10 Essential Skills for The 21st Century Worker/ Learner | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Here is an interesting infographic from university of Phoenix featuring 10 essential skills for the successful worker.Going through the list we remarked that these skills are important not only for a successful work for successful learners as well. In fact, these skills represent the ethos of the 21st century epoch, an era where knowledge economy and the social capital are so interdependently connected that it becomes extremely hard to decipher the dividing line between the two.

(From the article): Try these questions, see how they work, and find the questions that work best for you. Consider open-ended questions, rather than questions that have only one right answer or that can be answered with a simple “yes” or “no.” The most powerful questions are those that expand your thinking.

MOOCs for Corporate E-learning

MOOCs for Corporate E-learning | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

"Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs are relatively new yet already a rage, so much so that the New York Times named 2012 as the ‘Year of the MOOC’. What started as an initiative by the Stanford University in 2011 has quickly found its applications as a learning medium in educational institutions and corporates alike. MOOCs are massive, open and online – i.e. they are freely delivered over the internet to anyone who wants to enroll. In fact, the first MOOC started by the Stanford University reached out to 160,000 students."

Joran Le Cren's curator insight, April 11, 7:24 AM

MOOCs are real alternatives to usual corporate trainings. They are flexible and affordable.

 

In France, government grants help companies to deliver trainings to their employees. The good side is some trainings are free for the company. The bad side is the displayed prices for the trainings get higher for no real reasons. Therefore, companies are used to pay almost nothing thanks to the government grants and they are reluctant to pay anything if the course is not vetted by the government, even if it means to pay only few euros for a MOOC.

 

Before betting on Corporate MOOCs in France, it is necessary to re-educate companies in investing in their employees' growth.

How to get more from 360 feedback

How to get more from 360 feedback | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

So many organisations are stuck in outdated performance management practices that don’t match the needs of today’s workplace. Sadly, Deloitte research [1] shows that only 8% of companies believe their performance management process drives high levels of value, while 58% say it’s not an effective use of time. It seems that employees aren’t impressed either. Around one in three UK workers think their company’s performance management process is unfair [2], a waste of time, and fails to contribute to their personal career development [3].

This article shows the different customs on gestures or body language in the world. What we might do is disrespectful in another country. For example, even some as simple as crossing your legs while sitting is common in North America and some European countries. However, it is viewed disrespectful in Asia and the Middle East.

Emotional Intelligence: How To Develop The Skills | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Emotional intelligence is a shorthand that psychological researchers use to describe how well individuals can manage their own emotions and react to the emotions of others. People who exhibit emotional intelligence have the less-obvious skills necessary to get ahead in life, such as managing conflict resolution, reading and responding to the needs of others, and keeping their own emotions from overflowing and disrupting their lives. In this guide, we’ll look at what emotional intelligence is, and how to develop your own.

Despite all the positive press coverage and the support of all the main political parties, only a relatively small number (about 13%) of employers in the UK actually offer Apprenticeships. That number is growing, but it is doing so very slowly and clearly if we want to develop a world-class programme, we should be aiming to attract at least 50% of employers into the programme.

How To Apologize Like You Really Mean It

Everything you need to know about saying "sorry" in the most authentic way possible.

Via donhornsby

donhornsby's curator insight, April 6, 10:15 AM

(From the article): When you think about it, it’s surprising that we’re often so bad at apologizing. After all, we are frequently on the receiving end of apologies ourselves—so we should know what works and what doesn’t, right? In reality, we often forget what it’s like to be on the other side—whether we’re trying to apologize, persuade, help, or motivate.

 

So when crafting your apology, remember to ask yourself, "Who am I talking to, and what are they looking for in my apology?" The guy on the subway doesn’t want to hear that you "feel his pain"—but when you forget your spouse’s birthday, your loved one definitely would like you to feel his or hers.
