Genuine behaviour change requires a deeper approach | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Most people understand that our behaviour directly impacts the results we get.

In dynamic and complex environments, there are some critical behaviours that enable us to collaborate better, develop higher levels of cross-functional alignment and build more trusting relationships.

These behaviours, critical to driving performance, include the ability to think flexibly, to be empathetic and to create coherence within a team.

However these behaviours are, unfortunately, often rare in individuals, and are also incredibly hard to develop.

Whilst the Nine Box Grid has become a popular way of trying to identifying an organisation’s future talent, the impact of this on employee engagement is a relatively underexplored question.

When managers are asked to rate their staff on the Nine Box Grid, the majority tend to place their staff in the top right of the grid; the 'future talent' boxes. Managers, it would appear, are aware of the potentially demotivating impact of being placed outside these boxes.

Why the term 'millennial' needs to get in the bin, now.

Why the term 'millennial' needs to get in the bin, now. | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
First there were the Baby Boomers, then Generation X, and now we have….the millennials.

It sounds like it should refer to a slick troupe of pilots in a Star Wars film, or some wizened old veterans, but no, ‘millennial’ has become the latest dirty word to generalise a generation and patronise your peers.

Every day seems to bring a new ‘how to attract/retain/engage your millennial workforce’ article, consistently reminding us how different, how demanding, how disloyal, how mind-boggling we are as employees. And do you know what? I don’t buy it.

What does neuroscience say about how and why people learn? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

In this series, originally posted on our sister site TrainingZone, we look at a number of myths which have grown up around good learning strategy and design and take the findings from neuroscience to confirm or bust them. This series is drawn from the book Brain-savvy Business: 8 principles from neuroscience and how to apply them. Jan is giving away 20 books, one to each reader who contributes a short example of how they will use the ideas in the series or of how they have applied neuroscience to learning.
