Is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs still relevant in the 21st century?

Is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs still relevant in the 21st century? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

A lot of people have seen Maslow’s hierarchy of needs before, especially as it pertains to any kind of people development, as it’s a psychological theory for motivation. The concept was shared in a 1943 paper by Abraham Maslow and more fully in a 1954 book, Motivation and Personality.

Maslow studied what he called ‘exemplary people’ such as Albert Einstein or Eleanor Roosevelt rather than people who were adversely affected by their psychology.

Why Your Training Is Failing... And How To Fix It

Why Your Training Is Failing... And How To Fix It | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

It seems outlandish to consider that the amount spent by companies on training has risen steadily over the past decade, culminating in a whopping $70.65 billion spent on training expenditures by U.S. firms in 2016 alone. Yet with all that money spent training their workforce, very few companies actually take the time to look at the actual effectiveness of their training programs.

The Association for Talent Development reported 95 percent of training was enjoyed by participants, but only 37 percent of training resulted in participants learning the material, only 13 percent reached a level where participants applied what they learned, and a mere 3 percent of training reached a level where the organization felt an impact.

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, August 9, 4:12 PM

One third of what I do is training (hiring, retention, and performance management). I do 50-60 talks a year for CEO groups and senior executive groups like YPO, EO, and Vistage. I also do the same presentation at larger management retreats, tradeshows, and conferences. In the last 20 years, I've probably trained over 25,000 CEOs and senior executives. I'm stunned to see a survey that shows only 3% of executives feel training had an impact. Either something is wrong with the training delivery or the process after the training to gain value/impact. Maybe it's a little bit of both.

6 Reasons Not to Use SMART Goals For Everything

6 Reasons Not to Use SMART Goals For Everything | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

You’re probably familiar with the concept of SMART goals. SMART is commonly defined as Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound.

Organizations use these goals with two primary aims in mind. When addressing each aspect of the initials in SMART goals, the anticipated result is a clearly-defined direction for employees, and a well-set timeline to overcome procrastination and motivate employees to stay on track.

It is easy to see how you could expect SMART goals to work best when you are trying to reach a well-defined concrete target under a steady-state situation. Where you can see the target as realistic and the progress within your control, they are great for providing short-term direction and planning progress toward a long-term goal.

Using the Conscious Competence Ladder for Better Workplace Learning

Using the Conscious Competence Ladder for Better Workplace Learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
Start every learning intervention with an assessment of where your employees are regarding the learning ladder. Help them become aware of how much they already know or don’t know, and of what they “think” they know but may be doing wrong. Use this as a starting point to move your learners up the ladder.

How to cultivate agility through learning

How to cultivate agility through learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

To survive and succeed in today’s fast-moving, ever-changing world, organisations need L&D functions that are ready for, and responsive to, change.

But L&D has to be more than that – it has to be at the forefront of change, cultivating agility and helping organisations respond to organisational change. That’s why cultivating agility through learning is such a key requirement in today’s L&D teams.

5 onboarding mistakes that drive away new staff

5 onboarding mistakes that drive away new staff | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
Nearly 90% of firms estimate that between 10% and 25% of new employees leave within the first six months.

According to the Korn Ferry Futurestep Survey, the top reason new recruits leave is their role is different from what they expected it would be during the hiring process. 19% revealed that they don’t like the company’s culture.

Often, it’s an accumulation of negative experiences that drive new recruits away, which is why it's crucial that the onboarding process isn't overlooked.

Social learning: A retail case study

Social learning: A retail case study | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Social learning is nothing new. In fact Albert Bandura developed one of the most relevant theories in 1925. This model talks about the ‘reciprocal determinism’, meaning the world and people’s behaviour affect each other. 

It’s interesting in learning and development as we have seen a move to ‘talent developers’ and are also incorporating ‘culture and environment’ into our roles. This makes sense really, assuming you agree with Bandura’s Theory. Your world, culture and environment influences your behaviours and therefore learning.

4 Questions to Ask Before Providing Training

4 Questions to Ask Before Providing Training | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

People learn without training. What?! It’s true! Whether at work or at home, we build our knowledge and skills every day to become more effective contributors to our communities. However, traditional workplace L&D tactics remain focused on the small percentage of learning that takes place through structured training experiences. As work becomes more complex and organizations demand increased agility, L&D must adopt a new framework for addressing knowledge and performance challenges.

Unconscious bias in action: four of the most common bias-related issues in people decisions

Unconscious bias in action: four of the most common bias-related issues in people decisions | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

A while ago, I spoke to an investment banker who believed that he was far too clever to have unconscious biases. His argument was that he was so intelligent, everything passed through his conscious mind in order to get into his unconscious mind. He therefore believed it was impossible for him to have any unconscious biases at all, and moreover that his unconscious was largely redundant.
 
I sincerely hope that is not the case, given that our conscious mind only makes up around 10% of our brain’s thinking and reasoning capacity – to have 90% of our capacity sitting there unused seems like such a waste.

Surprising Research Says Negative Feedback Is Effective (and We Might Even Prefer It)

Surprising Research Says Negative Feedback Is Effective (and We Might Even Prefer It) | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Few people like hearing bad news about themselves. Getting a tough performance review or being called out for a mistake challenges our status and triggers feelings of shame, frustration, and helplessness. Negative feedback floods the brain with stress-inducing hormones that raise our threat awareness and causes a momentary loss of executive functioning.

If an unfavorable report makes you think you’ve lost your mind, it’s probably because you have.

But before we write off the criticisms we receive from bosses and friends, here’s the surprising part about negative feedback: It might actually be good for us.

Andrea Ross's curator insight, July 28, 9:09 PM

As long as feedback is given constructively then it's a win win situation. It's when it's delivered the wrong way when problems arise and people feel threatened. This is a topic I cover in my Billing Manager course in Singapore so if you would like to nail this skill then please reach out.

The challenges of learning in the workplace

The challenges of learning in the workplace | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

For those practising within education, the challenge of an appropriate model of design, delivery and assessment has been a long-standing one since Malcolm Knowles (1913 – 1997) promoted the alternative approach of andragogy and educationalists began to apply its principles to adult, further and higher education environments.

For those responsible for the delivery of education and training to employees however – practising within neither traditional compulsory education or optional further education – identification of an appropriate educational approach to adopt with learners remains difficult.

Originally termed by the German educationalist Alexander Kapp, Knowles recognised the learning of adults as fundamentally different to that of children, with his initial 1968 article highlighting the life experience, self-direction, and the practical, problem-based approach to education and training which younger learners may lack.

Return on investment.” When a business has made an (often significant) investment in an employee training and development program, they want to see tangible results. But what type of results should we measure?

Employee training and development is a ‘people’ investment just as much as it’s a ‘cash’ investment. The returns from an organization’s investment in their people can help improve talent recruitment, increase employee retention and engagement, and perhaps most importantly, contribute to a positive work environment.
