Do more with less: Train smarter not harder (Part 1) | | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

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.

When Employees Give Feedback

When Employees Give Feedback | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

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?

How Teaching Mindfulness Benefits Learning

How Teaching Mindfulness Benefits Learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

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?

Developing talent in the over-50s – are we doing enough?

Developing talent in the over-50s – are we doing enough? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

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.

Why People With Multicultural Experience Are More Creative

Why People With Multicultural Experience Are More Creative | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

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.

Another way of showing how reading widely does more than just "broaden your world."


"When you dive into a second culture, two interesting things happen. First, it increases your overall openness to new experiences ... As second thing that happens is that you being to recognize that everything in the world can be viewed in many different ways."
