparation to be effective. Here’s what we think are the most impactful steps you can take to make your next brainstorm as productive as it can be.
Compliance is not just something extra we have to do to manage risk and follow the law. It touches on almost every aspect about how we work.

In the current climate, we’re having to respond quickly to the challenge of operating in a fully virtual, at-distance, world of learning. This insight addresses the challenge of how to take a blended learning journey—a sustained learning experience that blends a mix of media, events and channels, over time—and cater for when face-to-face engagement is no longer an option. L&D teams around the world are having to adapt, and to adapt quickly. Global organizations are adjusting rapidly due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, and there’s an increased urgency to support change and deliver effective transformation while working and learning at distance. The impact of this transformation is likely to leave a lasting legacy beyond the immediate crisis. If organizations can embrace and deliver effective virtual learning at this time, the benefits (reducing unnecessary travel, for a start) will surely shape the future landscape of ‘business as usual’. And while it may be relatively straight-forward to simply replace a single faceto-face component with a virtual or digital equivalent, we know that a sustained learning journey over time is the only way to engage learners and drive behavior change. This insight looks at the steps you’ll need to explore to take your virtual learning to the next level.

The skills needed to succeed on the job are changing at an unprecedented pace. Reports say that skills learned today remain relevant for an average of only five years. Consequently, Learning and Development (L&D) professionals must train today's employees for the skills that will be needed tomorrow-even when those skills haven't yet been identified or, in some cases, created. Training employees for skills that haven't been invented yet is no easy task. So how can L&D upskill everyone from entry-level employees to senior management for an unforeseeable, quickly changing future? To do this, L&D first must identify: A framework for building future skills The most-needed emerging skills Capabilities for success, regardless of the skill set In this white paper, Training Top 10 Hall of Fame members explore these  challenges and detail how they are responding to future-proof their organizations, particularly in the wake of the Coronavirus and beyond.

As an L&D leader, you know that the business impact of learning and development is undeniable. In fact, a study by Bersin found that companies with high-impact learning programs generate, on average, three times higher profit growth than their peers.¹ Ongoing learning and development has the power to grow your employees, the business, and the results of your L&D programs. But all too frequently, it does not live up to its full potential. Why? Because in order to deploy effective employee learning and development, L&D professionals need to have a deep understanding of what motivates and inspires their people. L&D leaders that effectively shape their learning programs around the intrinsic needs, wants and motivators of their people - rather than expecting employees to adapt to a one-size-fits-all approach to learning - can improve employee engagement, learning retention and learning adoption. In this step-by-step guide, you'll learn the foundations behind three neuroscience principles of motivation - emotion, loss aversion, and social storytelling. You'll get the hands-on guidance you need to turn theory into practice and start applying these concepts to your L&D strategy immediately to boost learner engagement and learning outcomes.
