In the midst of this digital hype instigated by social media and web technologies, much of the concern and discussion emanating from education community is centrally focused on the digital and technical skills required for thriving in a knowledge economy.Unarguably, digitality is an important part of our students' lives and knowing how to handle it is definitely a pressing requirement, but there are also more important areas that students need to attend to in order to maintain a balanced individual growth. One of them is the emotional part.
Owners, MD’s and marketing managers at training companies regularly tell me they are constantly under pressure to “do more with less”, having to come up with new and innovative ways to deliver training and grow their business.
Client budgets are being squeezed, saturation amongst training providers is high and operating costs continue to climb.
Despite these challenging conditions, business change and growth still needs to occur – CEO’s are now looking to directors and managers to be the catalyst for this change.
It’s Friday afternoon and one of your employees asks for a private meeting. Before you even close the door, she tells you she’s found another job and is leaving the company. Once you get over the shock, how should you respond? How do you cover her responsibilities? And how do you make sure that the rest of your team isn’t overburdened when she leaves?
Performance reviews, while they’ve earned a bad rap, mean well. They’re intended to help develop employees and assist them in reaching their work-related goals. Or, at least, they should be
An element of the performance review that is often overlooked, however, is feedback. Not feedback from managers to their employees (there’s no shortage of that), but the other way around.
As a leader, welcoming feedback from employees can be difficult. Not to mention, giving that feedback can be intimidating for employees. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have something to say. The question is, are you listening?
"You might have learned or seen many techniques to create an effective eLearning. But after all these learnings have you ever realized that to gain and retain the attention of a Learner is the most challenging aspect of an eLearning course design. In this article, I will take you through an effective 5 step design model to gain the attention of a Learner."
Think about the last course you went on, or the last presentation you watched. What do you remember about it? A couple of things, if you include the chocolate hobnobs they had at the break – or not even that? Now think of a course you went on a year or more ago. Can you remember anything from it at all?
Poor performance when left to fester can have a massively detrimental effect on both managers and organisations as much, if not more than the individual guilty of it. Follow Edge’s seven-point plan to help failing team members raise their game
It's no secret that social and emotional well-being can directly influence academic outcomes. When we are in tune with our emotions, we pay attention tot he right things and make sound decisions; when we fail to manage our feelings, our thinking becomes impaired. Many of us have been incorporating social-emotional learning (SEL) into our lesson plans for years. So what’s the deal with this “mindfulness” movement we keep hearing so much about?
The UK is experiencing an aging workforce, and this is particularly prevalent in industries such as construction and engineering. Both those industries have gone a long way to try and counteract the issue – increasing investment in apprenticeship schemes, for example – but the majority of those interventions are focused on bringing in and developing talent at the younger end of the scale, i.e. school and university leavers.
It is important to focus on the younger generation in order to secure a long and healthy talent pipeline for the future. But there seems to be worryingly few development opportunities for those nearer the end of their working lives. This not only has a negative impact on the affected individuals in that age group, but also means employers are missing out on harnessing that talent and losing the opportunities that come with it.
There's no end to what we can achieve if we all start sharing, working, and learning together, to help prepare our students for a future that is ever changing. I, for one, can't wait to see what we'll come up with next -- together!

Most creative people have two things in common: They are willing to consider alternatives to the way things are currently done, and they see objects, people, and situations from multiple perspectives.
After all, if you shun new experiences, you will miss out on exciting opportunities. And many of those opportunities involve seeing existing elements of the world in a new way. Research by Adam Galinsky and his colleagues at Columbia Business School suggest that one way to enhance these two skills is to immerse yourself in a multicultural experience.
