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.
According to Accor Services 90% of organizations say employee engagement impacts business success, but 75% of organizations have no engagement plan or strategy.

Dale Carnegie Training’s White Paper "Building a Culture of Engagement: The Importance of Senior Leadership" explains how leaders can build a workforce around organizational engagement which gives their company's a competitive advantage.

All of the assumptions in our "Common-Sense" article are based upon a well-tested psychological principle, such as Maslow's heirarchy of needs, the Yerkes-Dodson law, psychology's law of effect, the Hawthorne effect, Herzbergs's two-factor theory, and even a few well-tested hypotheses of our own. But don't let the names intimidate you. These are simple, verifiable, ideas—the kind of assumptions you make everyday about the people you supervise. Each of the concepts we discuss is an example of what we call tested common sense assumptions made about human nature that have been empirically verified through psychological research or through actual application in the "real world" of the workplace.
Talking with the C-suite, having a seat at the table, being a trusted advisor…whatever you call it, this form of success only comes from credibility fostered by a reputation of consistently giving good advice.   That requires being accurate, intuitive, and trustworthy - attributes that can be built only over time. To foster that perception and, thus, gain access to the C-suite, Learning and Development (L&D) leaders must understand the business, see the big picture, and be able to tap subject matter experts to provide the granularity required to ensure that each development activity adds value. Development for development’s sake is not an option. The inkling that L&D could be a valuable business consultant begins with small things—successes forged despite adversity—and grows with consistent improvements until, eventually, the C-suite routinely seeks its input.   With guidance and tips from the Training Top 10 Hall of Fame organizations, this white paper will help you develop what it takes to propel yourself and your department into the confidence of senior leaders, reliably and consistently.

Today’s business world seems enamored with design thinking. The popular problem-solving and innovation approach has generated widespread discussion and acclaim; it’s been credited for disrupting traditional markets, sparking groundbreaking ideas in flagging industries and positioning companies to achieve unprecedented growth. But what exactly is design thinking? And does it really live up to its reputation?
THE 70:20:10 FRAMEWORK More and more businesses are adopting 70:20:10 to help build organizational strength. However, a question often posed is whether the approach is a theory of workplace learning, a way of cutting down on training costs, or a mantra to be followed slavishly. Alternatively, is 70:20:10 simply ‘old wine in new bottles’ given that most Learning and Development (L&D) professionals think they already combine learning and work? Some ask ‘why bother with 70:20:10 at all’? Additionally, ‘what is it with this neat formula - 70, 20, 10’? People are suspicious of nice round numbers. Surely the reality of learning and performing is much too complex to be described in terms of simple ratios? Despite all these criticisms, there’s a worldwide movement of L&D professionals who realize and acknowledge the value of 70:20:10. This is not because it’s a mantra, an ideology or an end in itself, but because it enables them to connect more quickly and effectively to what really matters: learning and performing at the speed of business. Their work isn’t just about providing formal learning solutions. By using 70:20:10 as a reference model, more and more L&D professionals are co-creating solutions with their business colleagues. This ‘movement’ and new way of working with 70:20:10 makes L&D more relevant to their organizations.

Those leading a function have arguably the greatest impact on overall business performance, yet organizations continue to underinvest in developing this level of their talent pipeline. Many organizations are missing a huge opportunity to drive business growth. Why? With significant spans of responsibility, function leaders offer immense competitive value. While strategic executives determine the company's mission and direction, functional executives control expenses, manage resources, make decisions about specific projects that will be undertaken, and drive the success or failure of many strategic priorities. Learn why the development of function leaders is an imperative in the new MDA white paper, Developing Those Who Lead Functions: A Critical Leverage Point for Boosting Organizational Performance.

Improving Outcomes in the Age of Online Training If there’s one challenge every corporate trainer faces, it’s this: Creating a collaborative online experience is hard.
